Whether you are dreaming about a Wildcats vs. Jayhawks championship game, are eager to see which bracket-busting Cinderella can pull off an upset or just want to enjoy a bunch of basketball, you can use your Sprint phone to keep up with the action.

We found some downloadable apps that will let you follow your favorite college basketball teams as they march through this year’s tournament.

Plus, ESPN Mobile TV is available on Sprint TV. ESPN Mobile TV coverage during March and April will feature more than 100 live events and more than 250 hours of coverage for Sprint customers, including live college basketball games.

If you have Sprint phones such as HTC Hero with Google and Samsung Moment with Google you can browse the Android Market to find apps providing the latest scores, breaking news or just amusement.

Hoops fans also can find great apps in BlackBerry App World and others for Palm Pre and Palm Pixi.

Here are some basketball apps you might want to try:

• College SuperFans – access to up-to-the minute scores, schedules, news and live game results for Palm Pre and Palm Pixi users. Coming soon to the Android Market and BlackBerry App World.

• Sports Calendar – never miss a game with this app. Once you find the tip-off time, you can add it to the calendar on your Palm Pre or Palm Pixi.

And while you are waiting for that next tip-off, you can see how your virtual “J” is falling or put on a full-court press with your trivia knowledge.
