[prMac.com] Dallas, Texas – Ask any college coach and they will tell you that a player’s statistics are one of the most important things they rely on in determining which players they are going to scout. Unfortunately, it is extremely difficult and very time consuming to produce accurate stats beyond points and fouls.
For players that work hard on the boards clearing rebounds, setting up teammates with pinpoint passing, or shutting down opposing teams with quick hands, their true value on the court might not be evident because it is difficult to keep up with all the different things happening on the court. But not anymore.
Introducing StatGeek, where anyone can capture accurate, insightful, and professional quality statistics for basketball simply by tracking the movement of the ball. This turns any volunteer into a professional statistician with the ability to produce a full and accurate box score as well as a play-by-play recap of the game.
Other basketball statistics apps capture stats the old-fashioned way – by using the iPad as an updated pen and paper system. This can cause headaches for users trying to record every single action after it occurs.
By incorporating revolutionary methodology, StatGeek calculates statistics using a unique and innovative algorithm (affectionately referred to as “Stanley the StatGeek”) to calculate all the stats. Users are asked to simply follow the ball as it moves throughout the game, and Stanley does all the work for you.
StatGeek gives players the ability to supply college coaches with more accurate statistics in more categories than ever before as they vie for college scholarships.
Users also have the ability to spread the word by emailing reports right from StatGeek to college coaches, other fans, websites and newspapers. StatGeek exports .html files that can easily be sent as links via Twitter or Facebook or imported into Excel for further manipulation and study.
All of these features are available for Free starting Monday July 15th through Wednesday July 17 in the iPad App Store.
From youth leagues to the NBA, StatGeek is customizable for any level of basketball.
For youth sports, StatGeek provides an easy way for parents, coaches and fans to collect basic game statistics and information and distribute it to family, fans and scouts.
For high schools and AAU/club level teams, StatGeek easily turns any volunteer or student assistant into a professional level statistician. Coaches will be better armed to make in-game decisions, and amateurs will have more opportunities to provide coaches with accurate stats as they vie for college scholarships
At the college and professional levels, StatGeek aims to provide the same cutting-edge, in-depth analysis of objective, empirical evidence that Moneyball pioneer Bill James provided baseball with sabermetrics.
