It’s that time of the year again: The office pools are going, the sports bars are full, and you’re digging out the colors of your alma mater. Yes, March Madness is already in full swing.
While not all of our engineers are huge basketball fans, we are huge fans of our Instant Answers. This is a feature that gives … well, an Instant Answer to a query that is intended to discover a specific piece of information. With so many game times and scores to keep track of, we couldn’t think of a better way to make you happy than to deliver some Instant Answers on college hoops, just in time for the Sweet 16. Simply type in “NCAA tournament”, “March Madness”, or “college basketball” and you will get the latest and greatest information on the tournament right on the search page.
You can even type in your favorite team’s name to get the team’s record and latest results. Here’s an example for the Duke Blue Devils.
Enjoy and let us know what other Instant Answers you would like to see in the future!
