“We are extremely pleased to have our semifinal and championship games on CBS, the home of the NCAA Men’s Basketball Championship and a long-time leader in televising NCAA Basketball.

This arrangement is another reflection of the growth and attractiveness of our men’s basketball. We thank both ESPN and CBS for working to facilitate this move, and we greatly value the relationship we have with these two college basketball television leaders.”
