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.

Assist

 

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.
Foul

 

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.
