Watch VCU vs Saint Mary’s 2023 NCAA Tournament First Round Basketball

A very confident #5 Saint Mary’s Gaels Men’s basketball team begin their 2023 NCAA Tournament run Friday in Round One against the #12 VCU Rams at 2 pm ET / 11 am PT on TBS. SMC are favored to advance, but don’t expect a blowout final score by either team.

If you don’t currently have access to TBS, find out how to watch the SMC and VCU NCAA Tournament basketball game online free without cable by taking advantage of a live streaming service free trial.

DirecTV Stream Free Trial

DirecTV Stream is a loaded live streaming service offering different tier channel offerings at different price points. TBS is included in the base “Entertainment package” as well as all higher tiers.

Best of all there’s now no annual contract and a free trial to enjoy.

Since NCAA Tournament games will be televised on TBS, it makes a lot of sense to signup for the trial and get all the NCAA Tournament First and Second Round games they televise, as well as truTV and TNT that are also in the base “Entertainment” package.

Hulu + Live TV

Another way to watch the 2023 NCAA Tournament college basketball games online without cable is to tryout Hulu + Live TV. Hulu’s Live TV channel selection includes the full suite of channels televising the Big Dance: truTV, TNT, TBS, CBS; as well as many other channels.
