Channels, Tip Times And Announcers For All 2011 First And Second Round NCAA Tournament Games

If you were looking for the starting times, announcers, and the right channel for each of the first and second round games, you've come to the right spot.

As you'll notice, West Virginia has the privilege of leading off the tournament's main section on CBS at 12:15 pm on Thursday.  This ensures the whole nation will see our game and avoids the purgatory that is truTV, which is too cool for both proper spelling and capitalization.  Though, unfortunately, we'll certainly lose some viewers looking for their midday edition of Cops!

We weren't so lucky as to land the services of Gus Johnson on play-by-play, getting the tandem of Ian Eagle and Jim Spanarkel instead.  The over/under on references of Spanarkel and Duke currently stands at eight.  Get your money in while the gettin's good.
