2016 National Championship Game, Villanova vs. North Carolina tip time, TV schedule, commentators and more

One more game, and one more mountain to climb. For all the marbles in Houston.

The National Championship will be on the line in Houston, Texas Monday night.

In one corner, the Villanova Wildcats stand as the Big East regular season champions, fresh off a rousing defeat of the Oklahoma Sooners.

In the other corner, the North Carolina Tar Heels come off a thumping of the Syracuse Orange.

Only one can be crowned the champ.

How to watch, listen or stream

Game Time: 9:19 p.m. ET

TV: Superstation TBS. It's Monday, so there won't be any broadcasts of WCW Thunder. If you go over to TNT thinking you'll see WCW Monday Nitro, I hate to tell you this, but you'll instead have to have the misfortune of listening to the UNC Team Stream featuring Wes Durham, Brendan Haywood and Dwayne Ballen. Go over to truTV instead if you're going to do that and listen to longtime Puppy Bowl announcer Scott Graham, former Atlanta Falcons great Brian Finneran and reporter Kacie McDonnell, whom I will bestow the superlative of "tremendous" on.

But seriously folks, the game is on TBS. You won't be able to find it on CBS. Some show that appeals to the baby boomers will probably be on there. TBS. TBS! Superstation TBS is the move. You can listen to Jim Nantz, Grant Hill, and Bill Raftery with Tracy Wolfson roving the sidelines. That's a helluva crew for a helluva game.

Radio: Games will be broadcasted on Westwood One. Check your local listings. Here's a handy link.

Stream: March Madness Live is your app and you should already know that by now. It's the National Championship Game. You've probably seen the Kenny Smith commercial by now. It's not as agitating as the University of Phoenix one.

A cool, neat table should follow soon.
