Tip times and TV information for first two rounds

All times listed are in Eastern Time, with the second window in each doubleheader slate slated for 30 minutes after the conclusion of the first game.  Those start times are approximate, so it is best to check with Greg Gumbel and Ernie Johnson in New York or Matt Winer from Atlanta for the exact times.

One last note, when all sixteen games are done on Thursday–we will know the exact tip times and channels for the third round with CBS handling the day games and the other Turner outlets at night.  Similar case for Sunday once the Friday games have gone final.

Stay tuned to see my bracket, which hopefully will be scanned sometime tonight or during the day on Tuesday.
