March Madness 2024 live stream: Where to watch the Elite Eight of the NCAA Tournament

After a riveting Sweet 16, only eight teams remain in the 2024 NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Championship. The Elite Eight determines the winner of each region and, more importantly, punches a ticket to the Final Four next weekend in Phoenix. For some of these teams, making the Final Four would represent a landmark moment for their universities. 

Can anyone stop No. 1 UConn? The defending national champions looked unstoppable in their 82-52 Sweet 16 victory over No. 4 San Diego State. The Huskies have now won their last nine NCAA Tournament games by an average of 22.9 points per game. Another intriguing matchup pits No. 4 Alabama against No. 6 Clemson. These football schools are trying to prove that their basketball teams belong among the elite. The winner of the game will reach the Final Four for the first time in their program’s history.
