2011 March Madness Schedule: Thursday TV Game Times, Announcers

Today's the day the NCAA tournament really gets underway. They're calling this the "second round", but now with the play-in games done, what we used to call the "first round" begins today, with 16 games -- and you can watch them all, on four different networks. Your remote will get quite a bit of exercise today, especially if you also want to watch the Bulls or Blackhawks tonight. All times listed are Central Daylight and are approximate based on when games end.
