(Newser) – Sports fans will get a chance to watch the NCAA Final Four in 3D as CBS attempts to gauge interest in the extra dimension. It won't be 3D TV—fans must go to movie theaters to view a live broadcast of the games. About 100 theaters nationwide are expected to participate. CBS Sports head Sean McManus says he has "no prediction about how prevalent 3D" will become in sports broadcasting.

"This is more of an experiment than anything else," McManus tells USA Today. This year's Final Four will see another first: Jennifer Hudson will perform "One Shining Moment," which traditionally plays over a montage of tournament action after the title game.
