March Madness at Bleacher Report: No reason to leave the site
Even if college basketball isn’t your game, you’ve probably noticed that Bleacher Report is sorta not really ignoring this whole March Madness thing.
What B/R always tries to do is create the best and most engaging online sports experience for fans, and you can see that in action with the NCAA Tournament coverage.
From expert picks for every game to the Bracket Challenge Game to the printable bracket to the live bracket to all the great daily coverage that goes on all year—just to name a few things—B/R is going to spend the next three weeks trying to give fans no reason to ever leave the site.
For the first time, Bleacher Report has access to official NCAA videos, which will live in a video hub on B/R. Videos will include game recaps, highlights, press conferences, the Play of the Day and a whole lot more. And the BR video team is creating previews and breakdowns for every game.
Here are some of the top original content series to look for during this first week of the tournament.
- Sleeper Series: In-depth profiles of what will make specific underrated teams dangerous in the tournament. Here’s an example: Why Saint Louis Is a Final Four Darkhorse.
