If you’re an NCAA fan, keeping track of your favorite college hoops is going to get a little bit easier this year. A free application for the iPhone and iPad will allow you to stream all of the hoops action to your device – for free.

CBS has been broadcasting the NCAA basketball tournament for free on the web for several years now. A good deal of the games occur during the day, so it stands to reason that more people will watch the events from their desktops at work than can potentially watch an actual broadcast at home. A streaming application was made available previously for the iPhone, but was not free.

The games start March 15, and the application will be available for download from the iTunes Store on March 10, and will not be available for Android devices.

I live less than 20 minutes away from UNC, Duke, and NCSU. College Hoops are a big deal for me (bracket champ two years running!). I can see myself taking the event a little too far and streaming games on my iPhone (and hopefully iPad 2), while I’m sitting in front of a television with a game on.

Any of you NCAA fans? Think you’ll use the streaming applications to keep track of the games?
