How to follow along with March Madness and listen live with Alexa

The big tournament starts today and runs through April 2nd. Everyone has their brackets filled out and are ready for some upsets. We’ll get excited this time of year including the non-sports fan. But, don’t worry, none of us have watched any college basketball this year either. Really, unless you’re a die-hard fan of a specific school or an Alumni you don’t watch college basketball. Or in this case, listen to it. We want to show you how you can keep up with March Madness with your friend Alexa.

Stats & Scores

Alexa has a few different skills you can enable to ask for updates. The main one is the official March Madness skill by the NCAA.

March Madness by the NCAA features live score updates, game start times, as well as specific team information. This is a great skill to check in on the games, get score updates and figure out when your favorite school is playing.
