Time to Get SportVU



This article ran in the New York Times about advances in metrics. Article is about the SportVU technology that consists of cameras situated in an arena that records data points for everything that moves on the floor, every thirtieth of a second. The information can then be processed graphically with a reasonable ease of use. According to the article only three NCAA programs currently use the system, Duke, Louisville, and Marquette. Subscription to the technology is approximately $100,000 annual for NBA use. The technology is now standard in the NBA. SportVU was created by sports analysis company, Stats, L.L.C., who's chief operating officer is a Purdue grad. Hopefully, Purdue can get on board with SportVU sooner rather than later.
