Saturday Announcer Pairings. Nantz & Kellogg remain in Greensboro for the power pairing of Duke & UNC games. Unlike the first round, in which Dick Enberg only did one of two sessions, he'll be announcing both of the Philadelphia games.
The people's favorite Gus Johnson joins Len Elmore in Minneapolis to cover the day's best set of games. Meanwhile, the solid Lundquist/Raftery combo can be considered CBS' lead pair of the day as they get the #1 overall seed Louisville, #1 Pittsburgh, and 2 potentially close 8-9 games.
