NCAA Tournament Schedule 2011: Times, TV Information And Announcers For Sunday's Third Round Games

Friday's second round games brought few upsets to speak of, though two No. 11 seeds survived to advance to the round of 32 in the NCAA Tournament. Virginia Commonwealth continued to prove the doubters wrong by blowing out Georgetown on Friday night, 74-56. In a less surprising upset, Marquette advanced to the round of 32 with a 66-55 win over Xavier.

On Sunday, the 16 teams that made it out of Friday battle it out with a spot in the Sweet Sixteen on the line. Three of the four No. 1 seeds -- Duke, Ohio State and Kansas -- hit the court on Sunday after cruising to first round wins over vastly over-matched teams.

The games begin at 12:15 p.m. Eastern as North Carolina and Washington tip-off in the first of eight matchups. The times for all of Sunday's matchups are below.

NCAA Tournament Schedule 2011: Complete Times And TV Info For Saturday's Third Round Games

With Thursday's 16 second round games in the books, we can began to look ahead to the third round of the 2011 NCAA Bracket, and perhaps more importantly, the complete television schedule and channel lineup. 

As will be the case throughout the NCAA Tournament, every game will be aired live and in its entirety on one of the four March Madness networks: CBS, TNT, TBS and truTV. And of course, the NCAA's March Madness On Demand site will be live-streaming all the games online (and on your iPad and iPhone ... being alive in 2011 is pretty great). 

Saturday's games start at 12:15 p.m. EDT, just like Thursday and Friday, but with just eight games, the schedule is a bit more spread out. No. 4 Kentucky and No. 5 West Virginia get things started in the East Region, playing for a spot in the Sweet 16. 

The times for Sunday's third-round games will be announced Friday night, after the conclusion of the day's games.
