Turner Sports and the NCAA announced Thursday that fans can enjoy the 2012 NCAA spring championships -- with more than 400 combined hours of live streaming video from more than 200 events -- on NCAA.com and the free NCAA Sports iPhone app. Live coverage begins Friday, April 27, with the inaugural Division III Men’s Volleyball Championship from Springfield, Mass., and continues through June 3. A total of 30 championships will be streamed live exclusively on NCAA.com including Division I men’s and women’s golf, Division I men’s and women’s tennis, National Collegiate men’s volleyball, National Collegiate women’s water polo and Division II and III men’s lacrosse.

To prepare fans for the upcoming championships, NCAA.com will also stream 20 selection shows to reveal the championship fields and key matchups.

“We’re thrilled to provide college sports fans with the most live video coverage of spring championships available anywhere,” said Mark Johnson, vice president and general manager, NCAA Digital. “NCAA.com continues to expand its reach within collegiate athletics and truly is the only website where fans can track and follow their schools and student-athletes across all sports.”

In addition to the live streaming coverage, NCAA.com will serve as the official online and mobile hub for the NCAA spring championships. During the seven-week period, fans will be able to experience all the action from their favorite sports, athletic programs and student-athletes through the site’s coverage of all 37 NCAA spring championships including the College World Series, Women’s College World Series and Men’s and Women’s Lacrosse Championships. 

Coverage will include:

• Interactive Tournament Brackets: The content hub for each championship, this bracket provides quick links to all relevant content for each matchup.

• Video Highlights/Interviews/Features: Extensive video content, including game highlights from all 37 spring championships, coach and student-athlete interviews and behind-the-scenes video features.

• Live Scores and Statistics: The latest scores and schedules from each championship, as well as box scores and play-by-play

• Comprehensive Editorial Coverage:  In-depth analysis from the NCAA.com editorial team including previews, on-site student-athlete and team features, and recaps from all the championship action.

“Providing fans, our membership, our student-athletes and the student-athletes’ families with the convenience of accessing our NCAA championships in real-time and on multiple platforms keeps them engaged and updated on the tournaments,” said Mark Lewis, NCAA executive vice president for championships and alliances. “We also have an opportunity to potentially increase the fan base and viewership of NCAA sports that aren’t normally televised through additional online streaming and mobile device applications, which ultimately puts more eyes on the accomplishments of NCAA student-athletes.”
