The 2011 NCAA Tournament schedule is now out, and we now know when all the games in the Washington D.C. regional will be played. The eight teams will play on Thursday and Saturday, with Tim Brando and Mike Gminski having the call for all the games.
Here is a complete schedule for the eight teams in Washington D.C. All times are Eastern Standard Time.
Thursday, March 17
No. 8 Butler vs. No. 9 Old Dominion, 12:40 p.m., TruTV: The defending NCAA runner-ups in Butler take on one of the top mid-major teams in the country in Old Dominion. It should be an outstanding game, for all of those who get TruTV.
No. 1 Pittsburgh vs. No. 16 UNC-Asheville or Arkansas-Little Rock, 30 minutes after, TruTV: The top-seeded Panthers will begin their NCAA Tournament run against the winner of the UNC-Asheville/Arkansas Little-Rock on Tuesday.
No. 3 Connecticut vs. No. 14 Bucknell, 7:20, TNT: Kemba Walker and the Huskies look to follow up their Big East Tournament title with a win over a tough Bucknell team. The last time Bucknell was a No. 14 seed, it upset Kansas in 2005.
No. 6 Cincinnati vs. No. 11 Missouri, 30 minutes after, TNT: The Bearcats take on a Missouri team that was hot early, but struggled to finish the season.
