The new 'Easy Decision' campaign includes a video series featuring seasoned basketball decision makers and coaches Frank Vogel and Jay Wright.

The 'Easy Decision' campaign will highlight how Dove Men+Care body wash and bar offer more care for men's skin.

The videos will air throughout March Madness programming as part of Unilever's multi-year NCAA Corporate Partnership with CBS Sports and Turner Sports, and on www.youtube.com/dovemencareus.
