Weekend Watchdog - 64...32...16

Is your bracket shredded yet? If not, wait until the end of the day.
Friday at noon, the NCAA tournament tips off on CBS. The hard-working people at this website are trying to map all coverage of the first three rounds for wherever you are in the nation, although it's easy for Fishersville - West Virginia, Pittsburgh, Duke and Maryland will be Friday's highlight games.
The first round, coverage is on from noon until 5 p.m., and resumes at 7 p.m.
Saturday, coverage starts at 1 p.m. and goes through the conclusion of the last two games around 10:30 p.m. Sunday, it's noon to 7 p.m. and we'll be down to the Sweet 16.
Remember, there's also the NIT hanging around. ESPN2 shows the second-round matchup between Memphis and Mississippi Friday at 6:30 p.m., and ESPN has Mississippi State and North Carolina Saturday at noon.
If 65 teams in the men's tournament isn't enough, there are 64 teams to keep track of in the women's bracket. ESPN2 has first round coverage Saturday starting at noon and 8 p.m.
Sunday, ESPN2 has games at noon, 7 p.m. and 9:30 p.m., while ESPN covers the 2:30 p.m. slot that includes James Madison's game with Temple in Norfolk. The Virginia women play at 7:21 p.m. against Green Bay.
For your NBA doubleheader, ESPN waits until Sunday night. San Antonio visits Atlanta at 8 p.m., followed by Portland at Phoenix.
The Wizards are on the West Coast, facing Portland Friday and the Lakers Sunday at 10:30 p.m. on Comcast.
NBC shows the Rangers at Bruins Sunday afternoon. The Capitals are on the road also this weekend, visiting Tampa Bay Saturday on Comcast.
The PGA tour is on NBC this weekend, with the Transitions Championship starting at 3 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
NASCAR is back after a week off, with the Food City 500 in Bristol Sunday at 1 p.m. on FOX. The Nationwide race is Saturday on ABC (2 p.m.), but Danica Patrick isn't in the field. What will they talk about?
Comcast offers ACC college baseball Saturday, with Boston College visiting Virginia at 1 p.m.
MASN shows college lacrosse Saturday afternoon, with Air Force facing Loyola.
For tennis, the BNP Paribas Open finals will be on Comcast Sunday at 3 p.m.
