ESPN will provide extensive on-site coverage of the NCAA Division I Men's Basketball Championship Final Four - including analysis, news, reports and interviews across multiple platforms - from Fort Worth's Sundance Square, located near the site of the semifinals and championship at Cowboys Stadium, from Thursday, April 3, to Monday, April 7. ESPN will also cover the final four team practices and press conferences from the venue on Friday, April 4. Highlights:

College GameDay host and game commentator Rece Davis will lead ESPN's studio coverage from Fort Worth. He will be joined by anchor John Anderson and analysts Jay Bilas, Dan Dakich, Seth Greenberg, Digger Phelps, Dick Vitale and Jay Williams, and reporters Jeannine Edwards and Andy Katz.

In addition to extensive studio coverage across ESPN's domestic platforms, ESPN International will televise the semifinals (Saturday, April 5, beginning at 6 p.m.) and championship (Monday, April 7, at 9 p.m.) with Dan Shulman, Bilas and Vitale on the call.

SportsCenter

Davis and SportsCenter anchor Anderson will share hosting duties. Vitale, Bilas, Phelps, Greenberg and Williams will provide analysis. ESPN.com senior writer Katz and reporter Edwards will provide news and updates from Fort Worth.

ESPN will exclusively announce the winner of the 2014 John R. Wooden Award Presented by Wendy's Men's Player of the Year on the noon edition of SportsCenter Friday, April 4. The winning player will be unveiled from ESPN's set in Fort Worth's Sundance Square at approximately 12:30 p.m.

College GameDay

ESPN and ESPNU will combine to televise three College GameDay shows from two different sets in Fort Worth's Sundance Square.

ESPN will offer two day-of-game editions for the semifinals and championship: a two-and-a-half hour show on Saturday, April 5, at 3:30 p.m. previewing the National Semifinal matchups and a two-hour Championship preview Monday, April 7, at 7 p.m. Davis will host with Bilas, Phelps and Williams on one set while Anderson will anchor from the second with Dakich and Greenberg. Katz and Edwards will provide reports.

Saturday's show will include feature segments by Gene Wojciechowski and Chris Connelly. Wojciechowski will chronicle Georgetown's 1984 NCAA championship run and how Patrick Ewing battled two premier big men - Kentucky's Sam Bowie and Houston's Akeem Olajuwon - to lead the Hoyas' redemption after a title slipped away in 1982. Connelly will examine the celebrations, heartbreak, and superstitions performed by players on the bench during games, including locking arms, air guitars, all-at-once collapses and how one Division III program raised the bar for sideline antics.
