Live Search Offers NCAA Tourney Info in Instant Answers

Live Search has added NCAA basketball tournament information to the Instant Answers they offer in the search results. Use “NCAA tournament,” “March Madness,” or “college basketball” to get broad answers. Use a team name and mascot to get Instant Answers about, um, a TEAM!



Earlier this week, Live Search unveiled Active Answers and Instant Answers are included in the IE 8 search box as well. Last November, shopping and flight status information were added to Instant Answers.
