ESPNPlayer.com will bring UK and European viewers live and on-demand coverage of the 2015 NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament (aka March Madness).
Available on Mac, PC, iPad and through Samsung and LG smart TVs, ESPN Player’s coverage starts immediately and runs through five rounds to the National Championship game on April 6th.
There is a strong British contingent in this year’s tournament – UK-native Gabriel Olaseni is a key part of the University of Iowa Hawkeyes team which has been seeded seventh in the tournament. His performances off the bench this season have seen him named the Big Ten’s Sixth Man of the Year. In addition, guard Luke Nelson, originally from Worthing, helped guide UC Irvine to their first ever NCAA Tournament with a win in the Big West Championship over Hawai’i. Iowa will face Davidson, while UC Irvine take on powerhouse Louisville, three-time NCAA Tournament champions – both games will be available live on ESPN Player.
