KXJB is the local affiliate to CBS, which carries the NCAA basketball finals.

DirecTV dropped KXJB from its lineup on Jan.8. The two sides weren't able to agree on what DirecTV should pay to carry the feed.

KXJB General Manager, Charlie Johnson, said the sides remain in talks and he's hopeful something can be worked out before Friday's game.

If an agreement is not reached, the game will be available online for free at CBSSports.com. CBS is streaming every NCAA tournament game, with on-demand coverage available several hours after the game.
