Here we go, the schedule and announcing assignments for the 2nd Round of the NCAA Tournament. These are the games for Saturday, March 18.
As usual, CBS begins with an afternoon tripleheader. CBS will tip us off with the two games in Buffalo, first with an old school Big East Conference matchup pitting West Virginia vs. Notre Dame and then defending national champion Villanova facing Wisconsin. Uncle Verne Lundquist, Jim Spanarkel and Allie LaForce will be on hand.
Then we’ll head to Salt Lake City where Northwestern hopes to continue its magic carpet ride taking on West Region number one seed Gonzaga. CBS’ final game of the night will be Arizona vs. St. Mary’s. Friend of Fang’s BItes Andrew Catalon, Steve Lappas and another Friend of Fang’s Bites Jamie Erdahl will be in Utah for the late CBS doubleheader.
