The Pause Menu back to top
Tap the time to start and stop as well as to bring up the Pause Menu.
Recording an Assist back to top
On every made shot, the app asks if an assist should be credited. The app remembers who passed the ball to the shooter.
Recording a Rebound back to top
If a missed shot is next touched by a defensive player, the app recognizes this as a defensive rebound. If a teammate of the shooter is the next player to touch the ball after a shot, the app recognizes this as an offensive rebound.
Recording a Steal/Turnover back to top
When the ball goes from a player on one team to a player on the other team, the app recognizes a steal for the defensive player and a turnover for the offensive player.
Recording a Block back to top
To record a block, press ‘block’ then you will be prompted to indicate who blocked the shot, then simply press who has the ball following the block to credit the rebound.
Recording a Foul back to top
Click on ‘Foul’ for whichever team the foul is called on; you will be prompted to indicate who fouled and who was fouled. This will also activate the free throw functionality on the pause menu, if there are free throws to be scored.
Recording a Jump Ball back to top
For a jump ball, the offense either keeps the ball or it’s a turnover. So, for a jump ball, pause the clock because the whistle blows then choose one of these options.
Making Substitutions back to top
Click on a player’s name to sub them in or out of the game. Be sure to hit ‘Save’ before returning to action.
