Turner Sports To Join CBS For Selection Sunday

CBS won’t be the only network taking center stage on Selection Sunday, when the men’s field for the NCAA Tournament is revealed. Turner Sports will carry the March Madness show as well.

The one-hour show tips off Sunday at 6 p.m. EST, live from New York. It will be hosted by Greg Gumbel and as usual, feature insight from former Ohio State star and Indiana Pacers forward Clark Kellogg. College hoops insider Seth Davis will also join.

Tournament selection committee chairman Mitch Barnhart will also make a guest appearance remotely from Indianapolis to discuss the bracket once it’s set.

Along with CBS and Turner Sports, fans can view the selections via March Madness Live, available on the internet and phone apps.

All 67 games will be carried across CBS and three of Turner’s three networks — TNT, TBS and truTV. CBS will carry the NCAA Final Four on April 3, as well as the national championship game two nights later.

The entire tournament will take place in Indiana this year, with most of the games — including the Final Four — being held in Indianapolis.

  1. Oh good, Clay’s buddy Seth Davis, the world’s most insufferable prick who provides, at best, mediocre analysis. The Turner people, who don’t cover college basketball at all leading up to the Selection Show, then come in and offer up their similarly mediocre-to-terrible analysis. Just give me a 30 minute show where you show us the brackets, show us some elite college athletes congregated in a room wearing chin diapers as you unveil the brackets, and go home.
