Kansas City March Madness Guide


As the college basketball regular season winds down, fans of the Kansas Jayhawks know March Madness is right around the corner. Another strong late-season run could result in their third Big-12 tournament championship in four years, as well as a high seed heading into the tournament. But what are the best ways to watch the tournament in Kansas City? Keep reading to find out where you can catch all of the Jayhawks games during the tourney.


Kansas City Sports Bars

If you want to venture out and be among the masses during the tourney, whether at lunch or after work, check out some of the best Kansas City spots to grab a bite to eat.

Try Smitty’s Garage Burger. With affordable prices and an excellent variety of burgers (including the Spicy Guacamole burger), this hotspot is one of the best KC bars for March Madness.

Another sports bar that is popular in the area is The Peanut. Open since 1933, before the Prohibition era, this iconic piece of KC history offers a wide selection of wings, burgers and an excellent selection of beer. There are numerous Peanut locations throughout Kansas City, so you’ll always have a place to catch those 15-seed upsets.

March Madness App & Website

It goes without saying the March Madness website and apps, on both Apple and Android devices, should be your first option when you want to stream the NCAA Tournament. You will have access to every game of the tournament (including the first-round qualifying games).

With over 67 games sitting at your fingertips, the March Madness app is clearly your best choice to watch Kansas cut down the nets this year.

When using your browser there is even a nifty “Boss Button” that can be used to pull up a mock spreadsheet at work. This will give the illusion of productivity to your office coworkers—if you dare.

CBS All Access

If you don’t want to download the March Madness app, you can use your television service provider login with the CBS All-Access pass. This gives you the ability to view any live programming on CBS, including all CBS-sponsored March Madness games. With a free seven-day trial available, it would be an excellent way to watch the first few rounds of the tournament.

Connect in Your Car

What if you don’t have the ability to watch the games while relaxing at home or killing time at work? If you have to hit the open road, there are a few options you can consider to avoid missing the most important minutes of a Jayhawks contest.

The first option would be to connect your phone or tablet through your in-vehicle Wi-Fi. Popular Chevy models that include 4G LTE hotspots include the Chevy Cruze and the Chevy Impala. You can also connect your devices to the entertainment system DVD players in your Chevy Traverse. This will allow you to stream the games using any apps you have on your device.

The next option would be to purchase a satellite receiver, but it may be an expensive option you can avoid.


Unlike a decade ago, it’s quite easy to live stream NCAA Tournament games when you’re away from home.
