Championship Trophy Presentations & ESPN3 Surround

ESPN3 will provide extra Championship Week coverage with the trophy presentation of all 22 conference championships on an ESPN network and special "ESPN3 Surround" applications on the ACC, American, Big 12 and SEC title games. The newest second-screen initiative, which provides an alternative viewing experience to the traditional telecast with different camera angles and audio, debuted with applications around ESPN's telecasts of Duke at North Carolina, Syracuse at Duke and Kansas at Oklahoma State.

The ESPN3 Surround productions of the tournament games will be similar to the Syracuse at Duke and Kansas at Oklahoma State matchups, offering multiple cameras and the natural sound inside the arena.

Follow the Action on Buzzer Beater & WatchESPN

ESPN Buzzer Beater will provide live cut-ins, highlights and up-to-the-minute commentary from numerous Championship Week games from across the ESPN networks on Thursday, March 13, and Friday, March 14, from noon to 11 p.m.

Every Championship Week game on ESPN, ESPN2, ESPNU and ESPN3 will also be available via WatchESPN, accessible online at WatchESPN.com, on smartphones and tablets via the WatchESPN app, through ESPN on Xbox LIVE to Gold members and on Apple TV to fans who receive their video subscription from an affiliated provider.

Week Concludes with Extensive Day-Long Coverage

The final day of Championship Week - Selection Sunday, March 16 - will begin at noon with College Basketball Live on ESPN, followed by the ACC Championship (on ESPN) and Sun Belt Championship (on ESPN2), both at 1 p.m. Game action will conclude with ESPN's telecast of the SEC Championship at 3:15 p.m. Extensive coverage of the men's NCAA Championship selection will include coverage of the brackets as they are announced on SportsCenter following the conclusion of the SEC Championship, a two-hour Bracketology Presented by Staples at 7 p.m. on ESPN and another two-hour Bracketology Presented by Staples at 9 p.m. on ESPN2. ESPNU will televise the eighth annual NIT Selection Show at 8:30 p.m. and a two-hour Tournament Countdown edition of The Experts at 9 p.m.

Debut of 30 for 30 Documentary Requiem for The BIG EAST Premieres on Selection Sunday

ESPN Films' 30 for 30 documentary Requiem For The BIG EAST will premiere on Sunday, March 16, at 9 p.m. after Bracketology on ESPN. The film, directed by Peabody Award-winning filmmaker Ezra Edelman, explores the meteoric ascension of the BIG EAST Conference and how it became the most successful college basketball sports league in America - but later found itself fighting for survival in a new era. The film is told primarily through the lens of famed BIG EAST coaches such as Jim Boeheim, Lou Carnesecca, Rick Pitino and John Thompson, former BIG EAST commissioner Mike Tranghese, and some of its most iconic players like Patrick Ewing, Chris Mullin and Ed Pinckney. It chronicles the rivalries and successes that led many of them to become household names.

In addition, writers will file stories from several tournament sites, including the American, ACC, Big 12, Big East, Big Ten, Missouri Valley and SEC.
