2012 NCAA Tournament: Announcer Schedule For First Four, Second Round

It was a bonanza for college basketball fans on Selection Sunday as we learned the full NCAA Tournament field, then found out when and where everyone would be playing shortly thereafter. In addition to the March Madness schedule, though, CBS and Turner released another important bit of information: The announcing teams.

If you've seen any of the NCAA Tournament before, you know how much the announcers can add or take away from the experience. In an effort to help you, faithful March Madness watcher, seek out the best announcers and know which games might need to be muted, we've put together a list of which broadcasters are where after the jump.
