The women’s NCAA Tournament tips off Friday with 16 first-round games.
All of the television coverage Friday and Saturday will take place on ESPN2.
Fans in Kentucky will be able to watch only one game in its entirety Friday. That will be Central Arkansas at Louisville, which is set to begin at about 2:30 p.m. at the KFC Yum Center.
The Saturday TV schedule is similar, with fans in Kentucky getting only the UNC-Asheville at UK game in its entirety. That contest tips off around 4 p.m. in Memorial Coliseum.
ESPN2 is offering a full weekend of women’s NCAA Tournament coverage, but that coverage is regionalized. Fans will see games in their home regions in their entirety, but the rest of the country will see “the most compelling action from multiple games,” which is also known as whip-around coverage.
