#ScoutingSmarter: How NCAA Tourney Teams Prepare For The Biggest Games with FastScout

By FastModel Sports

#ScoutingSmarter FastScout blog

In postseason play, pressure goes up and every detail matters. Here’s how FastScout helps NCAA Tourney teams game prep. Welcome to #ScoutingSmarter.

Getting to the NCAA Tournament requires a tremendous amount of disciplined preparation. Throughout the season every basket counts and every defensive stop matters in getting to this point; the ultimate goal of competing for a national championship.

Of course, the game prep only goes up a level once actually in the tournament, because now, any team can be beaten by any other. There are several factors that make tournament scouting a whole different beast from the regular season. Most likely, teams are playing new opponents from outside their own conference in which they must become familiar with quickly. Speaking of that, the turnaround time is a huge factor in preparation as coaches may find out their opponent in as little as 48 hours before a game is to be played.

All this to say–having the right tools to put together a scouting report quickly and efficiently is crucial. Luckily for coaches, FastScout exists! So, now that we understand the pressure of post season scouting, how does FastScout help in that department? Glad you asked.

Shot Charts in FastScout

Get a high level breakdown of where opponent players like to score from. Your players will know exactly where their sweet spot is, and not to let them get there by forcing to areas where they are not as effective. We’ve heard directly from coaches that players remember seeing images like these better than they remember a shooting percentage. As always, it’s not what the coaching staff knows, it’s what players are able to comprehend and then execute on the court. That’s #ScoutingSmarter.

Note: Shot charts are currently only available to NBA and NCAA customers.

Personnel Tiles in FastScout

Ensure no detail goes unnoticed with FastScout Personnel tiles. Customize them to include the most important stats that matter for your program. Add text to include notes like strengths, weaknesses, tendencies, go-to moves and more. That’s #ScoutingSmarter.
