NCAA Championship Game 2011 Time, Schedule, TV Announcers And More

The 2011 NCAA Championship game pits No. 8 seed Butler against No. 3 seed UConn in a battle of one "Cinderella" who went to the title game last season against a power-conference school that was picked to finish 10th in the Big East this season. It's a matchup of contrasts, with the rock-solid play of Matt Howard and Shelvin Mack going up against the breathtaking play of Kemba Walker.

The game is scheduled to tip off at 9:23 p.m. ET, with CBS' coverage of the event beginning at 9 p.m. Jim Nantz will be the lead announcer, with Clark Kellogg and Steve Kerr providing analysis. Tracy Wolfson will be the game's sideline reporter. The game will take place at Reliant Stadium in Houston, which is traditionally the home of the Houston Texans.

Connecticut is favored to win, but not by as much as one would think. The line began at four points, but it is now at three points. Clearly, Butler is not as much an underdog as it was last season against Duke.
