Excerpt from the eBook:
“In basketball, leveraging player spacing and defensive matchups, STATS SportVU® data enables the deployment of a measurement index for identifying ball pressure. By quantifying the amount of pressure a player is putting on his opponent, this unique metric can be used as a measure of defensive effectiveness as well as showing the extent to which a player is following team instructions.”
