The first-round primary games for KCBS (Channel 2) have been selected. USC plays Kansas State at 4:10 p.m. Thursday and UCLA plays Mississippi Valley State at 6:40 p.m. Thursday.
That leaves the Cal State Fullerton-Wisconsin game -- which will be played at almost the same time as the UCLA game -- to go to Orange County station KDOC (Channel 56), which appears on Channel 29 on Time Warner cable systems in Ventura County.
CBS always tries to schedule times to enable regional teams to be shown in their own markets, but Channel 2 said no request was received by Cal State Fullerton. Normally, such a game would have been put on KCAL (Channel 9), which is also owned by CBS, but Channel 9 will be carrying a Lakers game on Thursday night. So an arrangement was worked out with KDOC.
On radio, KLAC (570 AM), which usually carries UCLA games, will also be carrying the Lakers on Thursday, so the game will shift to KTLK (1150 AM). KSPN (710 AM), which is the flagship station for USC, will broadcast the Trojans game. KSPN is also airing other tournament action from the Westwood One network.
