Microsoft and the NCAA have partnered to provide college basketball fans with the ultimate March Madness bracket experience, along with a new Windows 10 NCAA app.
Bing returns as an Official Corporate Partner of the NCAA and it will be the Official Bracketologist of the NCAA for the 2016 NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Championship. The bracket will be made available online after Selection Sunday (March 13) on Bing.com and NCAA.com.
Bing Predicts combines search data and social sentiment with access to more than a decade of the NCAA’s historical data as well as stats on team history, tournament performances, win-loss ratios and home versus away stats to help fans build a smarter bracket. This is the second year that Bing Predicts has been used during March Madness.
For fans who want to live stream the games and follow along with all the March Madness action throughout the tournament, the NCAA is also launching an all-new universal Windows 10 app. With Live Tiles, fans can pin their favorite teams to their Start menu, as well as live alerts, including upsets, overtimes, close games and live video streaming of the tournament’s games.
