ESPN Player will bring basketball fans across the UK, Europe and the Middle East live and on-demand coverage of the 2014/15 NCAA College Basketball season online, via iPad and on Samsung and LG Smart TVs.
ESPN Player will showcase the competition’s biggest games, and has exclusive online rights to broadcast the NCAA Tournament, also known as March Madness®. With 30 or more games each week during the regular season and coverage of Championship Week, ESPN Player lets fans watch live and on-demand, so that they don’t miss any of the key NCAA Basketball action this season.
The players in college action this year will be hoping to follow in the footsteps of last year’s stars, such Andrew Wiggins and Jabari Parker, who entered the NBA as top draft picks. ESPN’s NBA DraftTracker is currently topped by Duke center Jahlil Okafor, while Kentucky’s Karl-Anthony Towns and Kansas’s Kelly Oubre are also projected top five picks.
Last season saw the Connecticut Huskies triumph, winning their fourth NCAA Tournament title. Losing finalists, the Kentucky Wildcats, are early season favourites this year, while teams such as Arizona, Kansas and Wisconsin are in ESPN’s pre-season Top 25 teams for 2014-15 and are expected to be in the hunt as well.
Early schedule highlights include the match-up between Kansas and Kentucky on Tuesday November 18th, the first of an extensive range of games on ESPN Player featuring top college programs throughout the season. To see the complete schedule, visit ESPN Player’s College Basketball Schedule.
ESPN’s College Pass on ESPN Player gives American collegiate sports fans access to all of the NCAA basketball coverage, as well as NCAA football, lacrosse, baseball, ice hockey and more, making ESPN Player the best choice for fans to fill their college sports needs. The broadband service also allows users to pause and rewind on-demand events, allowing them to scroll to any part of the game they might have missed, review great plays with the 10-second rewind button, or return to the start of the game with a single click.
