March Madness on MSN Search

What Christopher Payne mentioned in his talk last week is now up. Search for "March Madness" on MSN Search and the top of the results has some direct links to NCAA basketball tournament information. For exanple at this moment (4:23 PM) it shows the score of the Oakland - Alabama A&M play-in game, with a link to Fox Sports coverage. You can also search on individual player names like "Chris Paul" to get stats, or the name of a team like "Kentucky Wildcats" to get tourney information on them (don't include the double quotes in the search, or it won't work).

They seem to have everyone on all the rosters, so even "Josh Grier", a freshman benchwarmer on the Delaware State Hornets, has his moment in the sun. And if you search for "Stephen King" right now, the first result might not be what you expect.
