Georgia Tech: First Power 5 Team to Use Noah In-Game

Georgia Tech is the first, and currently, the only Power 5 team to have Noah Basketball installed in both their practice gym and arena, setting the stage for the future of basketball analytics and shot-tracking.

The Yellow Jackets had Noah Basketball installed in the Zelnak Center in the fall of 2017, then shortly thereafter in McCamish Pavilion. They’ve been consistently using the system in both facilities ever since.

Using the Noah shooting system in practice can help improve players’ shots and consistency, which translates to better play during games. While practicing on the system has shown proven results for players during games, using the Noah shooting system in-game in addition to practice allows teams to more accurately track how well the consistency shown in practice translates to game play, where there is more pressure on each shot, less time to get set and various spatial factors affecting depth perception and accuracy.

After finishing the 2017-2018 season 12-19, the Yellow Jackets are leaning on technology to help them improve in the offseason. “They’re certainly technology-oriented and coach [Josh] Pastner and that staff, they realize what Noah can do for them,” said John Carter, Founder and CEO of Noah Basketball in an interview with SportTechie.

Noah Basketball is looking forward to seeing other top basketball programs utilize the Noah shooting system both in practice and during games.

Noah Basketball is available for shooters at every level from high school to the NBA, and offers free shooting clinics to allow players to experience the system themselves. Request a clinic now to learn more about how this technology can help create a more consistent arc.
