NCAA tournament 2011: TV schedule details released

By Matt Bonesteel

Richard Deitsch of Sports Illustrated has the details of the television schedule for the NCAA tournament. As you know, starting this year the tournament will be shown on four channels -- CBS, TNT, TBS and truTV (formerly Court TV) -- and every game will be televised by one of those channels, meaning CBS won't be jumping around from game to game.

According to Deitsch, this is how the schedule will look:
