KANSAS CITY, Mo. — (Bracket) The NAIA is excited to announce that they will again partner with ShotTracker to bring elite-level analytics to the NAIA Division I Men’s Basketball National Championship, scheduled March 14-20 at Municipal Auditorium in downtown Kansas City, Mo. This championship event marks the second year in which ShotTracker’s real-time game analytics are available to NAIA players, coaches and fans.
ShotTracker automatically tracks player and ball movement to deliver real-time basketball statistics. Each player wears a small sensor and uses the technology enabled Spalding ShotTracker basketball, both of which connect with sensors installed in the rafters above the court. Analytics are served to coaches, players and fans-- including box scores, shot charts, live court view of the games and more.
A bonus to fan’s this year is the augmented reality portion of the app, which gives the fan the ability to touch their mobile device while the app is running and view a statistical breakdown of that player. Fans can download the app in the iTunes and Android stores. Check out the highlights from last year, watch this video.
“The NAIA is an amazing organization and we look forward to powering and partnering with this fine organization for years to come. This year’s fans will experience a sneak peak of how ShotTracker is revolutionizing the game of basketball”, said Davyeon Ross, Co-Founder and COO of ShotTracker.
“We are excited to partner again with ShotTracker to bring their state of the art technology to our coaches, players and fans at this year’s tournament. The NAIA is proud to continue moving the needle forward in the development and usage of technology in athletics.” said Jim Carr, NAIA President & CEO.
