The time has come: the Round of 64 is here (enough with that First Four nonsense—those are play-in games) and the NCAA men’s basketball tournament really begins. Make sure your brackets are filled out before the first game starts, and sit back for a long weekend of basketball, maybe the best weekend in sports all year long.
It’s been a long time since a team has come in as favored to win the tournament as the undefeated Kentucky Wildcats, who are seeking to win the title as an undefeated team for the first time since Bobby Knight did so with his Indiana Hoosiers more than thirty years ago. But anything can happen when it’s winner take all in every particular game, and you’ll want to be there to see all the blowouts, upsets, and highlights.
CBS Sports has the rights to the NCAA men’s basketball tournament, so you can find all of your March Madness viewing on CBS-owned cable and network television. Check out the schedule, and make sure to find where all those channels are on your cable television package. This year, games will air on:
You may ask yourself: “Really, truTV?” Yes, the channel with all the courtroom shows and true crime documentaries that form the basis for CSI episodes is hosting NCAA tournament basketball once again, as part of the CBS/Turner Sports team-up. Look up where it is available from your provider, and be sure to find the HD feed: you’ll hope you have found a cable provider with the most HD channels in your area.
Games begin today at 12:15 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time. Get ready.
