TNT Sports begins its 2017 NCAA Tournament television coverage with the Butler Bulldogs vs Winthrop Eagles basketball game on Thursday afternoon.
Watch NCAA Tournament 2017 live streaming online free as an alternative to catching the second of several March Madness games on Thursday if you’re glued to a desk all day long.
Butler (4) is enjoying their highest seeding ever in the NCAA Tournament. They didn’t get that seed because they lost their final two games of the regular season and then the Big East tournament quarterfinal after that.
What has powered Butler into this position is not one, but two huge wins over top-ranked Villanova this season. No other team in the nation can say the same and that ability to knock off a number one seed makes Butler a threat to make a Final Four run.
When we watch Butler vs Winthrop live streaming or on TV today, the Eagles will be playing in their first NCAA Tournament since 2010. A big part of the reason for their appearance is a 17-2 run in 2017.
