Michigan vs Villanova: The 2018 NCAA Tournament is ready for its grand finale. It’s Michigan vs Villanova, Cinderella is slain, as are the Jayhawks. Now, a championship must be won. Michigan hasn’t won a title since 1989. Villanova’s last came only two years ago, in a 2016 classic title game.
Michigan vs Villanova meet Monday, April 2. The title game will tip off at 9:20 p.m. ET. You’re going to want to find a good seat for that night — and we at CBS and Turner have your viewing needs covered.
And we’re catering to your interests! While TBS shows the traditional national broadcast, TNT and truTV will offer special TeamCasts. They are built for hard-core fans interested in a localized broadcast just for them. So if you happen to be a Wolverine, Rambler, Wildcat or Jayhawk, you’re going to want to check out those channels.
