2024 March Madness live stream: NCAA Tournament TV schedule, watch Elite Eight streaming online Saturday

We are getting closer to the final stages of the 2024 NCAA Tournament and after starting with 68 teams 13 days ago, there are just eight teams remaining, after 60 have been eliminated and by the end of Saturday night, two teams will have their tickets punched to the Final Four in Glendale, Arizona. The East Regional Final and West Regional Final will command the attention of the college basketball world in primetime, filling out the left side of the bracket and setting up one of the two matchups for next weekend’s national semifinal. 

Up first will be No. 1 UConn taking on No. 3 Illinois in the East Regional final from Boston (6:09 p.m. ET, TBS and March Madness Live), where the Huskies have carried over the dominance from last year’s six-game title march into their 2024 campaign to repeat. But in Illinois the reigning champs get not only their toughest foe of the tournament in 2024, but one with a higher offensive rating than any team in the country. 

Then the back end of the doubleheader will feature the unlikely matchup of No. 4 Alabama against No. 6 Clemson in the West Regional final from Los Angeles (8:49 p.m. ET, TBS and March Madness Live), with both teams surging into the weekend after upsetting the top two seeds in the region on Thursday night. All the Hollywood scripts for a reunion of North Carolina and Arizona’s Caleb Love in the Elite Eight were rewritten over the course of 80 minutes of basketball, and now a new storyline has emerged with these two schools who are used to competing against each other for championships in football and now hit the hardwood with a Final Four bid hanging in the balance. 

This is the time when legacies are established and identities are forged. We play months of regular season basketball, but how we talk about the coaches, players and programs within the sport are defined by the results of single-elimination tournaments each March. A Final Four appearance is one of those benchmarks we always take note of, and Saturday night’s games will provide that opportunity to two of this tournament’s teams. 

Let’s take a look at some of the storylines to know for Saturday’s Elite Eight matchups.
