OPPONENT LOCATION TV TIME
One of the fun but also sometimes frustrating aspects of the NCAA Tournament is that CBS televises multiple games at once. This can lead to some exciting in-game looks at close exciting games, but it also means you might be missing the game you really want to see. CBS released their coverage maps of Thursday's opening round action, and I've linked to the maps for each time-slot below.
CBS has announced the specific tip-off times of all first round games. Using our five-star rating, we rank the games according to their "Must-watch" status.
