usatsi 20244677 1

The second round of the 2024 NCAA Tournament wraps up with Sunday action spanning from noon until midnight. With berths to the Sweet 16 on the line, there is an ever-heightened sense of urgency between traditional favorites and Cinderellas alike. Starting things off is No. 10 Colorado vs. No. 2 Marquette in the South Regional at 12:10 p.m. on CBS, but three No. 1 seeds — Purdue, UConn and Houston — will take center stage throughout the day. 

One major change this year: A new voice of the Final Four. Veteran ace announcer Ian Eagle steps in as the lead play-by-play announcer, replacing the legend, Jim Nantz, who stepped away in 2023. Eagle will be alongside mainstays Bill Raftery, Grant Hill and reporter Tracy Wolfson on the top announcing team. A longtime staple of NCAA Tournament coverage, Eagle was not alone as someone stepping into a new role on the team. Former Purdue star Robbie Hummel is calling his first NCAA Tournament broadcast through the second round.

CBS and TBS lead the way televising 21 games apiece during the NCAA Tournament, while truTV and TNT are carrying 13 and 12, respectively. In addition to the March Madness Live app, where you can watch every game, Paramount+ subscribers will be able to watch all the games televised by CBS, while subscribers to Max’s B/R Sports Add-On can catch the remainder of the games.

From the Selection Show all the way until the playing of “One Shining Moment” after a champion is crowned, CBS Sports and TNT Sports will be bringing you the magic.

Let’s take a look at the 2024 March Madness announcing teams as well as the remaining schedule for the 2024 NCAA Tournament.
