Villanova's 9:30 p.m. game against Kentucky will be the primary game for 49 percent of the nation tonight, according to CBS. Check the broadcast map (below) to see whether your CBS affiliate will be going with the game.

Shaded in striped green, Eastern PA, Delaware, South Jersey, and Kentucky all get "constant" coverage, meaning the game will be shown the entire time no matter how close it is.

Most in the Northeast and Midwest will receive the 'Nova-Kentucky match-up as their primary game, but will be subject to cut-ins to other regional sites as in-game situations warrant.

Of course, viewers with DirecTV's NCAA basketball package will be able to choose which game of the four to watch. For cable and over-the-air viewers outside CBS's constant-coverage zones, a trek to a friend's house or a sports bar may be the best bet to ensure an uninterrupted Wildcats vs. Wildcats feed.

As a last resort, the Villanova game will be available for free as an online stream from CBS. If there are any problems with local "blackouts" on that site, try changing your zip code in the URL.
