Happy Tuesday, ‘Nova Nation! Really cool piece of news broke yesterday about the NCAA’s plan for the NCAA Tournament. Their ‘March Madness Live’ app typically offers a stream of every game in the early rounds, but they’re upping the ante this year.

The organization will produce a show that features Red Zone-like whiparound coverage from the studio. This format is wildly popular in the NFL - and on NBC’s EPL coverage as well - so not a surprise that the NCAA, after all the money, would give it a go too.

And now, the “news.”
