KANSAS CITY, Mo. – The National Association of Basketball Coaches will continue a longstanding partnership with ShotTracker to bring immersive data, video, and fan engagement experiences to the 2023 Hall of Fame Classic.
The 2023 Hall of Fame Classic – featuring Boston College, Colorado State, Creighton, and Loyola Chicago – will take place Nov. 22-23 at T-Mobile Center in Kansas City. The NABC operates the Hall of Fame Classic, which will mark its 23rd year in Kansas City this season.
The event’s competing teams will once again have access to ShotTracker’s full suite of advanced data tools, including video technology on the benches during live game play. Via the ShotTracker app, coaches will have the ability to analyze real-time advanced analytics combined with video clips to optimize lineups and game planning.
The Hall of Fame Classic was the first Division I men’s basketball event to utilize ShotTracker’s player-tracking technologies in 2018, and last year equipped team benches with live video tools under what was then an experimental NCAA rule.
Fans inside T-Mobile Center will also be invited to play live Hall of Fame Classic Bingo, a new second-screen digital experience powered by ShotTracker data. Each fan’s live bingo card will include squares that correspond to various statistical occurrences or trends, updating in real time. Fans can track live leaderboards for the chance to win unique Hall of Fame Classic prize packages.
And ShotTracker will leverage its player-tracking data and AI technology to power numerous enhancements to T-Mobile Center’s live video board content and replay capabilities, offering another modern upgrade to the Hall of Fame Classic fan experience.
“ShotTracker has been a valuable partner for the NABC for many years, and shares our passion for advancing the future of college basketball,” said NABC Executive Director Craig Robinson. “The numerous data-driven enhancements ShotTracker will bring to the Hall of Fame Classic will elevate the event experience for coaches, players and fans alike.”
