We now know the tip-off times for the NCAA Tournament’s Sweet Sixteen.

Purdue will follow the (5) West Virginia vs. (1) Villanova game in Boston that tips off at 7:27, the second of the two opening games on Friday.

This means (2) Purdue will be looking at roughly a 10 p.m. start against (3) Texas Tech, the winners of each game will go on to play Sunday in the East Region’s Elite Eight game.

This means the winner of Purdue vs. Texas Tech will likely be the last team into the Elite Eight. Purdue is coming off a victory over (10) Butler and Texas Tech defeated (6) Florida on Saturday.

The East region is the only bracket with their top-3 seeds still playing.

On the call for the games that will be broadcasted by TBS: Ian Eagle for play-by-play, Jim Spanararkel for color, and Allie LaForcee as the sideline reporter.
