(New York) – Overtime Elite Partners with Synergy Sports
Synergy Sports, a division of Sportradar, will work with Overtime Elite (OTE) to provide data and analytics services to the transformative new basketball league. Synergy is used across all levels of basketball from the NBA to grassroots to help coaches analyze team performances, build winning strategies, scout opponents and develop players. OTE games are tagged and uploaded to the Synergy platform, allowing not only OTE coaches and team staff access, but also professional scouts and coaches.
Discussing the Synergy Sports partnership, Sportradar Managing Director of Sports Performance Mark Silver said “The fact that Overtime Elite is implementing Synergy coaching and scouting solutions in its inaugural season demonstrates an organizational commitment from Overtime to not only help these players achieve their maximum potential on the court, but also maximize their exposure to scouts at the highest levels of the game. Across our foundational services, our Max Editor, Advanced Analytics, raw data API and content services, we’re excited to be delivering a ton of value for this impressive new competition.”
Brandon Williams, Head of Basketball Operations at Overtime Elite said “One of the fundamental priorities at Overtime Elite is to provide the best possible environment, tools, resources and services for our staff, coaches, and players to excel in pursuit of reaching the highest level of the profession. Synergy’s products help our teams prepare for upcoming games, provide insights about opponents, and guide the development of players through metrics that track their progress. Having our games featured on the Synergy platform, OTE student-athletes better enhance their market value, as NBA and international pro scouts have complete access to the library of games, advanced statistics, and sophisticated evaluation tools.”
