NC State Gets A Friday Afternoon Start

Chris Chambers

The start times and television information for this week's NCAA tournament have been announced, and for those of you hoping the Pack would play in an evening session, I'm afraid you're out of luck. This does, however, give you a good excuse to suddenly come down with a mysterious illness. Or the car broke down. Or there was a neighborhood-localized hurricane. (Okay that last one may be a difficult sell. But you never know until you try.)

NC State will face Temple at 1:40 p.m. ET on TBS this Friday, with Jim Nantz and Clark Kellogg on the call. Would have been nice to get Bill Raftery right off the bat, but it could be worse. The game time for a potential third-round game (it's still weird to consider the round of 32 the "third" round) hasn't been released.

And also, if you care...

Albany vs. Duke: 12:15 p.m. ET Friday [CBS]

Villanova vs. UNC: 7:20 p.m. ET Friday [TNT]
