College Basketball TV Schedule

2017 NCAA Basketball Conference Tournament TV Schedule

It’s time once again for NCAA Basketball conference tournament time.  Since I have the U.S. College Sports Package, college basketball games are foisted upon me whether I like it or not.  It gives me gratuitous Rece Davis, shirtless Bill Walton, and small conference games in half-empty arenas.  Huzzah!

After last year’s success (I guess?) with posting the conference tournament schedule I figured I would do it again.  I will actually watch some of these games, I promise.  It will get me set up to fail yet again at any March Madness pool I enter (although last year I actually won…I know, crazy right?)

Alright, enough of that crap, here’s the schedule in all its glory!  Just a note, if you see the Bell and Rogers logos, it means it is in their specialty pack.  As far as I know, SEC Network games are on Rogers now so there are no issues there.

UPDATE #1: We already start with the updates and the tourneys haven’t even started.  The Big South Championship has been moved up to Noon on the 5th.  UPDATE #2: The MAAC Title game has been moved back to 9:00 pm on the 6th.  UPDATE #3: The Ivy League Semi-Finals still not appearing on the specialty pack guide.  UPDATE #6: The Horizon League first semi-final game is still not appearing on the guide.  It should because it’s on ESPNU so I will keep looking to see if, and when, it shows up.  UPDATE #7: It’s less than 24 hours away and still no Horizon League Semi-Final #1 on the guide.  It may still air but it’s unlikely to appear on the guide beforehand.  UPDATE #8: OK now the ACC tournament games tomorrow aren’t appearing either.  They were yesterday.  I don’t know anymore what’s going on here.

A few notes:

  • There will be no conference tournament games on MyTV (American Sports Network).
  • The Big XII Championship, ACC Championship, and SEC Championship are all slated to appear on TSN2.  As of right now they are also appearing in the specialty pack guide.  That should change in the next few days.  UPDATE #4: None of these games appear on the specialty pack guide now.  All just on TSN2 (with the ACC Championship also on MyTV).
  • I don’t remember if Selection Sunday was shown on TSN as well as CBS or not last season.  I can’t see anything that says that it is on TSN this year or not so for now, let’s go with it not appearing there.  UPDATE #5: Selection Sunday will only be on CBS.
  • Most of this is set in stone even if it is not appearing as such on the guides.

The NCAA Tournament First Four starts March 14th with the actual tournament (you know, the one you can do your bracket selections in) starting March 16th.  As far as I can tell, the First Four will only be available on TSN GO and not one of the TSN networks.

I am guessing my next post will be my next iteration of the mock draft.  Trying to determine if I should stick with one round for now or expand it to two rounds.  Either way, most of it will be wrong anyway.

Other than NFL Draft news, there is not a ton I will be reporting on over the next month or so.  I guess it is what it is.  Not happy about it but if we had football on all the time we would have never have the chance to miss it, right?  At least that’s what I tell myself.

  1. I see the Tuesday and Wednesday play in games are on TSN GO and not on the regular channels. Do you think these games will be shown on Bell’s SP?
