March Madness, Google-Style

The 2011 NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Championship is set to tip off Tuesday night, and while Google Earth may not be able to bring users 3D images from inside the arenas — CBS and its cable partners might be slightly miffed — the outside of the 14 tournament arenas is available via the virtual tour below.

Google also created a special tournament page enabling users to track the schedule, explore campuses via Street View, watch the actual games via NCAA March Madness on Demand, create brackets, read Google News coverage, and download apps from the Chrome Web Store.
