NCAA tournament times, TV listings, announcer pairings

2 Comments

We’re posting a series of posts that examines the first round in great detail all day Monday (Rob already started the heavy lifting with his regional breakdowns), including the best first-round games, matchups we want to see, players to know and more.

But none of that helps you very much without knowing what games are on at what times,right?

So, with a nod to CBSSports.com for parsing it out, here’s a list of games by day and times, with the TV announcer pairings included. If there’s a city listed, that’s the pod in which the game is played.

Consider it our March Madness gift to you.

N.C. State, whose season has been something of a disaster to date, face a must-win game against Wake Forest in Raleigh on Saturday afternoon, and since nothing can be easy for Mark Gottfried’s club, they’ll have to find a way to win the game after their bus broke down en route to PNC Arena:

This is why you can’t have nice things, N.C. State.

VIDEO: North Carolina ball boy makes three straight halfcourt shots

Leave a comment

During North Carolina’s blowout win over N.C. State on Jan. 8, the Tar Heels weren’t the only ones in the building who were feeling it.

As it turns out, North Carolina ball boy Asher Lucas was the hottest shooter of anyone in the building that night.

During halftime of that Jan. 8 game, Lucas nailed three consecutive halfcourt shots, as his father, Adam Lucas, a North Carolina columnist, released the video this week to YouTube. The video quickly went viral as Asher’s unreal streak of shots was all over TV and the Internet.

The Tar Heels have been struggling to find consistent perimeter shooting for the last few seasons, so maybe they need to start scouting Asher for a future roster spot.

Oregon’s Dillon Brooks is ‘in a walking boot’, status still unclear

Oregon released a statement on Friday afternoon that said star forward Dillon Brooks had seen doctors and was in a walking boot, but gave no further update on his condition.

Brooks suffered what the program termed a “lower leg injury” on Thursday night against Cal. The injury was to his left leg – on replay, it looked like he rolled his ankle – which is concerning because his left foot is the foot that he injured over the summer, which caused him to miss the first three games of the season.

“He’ll be evaluated in the next couple of days and see where he’s at,” head coach Dana Altman said after Thursday’s game.
