Sports TV Schedule 03/17: NCAA Tournament Times, Stations, Announcers

This afternoon we get our first real taste of the expanded television coverage format for the NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament. Games begin at 12:15 p.m. ET with West Virginia taking on Clemson (CBS) and run though 9:57 p.m. when Utah State faces Kansas State on truTV. Start times will be staggered and games will be broadcast in their entirety on CBS, truTV, TBS and TNT. A college hoops junkie could not ask for better.

Not in front of a TV today? You can also get March Madness on Demand for your computer or mobile device.
