NCAA March Madness 08
The NCAA Basketball series was the main NCAA basketball series published by EA Sports, only on the two next-gen consoles (PS3 and Xbox 360) as of 2004.
Like other games based on NCAA sports, it cannot feature the players' names (as that is against NCAA policy/rules). Therefore, only the players' numbers are used (although many of their last names are featured within the in game commentary, like the NBA Live series) but the player can give them names. NCAA March Madness 07 was released on January 16, 2007. As with 2006, the commentators are Brad Nessler at play-by-play, and Dick Vitale as color commentator.
On July 8, 2008 pastapadre.com revealed that the March Madness series will now be known as NCAA Basketball. That change was first noticed in a quick trailer that is one of the previews in NCAA Football 09. NCAA Basketball 09 is set to be released in November 2008 On September 10, 2008, Kevin Love was named the cover athlete for NCAA Basketball 09.
