We’re posting a series of posts that examines the first round in great detail all day Monday (Rob already started the heavy lifting with his regional breakdowns), including the best first-round games, matchups we want to see, players to know and more.

But none of that helps you very much without knowing what games are on at what times,right?

So, with a nod to CBSSports.com for parsing it out, here’s a list of games by day and times, with the TV announcer pairings included. If there’s a city listed, that’s the pod in which the game is played.

Consider it our March Madness gift to you.

    Too bad Gus Johnson left CBS. He and Len Elmore were the best announcing pairing out there.
