Google Maps and March Madness


March Madness is well upon us as the men’s college basketball final four teams will be decided today. Google has created a events page just for the 2011 College Basketball Tournament. Google gives you all the tools you need to follow the tournament:

The college basketball tournament is here and you can explore the games, schools, and 3D venues on Google Maps. Download basketball apps from the Chrome Web Store, set up your bracket with Google Docs and follow Realtime updates on the tournament.

Engage in some friendly rivalry with our College Basketball Brackets template. View the 2011 NCAA tournament bracket. Create and manage your pool in this online spreadsheet. Automatic scoring for up to 10 people. Publish a bracket as a web page. Both men’s and women’s tournaments.

Google also gives you access to get more from your game experience from the Chrome Web Store to get the latest content and games for your browser.

My favorite part of the website is the Hotpot Challenge, which is a simple game of click and shoot a basket. See if you can beat my top score of 220. Warning, this game can be addicting.
