Thursday Headlines: Modernizing UK Basketball Edition

UK Basketball apparently is using a new shooting analytics tool.

Technology in sports continues to evolve, and staying at the top of the game means staying on top of new technology.

For UK Basketball, it seems like the Wildcats program is utilizing a new piece of technology looking at shooting analytics.

Tristan Paris noted on Twitter that the system is called the Noah Shooting System and provides instant feedback on shot arc and placement.

According to Pharis, the system is currently used by most of the NBA (26/30 teams), as well as at programs like Alabama and Virginia.

And here’s some more about the system.

Overall, such technology should be beneficial to help the players and coaches get a deeper look at the offense and work on minor details to help improve their game.
