Google Now Officially Supports Favorite College Basketball Teams

google now college basketball

A couple of weeks ago, a handful of readers noticed that Google Now was starting to display scores for their favorite college basketball teams. While awesome, without an announcement from Google or the ability to manual add teams as you did in other sports, it seemed like something half-baked or that Google had not yet finished implementing. As of today, it appears to be fully added to Google Now. 

If you cruise into Google Now, go into Settings>Google Now>Sports and tapp the “Add team…” option, you can type in your favorite college basketball programs. The score card will then show up when they have games to play.

For whatever reason, college football is not yet supported, however, we have a few months to go before we need to worry about that. I’d imagine by then, that Google will have put in the work to make Now your sports powerhouse. After all, Google I/O is between now and then.

    I did a search for “march madness” and it popped up a card with the dates on it. Hopefully that means when the time comes it will give me all the march madness scores as I certainly don’t want to add all the teams.

    The display the wrong logos for some NHL teams, like the Buffalo Sabres are shown with their old logo.

    Kaylee. I agree that Christopher`s st0ry is surprising, last week I bought a brand new Chrysler after having made $9482 recently and just over ten-grand this past munth. with-out a doubt this is the most comfortable work Ive ever had. I started this nine months/ago and practically straight away startad making at least $77… p/h. I follow the details hereewe…. http://www.youtube.com.qr.net/j8Kn

  • Kellex, I met you at the Kalispell, MT Best Buy a few years back when I worked at Best Buy. You purchased a router from me. You had a “Droid-Life” shirt on and I was stoked and asked where you bought the shirt. You told me you owned DL but I didn’t believe you until we pulled it up on my phone. Followed DL before, followed DL ever sense!… good to see you sporting you’re local college teams! GO GRIZ!

    It’s not working on mine so far. I even tried typing in Montana like the screenshot and nothing comes up.

  • Jeffrey Leffel

    Go Tigers!!!

  • Andrew Vanderwall

    Go Braves!

    I assume they’ll add College Football when that season rolls around….

  • jaw_shoe_uh

    Awesome, now I can follow my beloved Purple & Gold! Go Dawgs! On a side note, many of the Google Now cards never seem to work for me. Namely, activity, packages, and flight confirmation.

  • anezarati

    has the actual scores showed up on google now for anyone? i was able to add my college team a couple of days ago, but nothing has been showing up on the main screen.

  • Go Gators!!!

  • OreoMan

    Go Blue!!!!!

    Go Vandals!

  • Liquidretro

    So is it men, womens, or both?

    • baconslayer09

      People actually watch women’s college basketball?!?!

      • Liquidretro

        Well for my local Big 10 team, the Men’s basketball team has never been to the NCAA tournament. The women on the other hand are ranked 2 or 3rd in the Big 10. Not saying I care about either but I am really surprised Google rolled this out only following the Mens teams. They really should crowd source this if possible.

    • Bionic

      i hate to be sexist but who cares about women’s sports other than guys who have daughters?

  • Goodriddance183

    All hail Cougar Nation! GO COUGS! Yes, I know they are not very good this year.

  • hooligan

    Rock Chalk!

  • College Hockey and AHL support would be great.

    • Daniel Rosseau

      I couldn’t agree more but I don’t see that happening any time soon. It’s the same reason we see 8 of 10 plays in the top 10 are dunks right now instead of some of the unreal plays in hockey every night.

  • Pdiddy187

    Ohio State Buckeyes!

      Go Bucks

        Is it me or does it seem that college teams play harder than the professional teams, especially (american) football. College players have a lot on the line in school, keeping their scholarships, their 1st string positions, not to mention maybe a future in that sport. It seems more and more professional teams look like they are phoning it in at times and don’t give it their all, maybe its me, maybe its because my home team is the Rams. I kind of gave up on professional sports and been watching college ball

  • Bobby Cornwell

    Thank you! Now I can keep tabs on my Miami Hurricanes! 🙂

    • NexusPhan69

      What? I’ve been getting NHL scores automagically on Google Now since hockey started (extremely late) this season.

      • NexusPhan69

        Sorry. Can’t edit to add a screenshot.

        • Tyler Casilio

          Did you notice that they display the wrong logos for some teams now? Like the Sabres, Tampa, LA

      • blix247

        NHL is there, now we just need AHL

  • Add motorsports (F1, IndyCar, NASCAR) and tennis, Google…

    • PyroHoltz

      Tennis and motor sports, interesting combination there.


      • Austin Warren

        Both are popular in Foreign markets.
