You can watch your Kansas Jayhawks during NCAA March Madness a whole different way this year.
NCAA Digital, managed by Turner Sports, today launched the first NCAA® March Madness® YouTube Channel, which will be a new level of coverage for viewers around the world.
Turner Sports released an announcement today.
“The new channel – youtube.com/marchmadness – will feature real-time highlights and video recaps, from all 67 games of this year’s tournament. Additional content will include live press conferences, game previews and analysis, and daily news and notes from the tournament airing across TBS, CBS, TNT and truTV.
The NCAA March Madness YouTube Channel launches with archival video clips from the best games and moments of the 2014 Tournament, including the last second shot by Ohio State’s Aaron Craft that fell short against Dayton; buzzer beaters from Kentucky’s Aaron Harrison; Mercer’s unimaginable upset win over Duke; and UConn’s dramatic run to the National Championship.”
Some additional content on the channel will hopefully include some Jayhawk highlights.
Dunk of the Day presented by Oreo – A daily video clip highlighting the top dunk of each day of tournament play.
Naismith Trophy presented by AT&T – A highlight reel featuring the best moments from this year’s 2015 Naismith College Player of the Year winner.
Solve of the Day presented by UPS – A feature that will identify potential upsets and pinpoint what this year’s tournament favorites will need to do to avoid a shocking loss.
Starting Lineup presented by Reese’s – A daily update that will deliver the five things fans need to know about the day’s action.
Every year it seems the coverage of the tournament is expanded, and 2015 is apparently no different. This will provide a unique way to capture each day’s highlights throughout the tournament.
The Jayhawks hope to provide plenty of them, as they are currently projected as a number two seed in the South Region by ESPN Bracketologist Joe Lunardi.
A teaser has been released for the site, that chronicles the high(low)lights of last year’s tournament, complete with cheers, tears, and a seven seed that to this day is still a surprising champion.
The Jayhawks will finish out the regular season this Saturday with a road game at Oklahoma, after hosting West Virginia Tuesday.
The Big 12 Conference Tournament at the Sprint Center in Kansas City will run from March 11-14.
The NCAA Tournament begins with the First (or play-in) Round March 17-18 at UD Arena in Dayton Ohio. The second and third rounds (traditional first and second rounds), will be March 19-21.
