Cincinnati, Ohio (July 25th, 2019) – PlaySight’s Smart AI and connected camera basketball technology is coming to the Cincinnati Bearcats Men’s and Women’s Basketball programs this offseason. Cincinnati is set to become the latest NCAA basketball program to add a SmartCourt to their practice facility, joining the likes of Wake Forest University, the University of Nevada-Reno, the University of Florida, the University of Oklahoma and the University of North Carolina. The Bearcats are the first American Athletic Conference (AAC) basketball team to partner with PlaySight.
We talked with George Neilson, the Video Coordinator for Cincinnati Men’s Basketball, to learn more about the program’s decision to add PlaySight technology.
“PlaySight clearly gives us an edge in both player, and program, development.”
Why did your program decide to invest in PlaySight?
Neilson: “As a program here at Cincinnati, we are always looking for ways to create a competitive advantage for our team. Having the ability to review film in real-time, view film from multiple angles, and our players to have the ability to access film of themselves at any time, PlaySight clearly gives us an edge in both player, and program, development.”
Before PlaySight, how did the team typically capture/record practice video?
Neilson: “Prior to PlaySight, we captured practice with a typical camera, that was placed in a Scissor-Lift and elevated to around 15ft above the practice floor with a manager/staff member recording and coding practice live.”
