NEW YORK (AP) — VCU coach Shaka Smart and Kansas State's Frank Martin are serving as guest analysts for NCAA tournament coverage this week.

CBS and Turner Sports said Wednesday that Smart joined the Atlanta studio group for the regional semifinals and finals Thursday through Saturday on CBS and TBS. Smart's Rams were the darlings of last year's tournament, going from the First Four to the Final Four after barely making it in as a No. 11 seed. They lost to Indiana in this season's third round Saturday.

Reportedly offered the Illinois job, Smart said Wednesday he was staying at VCU.

Martin will work with the New York studio for the regional finals Saturday and Sunday on CBS. His Wildcats fell to top-seeded Syracuse last Saturday in the third round.
