NCAA Tournament 2015 schedule: Game times and TV info for the 1st 2 rounds

New, 11 comments

This will be handy in scheduling those sick days this week.

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

As a semi-recent grad, it wasn't long ago that I was spending the first week of the NCAA Tourney at some beach on spring break. That meant I could kick back and watch basketball all day while getting sloshed on Natty Light and watching smoking hot girls run around in bikinis (except for sophomore year in PCB, when my fraternity brother spilled beer on the TV five minutes into the trip. Smoke literally came out of the set and we couldn't watch the Tourney all week).

I didn't really need to know the schedule back in college because I was watching the games all day anyway. But now that I'm in the workforce, I have to, like, work -- which means knowing the schedule becomes paramount. When do I need to sneak out of that meeting to watch the 5-12 matchup online? How long should I postpone that presentation so I can keep up with the 1-seed on gametracker? Which days do I need to schedule having the flu? (Boss, if you read this blog, LOL JK I'll be working hard all month!)

If you're like me and have a stupid job that gets in the way of basketball, this schedule will be your Bible for the next week. Here are the first two rounds, with TV info included.
