CBS and Turner have announced tipoff times for the first round. The Vanderbilt Commodores will meet the Northwestern Wildcats in the second game of the day in Salt Lake City, approximately 30 minutes after the conclusion of the first game between Gonzaga and South Dakota State.

The first game tips off at 1:00 PM CT, so the second game will tip at approximately 3:30 PM CT. Somewhat ironically, the other two teams from Tennessee in the tournament — East Tennessee State (vs. Florida) and Middle Tennessee State (vs. Minnesota) — will be playing in the same time slot as Vanderbilt.
The game will be televised on TBS, with the commentator team of Andrew Catalon and Steve Lappas on the game.
