Sweet 16: How to watch, who to love/hate

James Snook-USA TODAY Sports

The unfortunate truth for a lot of us is that, even though Xavier is eliminated, we will be watching basketball this weekend. With two weeks until baseball and the dribble for 20 seconds boredom of the NBA the only alternatives, the Sweet 16 is still going to draw the attention of those of us who want some entertainment this evening. The games have now moved off tv channels I only remember once a year and onto CBS and TBS. Jim Nantz is once again weighed down by Bill Raftery, but here are that and the rest of the announcer pairings and schedule for your enjoyment.
