BASKETBALL COMPUTER PROGRAM GETS EXPOSURE ON CBS TELECASTS
Published March 13, 1996
A computer program called "Coach's Edge" will be used by CBS Sports in its coverage of the NCAA Men's Basketball tournament. "Coach's Edge" has been used by CBS analyst Billy Packer to explain key plays on-screen. The program was designed by Chris Davis, who sells it out of his house in Lawrence, KS. Davis has sold more than 250 copies at $200 each. Davis approached Packer and CBS Coordinating Producer Bob Dekas last December and showed them the program, and two week's later it made its CBS debut on the KU-Indiana game. Other clients include Duke University and the Univ. of North Carolina. The Milwaukee Bucks also use the system and hope to have it on sidelines during games next year on laptop computers (Mark Davis, K.C. STAR, 3/13).
