NCAA Championship Game Time: Setting the TV Lineup for the Title Game
The NCAA championship game is all set between the Connecticut Huskies and Butler Bulldogs. Jim Calhoun is looking to win his third national championship at UConn, while Brad Stevens is looking to avenge last season's two-point loss in the championship game to the Duke Blue Devils.
Once again, CBS has full coverage of all the action of the night, starting with the pregame beginning at 9:00 PM. The actual opening tip is scheduled for 9:23 PM, and you can stay tuned for the postgame festivities, including the trophy presentation, as well as the traditional One Shining Moment montage to conclude the 2011 NCAA tournament.
Jim Nantz will call the game along with Clark Kellogg and Steve Kerr. Tracy Wolfson is expected to serve as the broadcaster on the court.
The studio show will take place before the game and at halftime, with Greg Gumbel leading the way with Greg Anthony, Charles Barkley, Seth Davis and Kenny Smith.
If you cannot watch the game, or would prefer to watch with the mute button on, Westwood One will have the live radio broadcast. Kevin Lugler, John Thompson and Bill Raftery will have the on-air call.
This championship will conclude a historical tournament. It was the first ever NCAA tournament to feature no No. 1 or No. 2 seeds in the Final Four. It was also the largest NCAA tournament of all time, with 68 teams to start.
But for the Huskies and Bulldogs, history is of no concern. All they care bout is being able to cut down the nets after the final buzzer sounds.
Unfortunately, only one will be able to live their own One Shining Moment.
