ScoreBreak COO Wes Sims emphasised the value the service would provide to sports professionals in a statement.

“As we continue to introduce ScoreBreak to new and exciting sports verticals, we look to identify signature partnerships to help push our product to the next level,” said Sims.

“We believe that matching ScoreBreak with Genius Sports will provide an unmatched experience for coaches and athletes, putting us on a path to equip every athletic program in the country with the tools and insights they need to win in real-time, when decision-making matters most.”

Genius Sports VP of strategic sports partnerships, Oliver Wells, added: “As the exclusive supplier of official NCAA data, we are committed to enhancing the entire college eco-system with the fastest, most accurate game statistics. We’re pleased to be working with ScoreBreak, enhancing coaching decisions before, during and after games.”
