First 68 became 64.  Then 64 became 32.  And now we have our final 16 teams competing for the 2015 NCAA Tournament title.  The Round of 32 brought more upsets, our first top seed crashing out, and plenty of intriguing storylines.  Oh, and there’s still unbeaten Kentucky.  Here’s your Sweet 16 announcing schedule including dates/times/announcers for Thursday and Friday.  First, the announcing assignments by region…
