In College Basketball, The Rich Are Just Getting Richer—And SmarterKyle Wagner3/26/14 11:06amFiled to: sportvucollege basketballgettypicRegressing20EditPromoteShare to KinjaToggle Conversation toolsGo to permalinkHey, SportVU motion-tracking cameras are coming to college basketball. In fact, they're already there, the New York Times explains, in arenas at Duke, Louisville, and Marquette this season. This is good news for any number of nerdy, obsessive reasons, and laughable news because, once the technology really matures, it likely places smaller schools at an even greater institutional disadvantage than exists now. You know about SportVU. It tracks players and ball movement, sampling 30 times a second, and spits that out as an enormous pile of data that can then be pored over by teams, nerds, and even casual observers at NBA.com. It's very cool and potentially very useful, though its true potential is pretty far off. You also know about humongously imbalanced spending in college sports, certainly including basketball.
