Common Questions

How do I set my roster? How do I breakdown my game? What is the summary tab for?

In order to use the the basketball breakdown tools in Hudl Classic, you must use Safari on a Mac computer or Internet Explorer on a Windows computer.

Use Breakdown to create detailed stats reports and shot charts for any play(s) in a game. Use Summary to look at your players individually, or your team as a whole. Summary is generated from the Breakdown to provide individual and team shot charts and a basic stat report for your team and your opponent.
