Google Now updated with NCAA basketball support

With March Madness right around the corner, excitement surrounding NCAA basketball is ramping up. Google is taking advantage of the timing, and has released as update to Google Now that enables users to manually add NCAA basketball teams to the sports card.

Before the update, the appearance of select NCAA teams was sporadic at best. Now, fans will be auto-updated with information on how their team is doing as the action is going down. Right now, only mens Division I basketball is supported, but we wouldn’t be surprised to see that expanded as time goes on.

To add your favorite team, simply open Google Now, head to the settings, tap sports, and search for your favorite team. Let us know who you added in the comments below. I’m eagerly awaiting a card to pop up saying Michigan State University is dominating the court. Go green!

    This is perfect, just what I need. Go Gophers, though they haven’t been playing well. Gotta finish strong, though.

    It’s about time, don’t understand why it takes these apps to include college sports for updates. Score Mobile (now theScore) didn’t allow for this until recently either.
