Syracuse Basketball: Orange Tipoff Time vs. Dayton Set for 12:15 p.m. ET on Friday

And now we know WHEN we face the Flyers...

Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

You already knew the 10th-seeded Syracuse Orange (19-13) were facing the 7th-seeded Dayton Flyers (25-7) in the first round of the NCAA Tournament. Now, we know when.

According to a release from CBS, SU and Dayton start at 12:15 p.m. ET in St. Louis this Friday, March 18. The game will air on your local CBS affiliate, so no aimless searching for TruTV or another channel you're not sure you have. Once the Flyers and Orange wrap up, they'll cede the floor to Michigan State and Middle Tennessee. The winner of the first game will face the winner of the latter matchup on Sunday at a time TBD.

Brian Anderson, Steve Smith and Dana Jacobson are your announcing crew for the matchup. I have no recollection of the announcing crew for the 2014 game against Dayton because I strive to black out that part of my memory every day. But pray it's not the same group we saw then.

We'll be covering everything you'll need to know about the game in the lead-up, and will of course be here (yes, even on the West Coast) watching along come Friday morning/afternoon.
