The Madness Moves

I was wondering why the Score wasn't really promoting any coverage of "March Madness" during its college basketball coverage. I now know why...

TSN announced today it will have live coverage of this year’s NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Championship, commonly referred to as NCAA® MARCH MADNESS®. Complete coverage of the 2011 tournament is available to Canadian fans on TSN and TSN2 beginning Thursday, March 17 at 11:30 a.m. ET.

“It’s hard to find an event with as much drama and excitement as NCAA® MARCH MADNESS®,” said Stewart Johnston, President, TSN. “We are thrilled to add this marquee property to the TSN and TSN2 schedules. Bringing the NCAA tournament to TSN is another example of our commitment to giving Canadians the biggest events in sports.”

TSN will produce an original studio show for pre- and post-game analysis, along with live look-ins to various games.

All games on TSN and TSN2 will be broadcast nationally in High Definition.

This agreement is the latest in a series of recently announced major acquisitions for TSN.

If this keeps up, Renee Paquette and wrestling will be the only thing worth watching on the Score.

Who gives a crap. It's American college basketball! Your life is extremely boring if that's an issue.

One of the best sporting events on the calendar. The first two days of this tournament are without a doubt two of the best days going. I can't see the coverage from TSN differing from the Score though.
