FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
SEPTEMBER 13, 2016
Spokane, WA – Scorebook Live, the creator of the first mobile application approved for use as an Official Scorebook in the game of basketball, announced Tuesday (Sept. 13) that it has entered into a multi-year agreement with the Indiana Basketball Coaches Association to jointly promote and market Scorebook Live to high school teams across the state of Indiana.
“We are happy to announce that ‘Scorebook Live’ is coming on board as a corporate partner with the IBCA. Scorebook Live is an innovative way to record scoring stats and stream live play-by-play action to fans and media on scorebooklive.com” says Steve Witty, IBCA Executive Director. “This service is free to all coaches. No longer will a coach need to call in scores and stats after each game. The IBCA looks forward to this partnership.”
“Scorebook Live is proving now to be the future of all high school basketball scorekeeping and enabling fans to keep track of how their favorite teams are doing … even without being in the gym,” says Mike Hackett, IBCA President. “The IBCA is excited to be associated with this trendsetting and user-friendly program!”
The Scorebook Live iPad application replaces the need for high school basketball teams to use the paper scorebook. Teams using the app will be able to stream live scores and play by play to their fans during the game at www.scorebooklive.com and publish box scores and game recaps for media and fans at the conclusion of each game.

“As a coach, Scorebook Live makes my job easier by giving our local media real-time access to game updates, final scores and players scoring so that they can report on our games without the need for coaches to spend time reporting scores to multiple media outlets each night. I also like the live scoreboard that will now be our school website.” said Scott Kreiger, Head Coach for Fort Wayne Canterbury Boys Basketball.
