2013 NCAA Tournament TV schedule: Announcers, game times for Thursday, Friday

USA TODAY Sports

All the important info on where to see your favorite team, and who'll be calling their games.

The NCAA Tournament is upon us again, which means for guys like me it's on to making sure that everyone else gets the times, networks and announcers correct for all their favorite teams during March Madness.

CBS, TNT, TBS and TruTV (did you know Shaq hosts a comedy show on that channel now? What an age we live in) will once again handle every game of the tournament, which means as long as you get TruTV you'll be able to flip around to every single game of the tournament without the fancy computer you're using right now.

What follows are the start times (approximate whenever it's in the case of the second game of a doubleheader), networks and broadcasters that will apply to the "first four" in Dayton, Ohio on Tuesday and Wednesday, as well as what the NCAA refers to as "Second Round" games across the country on Thursday and Friday.
