Who's calling your game?

Editor's note: March Madness is too much for any one person to handle, so I'm adding help. The guys behind Ballin' Is a Habit, Rob Dauster and Troy Machir, will be contributing throughout March and into the Final Four, both with content from their Web site and original articles for us. This post originally appeared at BIAH.

Remember this?

Recognize the man on the call? Gus Johnson? Well, he will be calling the Syracuse-Vermont first round game once again, this time paired with Len Elmore. Gus and Len together are a great combo, as Elmore's more laid back style blends perfectly with the energetic Gus Jeezy.

What follows is the rest of the CBS announcing pairs for the NCAA tournament and the first-round games that they will be calling.
