Are the games next weekend usually on ESPN/ESPN2?

Of the 8 first-round games, 4 are live on ESPNU: both of Friday's Albany games (3:00 & 6:30), plus the 9:00 Friday St. Paul game and the 4:00 Saturday Fort Wayne game. The other 4 are on "ESPN Syndication," which means that a local station could pick it up. Those 4 are also on ESPN 360, but will be on ESPNU on a tape delay basis only.

All 4 of the Quarterfinal games are on ESPNU:
Albany, 6:30 Saturday
St Paul, 9:00 Saturday
Worcester, 5:30 Sunday
Fort Wayne, 8:00 Sunday

that's a step backwards to the 2008 coverage plan. last year with all games live was much nicer, but i guess the experiment failed. although i don't see how this saves ESPN any money...the ad dollars for whatever's on U or Classic at that time are the same (and of roughly SlapChop quality), and they're sending out production/commentary crews to all the sites anyway.

ESPNU-Tape Delay (Sat. 3/27 - 11:30 PM) / ESPN Syndication-Live / ESPN360-Live

So it's possible a Comcast local or FSD could pick it up for live syndication.
