Basketball PlayerMarch Madness and Technology

It is March and if you follow sports to any degree, you will most likely be familiar with March Madness. As always, sixty-four NCAA basketball teams will battle to call themselves the nation’s best college team. Since this is one of the biggest sporting events of the year, it is no wonder why sports enthusiasts as well as those just checking up on their Alma Mater want to keep a close eye on the tournament.


If you are at work during the tournament’s opening rounds, staying in the know can be tough. You could be missing out if you are not using the latest technology.


Current technology has made following your team or conference much easier. Websites are still a great way to get up to the minute information. Sites such as CBS, ESPN, and NBC are dedicated to delivering the most up-to-the-minute stats and information.


Social media can help too. If you have a Facebook account, you can fill out brackets and check scores with an app by CBS Sports. Twitter can deliver tweets if you follow a particular team or even the whole tournament.


Mobile devices have revolutionized how information is brought to us. The NCAA March Madness Live app allows you to check game schedules, fill out brackets, and receive up to the minute game alerts. This app is free on both iTunes as well as Google Play. If you wish, you can pay to stream the games live to your mobile device.


If you wish to stay up to date with the tournament these are just a few options available to you. Start with these and see where they take you.
