changes, quarter scores, scoring, fouls and more! We’ve even included a
handy translation editor so you can customize player or team name

College and Years of Service
information is now included for most players
and is viewable from the roster and player screens. This information is
also used in starting lineup announcements and some play-by-play
descriptions. Note: This new data is automatically added to the past
seasons you already own!
New Man Defensive Ratings And Strategy:
We’ve redesigned individual player defensive ratings to include a man
defense rating for both outside and inside play. A portion of both
ratings for all five defensive players are used on every play depending
on where they are located on the court during the play. The player and
roster screens display the outside and inside ratings as well as a
helpful weighted overall rating for each position that helps analyze a
player’s man defensive ability by position. This weighted average takes
into account how often each rating is used based on the player’s
position and era. For example, a player from 2013-14 with a primary
position of power forward and secondary position of center rated a 3
outside and 7 inside is considered a 5.2 at power forward and 5.8 at
center. A center from 1970-71
who is rated as a 2 outside and 10 inside is considered overall to be a
7.9. The new rating system greatly enhances strategy for both the
offensive and defensive coaches!
New On-Screen Defensive Match-up Tab
makes it easy to drag and drop customized defensive match-ups on the
fly. We’ve also included a coaching option to allow the computer to
suggest and set match-ups throughout the game.
New Offensive Rebounding System
includes offensive rebound locations (inside, outside or three) and a
more realistic breakdown of offensive rebound percentage based on the
type of offensive play.
Redesigned Fastbreak System
includes a more realistic play result system, higher number of pull-up
threes, and fastbreak opportunities more closely tied to the offensive
teams shot location.
