The Thursday schedule in full

(Preamble: There's still some time left to join the Soft Pretzel Logic Challenge group in Philly.com's Hoops Hysteria contest. You know you want to.)

Since I have a few minutes to spare tonight, I figure I should knock this out now.

This version of the schedule includes time, venue, seed and broadcast crew information for all of Thursday's games, as well as the nationwide broadcast clearance map. This version should format better for your printer than the version on the old blog did.

Of note, some times have changed from the first version. In that one, I just added two and a half hours on to the start time of the first game of each doubleheader to figure out the start time of the second game. These times are official from CBS, but they are of course subject to change.

Games to be broadcast on KYW are in italics.

E = East
S = South
M = Midwest
W = West
