'Team Casts' to air during NCAA title game for 1st time

NEW YORK (AP) ''Team Casts'' will air during college basketball's national championship game for the first time this season.

Turner Sports introduced the team-centric alternate telecasts two years ago when the semifinals shifted to TBS. They were not used for the NCAA title games on CBS.

But TBS is showing the entire Final Four this season under Turner's joint deal with CBS. Network executives announced Tuesday that ''Team Casts'' will again air on TNT and truTV, with separate announcing crews calling the games from the perspective of each school.
