The NCAA Men’s Tournament is officially on and the Big Women’s Dance begins tonight. So finalize those brackets and prepare to tear them up when two of your Final Four teams lose on the first weekend.
Also on the schedule in the sports world tonight are clashes between Kevin Durant and Luka Donćič, as well as a Bay Area showdown between Stephen Curry and Jayson Tatum.
Here’s what I’m looking at today.
A quick note: Due to COVID-19, sports schedules are fluid and subject to change.
Men’s college basketball: No. 11 Notre Dame vs. No. 11 Rutgers
After sweating the bubble on draft Sunday, these two clubs snuck into the big dance and will now face off for the chance to play Alabama in the first round of the tournament on Friday. The Scarlet Knights were dangerously close to the cut line despite finishing fourth in a busy Big Ten conference due to a poor run in non-conference play, but could now be a loud team thanks to veteran guards Ron Harper Jr., Paul Mulcahy and Geo Baker. Meanwhile, Notre Dame has plenty of experience to complement star rookie Blake Wesley, who helped the Irish make their first NCAA Men’s Tournament appearance since 2017.

• Liverpool to Arsenal | Liverpool have come back strong in the Premier League title race, and that push was boosted on Monday by Crystal Palace taking points from Manchester City. Getting three points at the Emirates Stadium would be a big step for Jürgen Klopp’s side in their quest for more silverware. 4:15 p.m. ET, Peacock
• Men’s CBB: No. 16 Bryant vs. No. 16 Wright State | This top four game features the nation’s leading scorer in Peter Kiss, who is averaging more than 25 points per game for Bryant and has a bit of a “bad boy” streak for him. The winner here advances to face No. 1 seed Arizona on Friday night. 6:40 p.m. ET, truTV
• Dallas Mavericks at Brooklyn Nets | Sunday’s outburst of 53 points and 9 assists from Kevin Durant is yet another reminder of why the Nets star is a fixture every time he steps on the court. Even without 60-point scorer Kyrie Irving, a game featuring Durant and Luka Donćič is the type of game worth watching. 7:30 p.m. ET, ESPN, watch on fuboTV
• Women’s CBB: #11 DePaul vs. #11 Dayton | For the first time, the NCAA Women’s Basketball Tournament has a First Four. It will be a fun game to kick off the expanded 68-team field, featuring one of the most successful teams in the country in DePaul against a Dayton program that has had its share of NCAA tournament success over the past the last decade. 9 p.m. ET, ESPNU, watch on fuboTV
Boston Celtics vs. Golden State Warriors
It hasn’t been quite smooth sailing for the Warriors lately, although Golden State picked up a huge victory late last week over the Nuggets which SI’s Chris Mannix says could be the start of a new game. a turnaround. Bringing Draymond Green back into the roster will definitely help the Dubs, especially as they approach the playoffs. Today’s game should be a good test against a Celtics side that played great ball last month and are making inroads in the Eastern Conference.
