NCAA tabs StatBroadcast to provide StatMonitr for 2011 NCAA Division-I Men's and Women's Basketball Tournaments and Men's College World Series
INDIANAPOLIS, IND. -- The NCAA and StatBroadcast Systems announced today they have reached an agreement to use StatBroadcast's StatMonitr statistics technology system at all sites of the 2011 Men's and Women's Division-I Basketball tournaments and at the 2011 Men's College World Series. StatBroadcast will also again provide its StatMonitr wireless screens on-site at the 2011 Men's Final Four in Houston, Tex. on April 1 to 4, 2011.
StatBroadcast will be providing its web-based real-time statistics software for media and staff at all 35 host sites of both the men's and women's tournaments, including both Final Fours. It will also be providing this service at the 2011 Men's College World Series in Omaha, Neb. in June and, as part of this agreement, provided it at the 2010 FCS Football Championship held this past January in Frisco, Texas.
StatBroadcast will also be providing StatMonitr wireless screens and on-site support at the Men's Final Four, held at Reliant Stadium in Houston, Texas on April 1st through 4th. This will mark the second consecutive year that StatBroadcast has provided this service at the men's Division-I basketball semifinals and championship games.
"We could not be happier to be once again serving the NCAA at their marquee events. This year, for the first time, StatBroadcast's technologies will be used at every single game of both tournaments, which will be a very proud day for us," said StatBroadcast president Nate Policar. "The opportunity to showcase our products on such a grand stage and improve the NCAA's media relations capabilities is a tremendous one and it's humbling that we have been selected."
This agreement will mark the third, fourth and fifth national championship events to use StatBroadcast technologies, joining the 2011 BCS National Championship Game and the FCS Championship Game. It is also the seventh year that StatBroadcast has provided services for a Division-I basketball tournament round.
