Thursday CBS Coverage Maps: What You'll See

March 15th, 2010
One of the fun but also sometimes frustrating aspects of the NCAA Tournament is that CBS televises multiple games at once. This can lead to some exciting in-game looks at close exciting games, but it also means you might be missing the game you really want to see.

NCAA First Round Announcer Pairings: Friday

March 15th, 2010
The tournament gets under way with the sweet sounds of Kevin Harlan. The lead Packer/Nantz crew is in Jacksonville so won't be heard from on Thursday.. they're covering Duke like they did last year. Newcomer Spero Dedes along with Bob Wenzel are relegated to the west coast to do the weird 2:30/5:00 time slot.. yet they have perhaps 2 of the most interesting games, where UTEP is a trendy pick over Butler and Murray St is easily the class of the #13 seeds. The Thursday night set of games seems particularly lacking in drama.

The people's favorite Gus Johnson joins Len Elmore in Minneapolis to cover the day's best set of games. Meanwhile, the solid Lundquist/Raftery combo can be considered CBS' lead pair of the day as they get the #1 overall seed Louisville, #1 Pittsburgh, and 2 potentially close 8-9 games.
