The action gets kicked off with the First Four games, with Marv Albert and Steve Kerr on the call first, with Craig Sager — and his swagged out suits — on the sidelines reporting. They’ll call the first set of First Round games of (16) North Carolina A&T/(16) Liberty game (at 6:40 p.m. EST) and (11) Middle Tennessee State/(11) St. Mary’s afterward, on Tuesday in Dayton.
