CyberSports for basketball webcasting technology now allows everyone to WebCast
their basketball games live, worldwide, over the Internet. Since sending video over
the Internet is not practical at this time, these "webcasts" are actually graphical
displays of a team's and individual player's statistics. This graphical display is
updated every 50 seconds keeping viewers abreast of the game's progress and action as
it unfolds. Live webcasting not only adds fun and excitement to basketball programs, it
also creates an immediate source for game results including a detailed, printable box
score report which is assessable world wide. Players, parents, fans, and news media
The webcast display screen is broken down into four parts:
- The upper left hand portion includes a scoreboard, clock (showing time remaining),
team shooting percentages along with team statistics.
- The upper right portion is a sequential listing of the last 10 to 15 play
by play actions of the game.
- The lower two portions show the all the individual player statistics with
the players currently in the game highlighted in blue color.

Webcasts can be viewed on the CyberSports website www.cybersportsUSA.com or can be
linked to the individual team's or conference's websites. Webcast results remain on the
Internet for post game viewing the entire season. Webcasts use a default Live Game
CyberSportsUSA banner. However, if desired, teams can create and use their own personal for
Cybersports offers a convienent WebCast menu allowing viewers to quickly locate the game
they wish to view. With CyberSports for basketball, teams create free Internet team page
showing their staff, player roster and game schedule. Their schedule is then automatically
inserted into CyberSports' quick look webcast menu that shows today's, tomorrow's and
yesterday's webcast schedules.
One of the biggest benefits of webcasting live is that it provides all those interested
supporters and fans that cannot attend the game in person, an opportunity to follow the
"... I webcasted our first game last Saturday and it
went 'smooth as silk'. It actually was no different than any other game that I
have kept stats at...and that's exactly what I wanted. Our college, which doesn't have radio station coverage, was excited about the
webcasting and a lot of people - even the president - enjoyed it."
John Krueger, Sports Information Director
Rockford College & Northern Illinois-Iowa Conference
"Our webcasting has become quite popular with parents, alumni, students and throughout
the conference. I find out how popular it is when we go on the road and the opponent doesn't
webcast. I hear it from the fans.
Gary Pine, Sports Information Director

Another classic example of why you should webcast came from a parent who was under
going chemotherapy and was too sick to attend his son's game. He said that he "did not
miss a single shot or rebound," and was very grateful for webcasting. For any team having
players from out of the local area, it affords a means for parents and friends to stay
abreast of the player's and team's progress throughout the season.
Webcasting is an immediate source for anyone in the world not only to find out game
results, but it also enables viewers to access detailed box scores. This is especially
valuable for the media, who can now print out a box score before the teams can even shake
hands after the game. This also means that teams do not need to fax or call in scores to
the media after the game. Since webcast results stay on the Internet for the entire
season, viewers can go back and check the statistics of previously played games. Any
team statistician not having direct access to a courtside Internet connection can still
post their game results on the Internet by webcasting the final game file from their
office or home after the game.
Since webcasting live over the Internet is very similar to having the game telecast, it
definitely adds personal pride and prestige to any program. Coaches can expect better
performances from their players when the players know that the game is being webcasted
When entire leagues or conferences WebCast their games, it establishes a live Internet
communication network between the different venues. Since real time scores and statistics
of all the games are available at anytime, no longer do teams and their fans need to wait
for tomorrow's newspapers or make costly phone calls to find out the results of other
games being played. This has resulted in generating a whole lot of new excitement and
interest in what is happening league wide. In fact, teams are reporting that after the
games, rather than leaving, spectators are coming to the scorer's table to watch (and even
cheer) the end of the other games being webcasted!!!
"Now that 5 of the GSAC schools webcast, we designate one computer at press row to keep up on
the other webcasts during our game. Twice this season, our arch-rival Biola went into
overtime. After our game was over, a throng of our fans huddled around press row, 4 rows
deep into the stands, and watched the webcast of the Biola game. They were yelling at the
operator to keep "refreshing" the screen. It was quite a site...
Additionally, during our games, I'll have our assistant coaches come to
press row and ask what's going on in the other games. Finally, I have discovered that even
those schools who don't webcast or use a different software, still go to the Cybersports
page after their game to find out what the other GSAC teams did and to immediately get the
box score. So as you can see, Cybersports is quite popular in the GSAC."

Since users can create their own Webcast banners, webcasts can be used as fundraiser.
CyberSports does not get directly involved with advertising, it only provides the tools
to do it. Teams or programs secure the ads, create the banners, and collect 100% of the
money courtesy of CyberSports.
Since CyberSports for basketball software is affordable for any program, it provides
smaller programs with the same statistic opportunity and webcasting platform as the
Webcasting worldwide at the click of the mouse is a simple operation.
All that is needed is a computer with a modem and a courtside Internet connection.
The CyberSports basketball software does all the rest. After setting up the game file
using the CyberSports game module, all the statistician needs to do is to establish an
Internet connection, select the WebCast option on the main menu bar, and then click the
Start webcast button.
"WIHS tried WebCasting our stats for the first time
this weekend -- and not only did it work, but it was
John F. Wood, Wyoming Indian High School
"...we did the Limestone County Tournament in Alabama and used the Game
Monitor...the local TV station loved it..We networked our laptops and had other
monitors set up for the Coaches at Hospitality Table and the TV guys to use.
The words "Life Saver" was used several times by the ZTV crew filming and
calling the games. I have kept stats for 19 years and I am so glad that
CYBERSPORTS has come my way."
TIM GEE, Tanner Rattlers
All you have to do is tell the
players to tell their parents, and the whole world will know. CyberSports knows this all
too well. If a scheduled game for some reason does not get webcasted, CyberSports sure
hears about it.
