The entire West Region could be set by the time the Wildcats even take the floor, so there is plenty of intrigue for Arizona fans throughout the day. West Virginia and Notre Dame kick things off at 9:10 AM PT, with the Gonzaga/Northwestern and Florida State/Xavier games going down later on in the day.

If you’re unable to watch these games on TV, you can also stream them on March Madness Live.
