Hudl Assist follows the rules and statistician manual of NCAA sports

Shots


Assists

An Assist is credited to a player when they make, in the judgement of the statician (Hudl Assist), a crucial pass to the scoring of the field goal.

Things to Note:

  • An assist is subjective and what one coach considers an assist another will not.If you want to add, edit or remove the tags we add, these steps will guide the way.
  • An assist is not credited after a made free throw.
  • A good rule of thumb is that if the player, who scored, made a move to get to the basket after the pass there is no assist.

Blocked Shots

A blocked shot is credited to a defensive player any time the player makes contact with the ball to appreciably alter the flight of a FGA and the shot is not made and goaltending is not called, or while a player is in the obvious act of shooting, the ball is stuffed or knocked loose before it is in flight and no foul is called.

Things to Note:

  • A blocked shot can be subjective. Analysts are trained to tag a blocked shot if the player has the ball above their shoulder. If the ball is below their shoulder it will be considered a steal or deflection.
  • Based on video quality blocked shots can be missed. If you need to add a missed block, click here to learn how.

Field Goal

Field Goal Attempt (FGA)

A Field Goal Attempt is given to a player when they try to shoot, throw, tip or tap the ball into their own basket in an attempt to score.

Field Goal Made (FGM)

A Field Goal Made is given to a player when their FGA results in a basket/goal being counted for a score of 2/3 points.

Things to Note:

  • Video Angles:
    1. If the game is filmed from eye level or below, we may not be able to tell if a shot is a 2 or 3pt shot.
    2. If the game is filmed from behind the basket, we may not be able to tell if a shot is a 2 or 3pt shot.
  • Due to the above-mentioned video angles, we may not be able to tag the shot location.

Free Throws

Free Throw Attempt (FTA)
A Free Throw Attempt is given to a player when they shoot an uncontested shot, during dead time, awarded to a team after the opposing team committed a personal or technical foul.

Free Throw Made (FTM)

A Free Throw Made is given to a player when they shoot an uncontested shot, during dead time, which results in a basket/goal for a score of 1pt.

Things to Note:

  • Free Throw Made shots will not have an assist.
  • If the free throw is not recorded we will not tag it, even if we see the score change

Putback

A putback is when a player gets an offense of rebound and puts the ball right back for a field goal attempt.

Things to Note:

  • This is not addressed in the NCAA statistician manual
  • There is no report on a putback in Hudl

Shot Types


Shot types are the type of movement a player makes during a field goal attempt.

Things to Note:

  • This is not addressed in the NCAA statistician manual
  • These are Hudl's definitions and are subjective
  • There is no report on certain shot type
  • We don’t tag all shot types available.


Jump Shot

A shot in which the player jumps straight up and in mid-jump shoots the ball to the basket.

Layup

A two-point shot attempt made by leaping from below the basket, laying the ball up near the basket, and using one hand to bounce it off the backboard and into the basket.

Dunk

A player jumps into the air, controls the ball above the horizontal plane of the rim, and attempts to score by putting the ball directly through the basket with one or both hands.

Contested

When a player on the other teams gets in the way of the shot. They can do this by putting a hand up or putting their body in front of the shooter.

Drive

When a player dribbles towards the hoop, in a quick motion, for a layup, jump shot, floater or dunk.

Catch and Shoot

When one player passes the ball to their teammate and they immediately shoot without dribbling or holding the ball.

Rebounds


Rebound

A rebound is credited to a player or a team each time a FGA or FTA is not made.

Player Rebound

A Player Rebound is credited to a player who recovers a live ball that has missed scoring a goal (field goal or free throw). The recovery may by gaining control of the ball.

Team Rebound

A team rebound is credited to the team entitled to the ball for a throw-in if the ball has gone out of bounds after a missed goal but before there was player control.

Things to Note:

  • NCAA states that a rebound is given to a player who tips the ball to a teammate. Due to film quality, subjectivity and consistently Hudl Assist will award the rebound to the player who controls possession.
  • NCAA states that anytime a ball is dead, after a field goal attempt, but before a team or player can rebound the ball it’s a dead-ball rebound. Hudl Assist doesn’t have this option and will award it as a Team Rebound.

Offensive Rebound

A rebound is credited to a player or team when they last had possession of the ball.

Defensive Rebound

A rebound is credited to a player or team when the opposing team last had possession of the ball.

Inbounds

An inbound occurs when the play is dead and a team throws or passes the ball into play.


Inbound

An Inbound occurs when the play is dead and a team throws or passes the ball into play on their defensive side of the court.

Inbound: Baseline Out of Bounds (BLOB)

A BLOB occurs when the team throwing the ball in is on the baseline of their own basket.


Inbound: Sideline Out of Bounds (SLOB)
A SLOB occurs when the team throwing the ball in is on the sideline closest to their own basket.

Things to Note:

  • Inbound is not an official NCAA stat.
  • An inbound can occur at the center of the court. We will tag this as SLOB unless it is clear they are on the defensive side of the court.

It is administrative when there is a violation of the rules pertaining to, but not limited to, the playing court/equipment requirements, rosters, benches, illegal uniforms/numbers, scorebook, team delays, excessive timeouts and team followers

Things to Note:

  • Fouls are not defined in the NCAA statisticians manual
  • There is no option for a dead ball foul with Hudl Assist
  • When a foul is committed while no team is in possession of the ball the player will be credited a:
    • Defensive foul if the other team last had possession of the ball
    • Offensive foul if their team last had possession of the ball
    • An offensive foul will also give a turnover

Turnovers


Turnovers

A turnover occurs when a team, after gaining control of the ball or having been entitled to the ball, does not produce a try for goal (field or free) that would count if it goes in before the opponent either gains control of the ball, is entitled to the ball or scores a goal.

Deflections

A deflection is credited to a player when the player is able to disrupt the ball but doesn’t necessarily force a turnover.

Steal

A steal is credited to a player when the player’s positive, aggressive action(s), which includes contact with the ball, causes a turnover by an opponent.


Unforced Turnover

An unforced turnover occurs when the offense loses possession of the ball without the defensive interfering or attempting to cause the turnover.

Things to Note:

  • NCAA states that a steal is given to a player who tips the ball to a teammate. Due to film quality, subjectivity, and consistency Hudl Assist will award the steal to the player who controls possession.
  • The person who tipped the ball will be awarded a deflection
  • A Deflection is not an official NCAA stat

Jersey Numbers


Jersey Numbers

The player who is directly involved in the moment will be attributed the stat


Substitutions

Definition found in the NCAA 2019-2020 Men’s or Women’s Rules Book


Substitutions

A substitute is a team member who has reported to the scorers’ table that he wishes to become a player and is waiting at the scorers’ table to be beckoned into the game by an official.

Things to Note:

  • Jersey numbers can be subjective or unidentifiable dependent on the film quality, color of jerseys or moment being tagged
  • If an analyst can’t see the jersey number they will tag it as unknown
  • If jersey colors are hard to read we recommend the coach add, easy to identify, player descriptions in order to receive more accuracy or more data
  • If the video is recorded with several stops in the video (ex. At every dead ball) substitutions will likely be missed

Offense & Defense


Possession

Possession is when one team has control of the ball.

Minutes Played

When reported to the nearest minute, minutes played are approximations and the conventional rules for rounding apply.

Things to Note:

  • Possessions are calculated and automatically marked based on the other tags in Hudl assist.
  • If there is missing video, the possession will not be accurately calculated.
  • Minutes played are an approximation based on substitutions tagged. This is not an exact number.
  • Possessions and substitutions allow the minutes played to be populated
  • Possessions are not an official NCAA stat
