Sports Illustrated reports that Wayne Larrivee and  Mike Kelley will call the game on tru TV for the Wisconsin 'teamcast.'  The game is scheduled to start at 7:49 p.m.  The main broadcast is on TBS.

NEW YORK (AP) -- Former college basketball stars Donny Marshall of UConn and Rex Chapman of Kentucky will be among the commentators for the team-specific broadcasts of Saturday's Final Four games.

Turner Sports and CBS are experimenting with airing two additional telecasts of both NCAA semifinals. Along with the main coverage on TBS, there will be separate versions on TNT and truTV with different announcing crews connected to each school.

For the early game, the Florida broadcast will be on TNT and UConn's on truTV. Kentucky will be on TNT and Wisconsin on truTV for the second semifinal.

The commentator teams were revealed Tuesday, with announcers from local and regional TV handling play-by-play duties.
