Florida Gulf Coast University men’s basketball team will begin utilizing the Noah Shooting System as part of its comprehensive analytics program.
Noah Basketball is now tracking every shot taken by the Eagle’s basketball team. Florida Gulf Coast University joins the Noah roster alongside the defending NBA Champion Golden State Warriors, the 2019 WNBA Champion Washington Mystics, NCAA DI Champion Virginia Cavaliers, along with 80 percent of NBA teams and numerous top-tier NCAA Division I and high school teams.
The Eagles finished top five in the ASUN Conference this past season. Nationally, FGCU was sixth in three-point attempts, seventh in total three-point makes (347), and 10th in three pointers per game (10.2) Adopting the Noah Shooting System will help players accurately track their shots, resulting in even more improved shooting percentages and improving on last year’s single-season record for made three pointers.
“We are excited about utilizing the Noah Basketball system to help our players improve their shooting,” said head coach Pat Chambers. “Player development is so critical to the success of any program. Having tangible analytics and real-time feedback such as what Noah provides helps us address areas to improve.”
The Noah Shooting System allows players to receive instant, verbal feedback they can actively use to correct their form, helping to build the muscle memory needed for the perfect shot. In partnership with Noah’s data service, Noahlytics, players will also have access to their own personalized dashboard updated in real time with the specific metrics that determine the quality of a player’s makes and misses.
“We are excited to provide our technology to the Florida Gulf Coast University men’s basketball team,” said John Carter, CEO of Noah Basketball. “Our technology helps provide teams with a competitive edge and helps their players get closer to consistently achieving the perfect shot.”
Mounted on the backboard, the Noah captures the position of the ball 30 times per second, analyzes the trajectory and the ball position within the rim, allowing players to pinpoint how to increase their shooting percentages. Data is shared through its user-friendly cloud-based platform, Noahlytics, where it can be filtered by shot length, player name, court placement, makes and misses. This data, in combination with charts that integrate with the Noahlytics unique grading system, provide tangible diagnoses for what a player needs to do to improve his/her shooting.
