TORONTO – March 4th, 2013: Sports fans wont have to miss a dunk when the biggest college basketball tournament in the world gets underway this month, with leading free sports app theScore offering a host of great new features for iOS and Android devices.

The NCAA Men’s Division One Basketball Tournament begins on March 19th, with 68 teams battling it out in the epic single-elimination contest. And theScore will be tracking every second of action all the way to the championship final.

These latest updates complement theScore’s existing NCAA basketball offering, which includes coverage from games taking place now in the Big East, Big 10 and ACC and other major conferences. The new features, which go live in time for the tournament, include:

  • Bracket view, allowing fans to track their favourite teams’ routes to the final.
  • Upset Tracker alerts, notifying fans in real time when an upset is on the cards.
  • All Games alerts, meaning fans wont miss a single scoreline from the tournament.
  • Option to follow specific teams and set-up alerts to track scores, news and stats.

Jonathan Savage, VP of Products at theScore, Inc., said: “For us, the main NCAA action begins now. March is the biggest month for college basketball and theScore already has you covered with wall-to-wall NCAAB conference action right up to the main event. These new features will turbocharge our existing offering and make our app the ultimate destination for basketball fans.”

theScore is one of the most popular free sports apps in the world and used by more than three million people each month. It is available on Android, iPhone, BlackBerry, Windows Phone, iPad and iPad mini.
