NCAA Tournament Round One: Thursday CBS Announcer Pairings

 

Not surprising, Final Four pair Nantz/Kellogg get the event's first game, which leads into North Carolina, and then Duke in the evening. Portland has perhaps the most interesting set of games on Thursday, with Harlan/Bonner covering two 12-5 games, and two more 13-4s, all of which may feature potential upsets.
