NCAA to Televise Regional Games Again

The NCAA says it will televise all eight Division I tournament regional games once again this season, after not doing so last year because of budgetary reasons.

The West Regional is scheduled for March 22-23 in Ann Arbor, Mich., with game times of 4 and 7:30 p.m. ET. The East Regional will be in Worcester, Mass. on March 23-24, with game times of noon and 3:30 p.m. ET.

Games will be produced by the NCAA, and available to be picked up by whatever local station and/or regional sports network that wants it. No word yet on whether the games will be available on mini-dish satellite systems, such as DirecTV, as has been done in the past on a pay-per-view basis.

Once again, the Frozen Four will be televised by ESPN and ESPN2 on April 4 and 6 from St. Paul, Minn.
