2022 March Madness TV schedule: How to watch the NCAA Tournament, tipoff times, TV announcers


The first weekend of the 2022 men’s NCAA Tournament is just about over, and soon the Sweet 16 will be underway. The Thursday/Saturday games were so good, Sunday’s crop has plenty of work to make up for it. 

Below, you’ll find when the games are, where the games are, what channel the games are on and who is calling said games. The highlight of Sunday, from a matchup standpoint, will be Duke-Michigan State on CBS at 5:15 p.m. ET from Greenville, South Carolina. But you just know we’ll get a couple of great ones. Reminder: This story will continually – and quickly – update every time the TV schedule refreshes for the men’s NCAA Tournament.

The field is now at 24 teams. Eight more games before we get to 16. 

Throughout March Madness we will update the information below every single time the NCAA Tournament schedule is adjusted. Games will be airing on CBS, TNT, TBS and truTV — and as always, you can also watch every game in the tourney via March Madness Live.

All times Eastern.
