Get Your March Madness Fix

One of the greatest times of the year is upon us: March Madness.  The NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament is like a second Christmas for basketball fans or first for some I guess.

Over the last couple of years, it's become easier for fans to get their March Madness fix online as March Madness on Demand allows fans to watch tournament games online.  It's not so good for work productivity, but great if you don't want to miss any of the action.

This year a new website called NCAA Vault has added a sense of history to the March Madness online experience.  It features full games and highlights from every Sweet 16 game this decade.  Better yet you can sort by teams, players, and games.

There's even more specific categories such as dunks, great shots, great blocks, great plays, and great finishes which serve as helpful reminders of exceptional moments you may have forgotten.  If you're really ambitious you can search and navigate within full games for specific moments then create a link of that moment to a social media or blogs.

For instance I can link to Villanova's Scottie Reynolds hitting the shot that knocked Pittsburgh out last year.

Overall it's a pretty awesome website, and it's especially great if you want to rub an agonizing defeat in your friend's face by repeatedly linking to a clip of that defeat.
