Ball and Player Information

By capturing the X/Y/Z coordinate information, revolutionary new statistics are able to be tracked based on proximity and possession of the ball.

In addition to identifying player possession, tracking data now automatically calculates player touches, dribbles and passing info. All tracking data links directly back to existing play-by-play data delivering a comprehensive view of the game and generating innovative evaluation metrics.

Player Movement

SportVU Hoops produces innovative reports to help measure and analyze player activity. By tracking player speed (current, average, top) and distance travelled pace of game and player effort are objectively measured. Each of these metrics is able to be identified for both offense and defense.


By accurately and efficiently tracking individual player touches and dribbles, GMS/Scouts/Coaches/Players are able to better understand a player’s efficiency and impact on the flow of the game.

Possession information includes individual touches, time of possession, passes made/received, dribbles, location tendencies and defensive coverage.

Touch Location
