Stick with WARR.com for more on the NCAA tournament, including an opening weekend recap on Monday.
Here’s each game for Saturday, their locations and their announcing teams and some commentary for select match-ups. All times are Central:
At Amway Center, Orlando, Fla.
Announcers: Brian Anderson, Dan Bonner, Kristine Leahy
11:15 a.m.: No. 1 Florida vs. No. 9 Pittsburgh (South Region)
*1:45 p.m.: No. 4 Louisville vs. No. 5 Saint Louis (Midwest Region)
—The Billikens showed as much heart as anyone in the tournament so far in its come-from-behind win over N.C. State (though the Wolfpack showed a lot of incompetence too), it’ll be interesting to see how that carries them into this game against a Cardinals squad that should want to make more of an impact than it did against Manhattan.
At BMO Harris Bradley Center, Milwaukee, Wis.
Announcers: Ian Eagle, Jim Spanarkel, Lewis Johnson
4:15 p.m.: No. 2 Michigan vs. No. 7 Texas (Midwest Region)
*6:45 p.m.: No. 2 Wisconsin vs. No. 7 Oregon (West Region)
— May be the best one day site for Big Ten basketball in the tourney since Michigan State and Illinois both played on National Semifinal Saturday (Final Four) in 2005.
At Spokane (Wash.) Memorial Arena
Announcers: Spero Dedes, Doug Gottlieb, Jaime Maggio
5:10 p.m.: No. 4 San Diego State vs. No. 12 North Dakota State (West Region)
*7:40 p.m.: No. 4 Michigan State vs. No. 12 Harvard (East Region)
— A lot of people are going to want to see how MSU (and Adreian Payne in particular) follow up their big win on Thursday but you have to figure Harvard has the “David” thing down in regards to basketball, and the overwhelming belief that Sparty will at least make the Final Four could make this game very intriguing if played close.
At First Niagara Center, Buffalo, N.Y.
Announcers: Verne Lundquist, Bill Raftery, Allie LaForce
6:10 p.m.: No. 3 Syracuse vs. No. 11 Dayton (South Region)
*8:40 p.m.: No. 2 Villanova vs. No. 7 Connecticut (East Region)
— Long live the REAL Big East
* – approximate time, game will start about 30 minutes after the conclusion of the earlier contest
