2019 NCAA Tournament: First round results, schedule, college basketball scores for March Madness first-round games

The first wall-to-wall day of the NCAA Tournament has come and gone, and while there was no wild and unpredictable upsets of note, your bracket's already got some red marks on it, doesn't it? (If you haven't already ripped it to complete shreds and left it at the street corner for the garbage man to pick up tomorrow).

Maybe No. 9 seed Baylor defeating No. 8 seed Syracuse is to blame. Perhaps No. 12 seed Murray State, led by star Ja Morant's triple-double, is at fault. Or maybe you're pinning this one on No. 7 seed Louisville falling to the younger Pitino, Richard, who led No. 10 seed Minnesota to an upset over the Cardinals club formerly coached by his father, Rick Pitino.

Whatever the case, tomorrow is a new day. It's not too late to piece that shredded bracket back together. Friday presents a much more tantalizing slate overall, with three of the No. 1 seeds debuting, and 16 games in total set to be played throughout the afternoon. As always, we'll keep you covered right here, but in the meantime, below are the scores you missed. You can check out our full recap of the day's biggest winners and losers right here.
