BRISTOL, Conn. — The NCAA tournament selection show has been changed to a 6 p.m. (ET) start time this Sunday, and is still scheduled to be aired on ESPN.
The show was originally scheduled for 5:30 p.m. on ESPN. However, because of the war in Iraq, there is now a contingency plan in place to move NCAA men’s basketball tournament games from CBS to ESPN, if CBS is in the midst of wall-to-wall war coverage.
It was earlier announced that, if that was the case, the college hockey selection show would bump to ESPN News at 6 p.m. The show was then moved to a 6 p.m. start time, regardless of the station it airs on.
