2011 NCAA Women's Basketball Tournament First Round TV Schedule, Regional Maps & Announcers

While the 2011 NCAA men's basketball tournament now can be viewed on its entirety on four different networks now, the women's tournament will still follow the old and traditional model of college basketball tournament coverage--four games at once, with the most compelling game being broadcast for the majority of the country (whiparound coverage, which means ESPN will switch up the channels based on the game they feel is most compelling to the viewer) in high definition. If fans want to watch their local regional team, they will be able to watch the entire game in standard definition.

ESPN has released their first round schedule and regional maps. Take a look at them after the jump. DMA stands for designated market area (HT to QCRamsFan of the 506). All games will be televised on ESPN2 and should be available online on ESPN3.
