* any help on missing games or missing announcers appreciated

- ESPN picked up many Big 10 game feeds from Creative Sports

- the 2/23 Purdue-Indiana game featured the infamous Bob Knight chair toss

- the 2/27 matchup of #2 Georgetown and #1 St John's was the highest rated show ever on ESPN at the time (this was the so-called "sweater" game)

- ESPN aired a lot of games on tape delay (I'm missing some of the actual tip times, but inserted the ones I could find)

* any help on missing announcers appreciated

- In 1985, the tournament expanded to 64 teams.

- ESPN aired 5 live games on each first round day which, combined with the CBS games and the around the clock ESPN tape delay games, made for almost non-stop basketball for 55 consecutive hours from Thurs noon through early Sat evening.

- With 4 games at each first round site, NCAA Productions typically sent two announcer crews to each site to call two games each.

- Brent Musburger took over the top CBS pbp role (but worked in the studio on the first weekend).

- Pat Summerall (!!) made a return to basketball pbp (after having not worked any hoops games since the 1974 NBA playoffs).

- This was the first year that CBS aired a regional semifinal doubleheader, leaving ESPN with only one live game each of these nights.
