ShotTracker Partners with Mountain West to Provide Instant Basketball Tracking and Analytics Data During Games and Practices

In Mountain West softball news that was not shocking, the Mountain West softball champion Colorado State Rams will open the NCAA Tournament vs. Auburn in Arizona.

Both teams will begin their sprint to Oklahoma City on Friday.
