Join Viigo’s NCAA March Madness basketball pool


The “Madness” of March is here and with it comes Viigo’s first ever pool. Join today and make your picks, every game from each of the regions, and see if you can come out on top and earn the title of Viigo’s NCAA basketball champ!

Playing is easy, with version 8 or higher of Viigo, add March Madness from within the sports service. You will then simply choose the teams you think are going to advance then follow along to see if you were right. Viigo will let you monitor the success of your teams and track the progress of the pool.

It’s free and it’s fun but you have to get in at least one hour before the first tip off on Tuesday, March 17.

Do you have the game it takes to achieve glory? To join, go here.


Viigo launches NCAA Basketball service for BlackBerry Cool To Go


Viigo is quickly becoming one of the easiest ways for BlackBerry users to stay up to date on all their sporting news. Following their recent NBA basketball announcement, Viigo has launched its NCAA basketball service, just in time for the start of the Men’s college season. While I don’t normally get NCAA crazy until March Madness begins (there’s just too many NBA games to watch), I must admit the NCAA has already captured my attention (how did Rhode Island almost beat Duke?). I’m also quite interested to see how Stephen Curry, who made a big slash at the tourney last year, progresses as a point guard. Whatever your interest, Viigo’s NCAA service provides access to the scores, schedules, news and commentary you need to follow your alma mater.

For current Viigo/BlackBerry Cool to Go users looking to add the NCAA basketball service, simply select “Sports” from the Viigo home screen and then “Add Sport” from the following page. If you don’t have the BlackBerry Cool To Go version of Viigo yet, click the link below to download it for free! Make sure to also check out Viigo’s NFL, NHL, NCAA Football and Soccer services as well!

bPlay gets ballin’


BasketballbPlay’s just released a new basketball game, NBA 2-on-2 SLAM by Magmic alongside a new Basketball theme. Anyone serious about their basketball would do well to pick both of these up. I just noticed that they also offer discounted bundles now, so if you grabbed a sports jam ringtone too, you’d be getting 10% off. Not a bad deal at all. It might be easy to say gadget geekery and playing sports are mutually exclusive, but it turns out NBA players love their BlackBerrys too.
