NCAA First Round Announcer Pairings: Thursday

    
March 15th, 2010
The tournament gets under way with the sweet sounds of Kevin Harlan. The lead Packer/Nantz crew is in Jacksonville so won't be heard from on Thursday.. they're covering Duke like they did last year. Newcomer Spero Dedes along with Bob Wenzel are relegated to the west coast to do the weird 2:30/5:00 time slot.. yet they have perhaps 2 of the most interesting games, where UTEP is a trendy pick over Butler and Murray St is easily the class of the #13 seeds. The Thursday night set of games seems particularly lacking in drama.
