Coverage


How is each NCAA Women's Basketball game covered?

Coverage levels for the NCAA Women's Basketball API can be found here.


What post-season national tournaments do you cover?

We cover the NCAA National Tournament (March Madness), the WBI, WBIT, and WNIT. Here are the coverage levels for these tournaments:

  • March Madness – All games will be covered live via full coverage.
  • WBI – All games covered live, via Extended Boxscore coverage.
  • WBIT – All games covered live, via Extended Boxscore coverage.
  • WNIT – All games covered live, via Extended Boxscore coverage.


NCAA Tournament


When we will the NCAA Tournament schedule be available?

The initial release of the NCAA Tournament schedule will be released within 2 hours of the completion of the Selection Sunday telecast.

You may also reference our March Madness Workflow page for coverage info and sample data.



Integration


What format are date fields presented in?

When we present date only values we present these in the ISO 8601 standard format.

ex: 2013-04-03

We use these for attributes that have date and no time (such as birthdate). For more information: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ISO_8601


What format are the date/time fields presented in?

All of our Date/Time attributes are in UTC, presented in the ISO 8601 standard format.

ex: 2013-04-03T18:15:00+00:00

For more information: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ISO_8601


How do I locate the TTL (Time to Live)/cache on an API endpoint?

The cache (in seconds) can be accessed in the returned header information on each RESTful API call, under cache-control.

ex. cache-control: max-age=1, public, s-maxage=1 or
cache-control: public, must-revalidate, max-age=120

The TTL may adjust when an event is live for some game-centric endpoints. This information is available for each endpoint on our developer portal.



Data Workflow

How can I find timings for data entry updates?

Our NCAAWB Data Entry Workflow section covers data availability updates. This includes updates for poll rankings, coverage levels, stat validation, and more.



Game Statuses


What game statuses can I expect to see and what are their definitions?

  • scheduled - The game is scheduled to occur.
  • created – The game has been created and we have begun logging information.
  • inprogress – The game is in progress.
  • halftime - The game is currently at halftime.
  • complete – The game is over, but stat validation is not complete.
  • closed – The game is over and the stats have been validated.
  • cancelled – The game has been cancelled. No makeup game will be played as a result.
  • delayed – The start of the game is currently delayed or the game has gone from in progress to delayed for some reason.
  • postponed – The game has been postponed, to be made up at another day and time. Once the makeup game is announced, a new game and ID will be created and scheduled on the announced makeup date.
  • time-tbd – The game has been scheduled, but a time has yet to be announced.
  • if-necessary – The game will be scheduled if it is required.
  • unnecessary – The series game was scheduled to occur, but will not take place due to one team clinching the series early.

How do you handle forfeit games?

We mark a forfeit game with a status of closed. The final score is input as 2-0 in favor of the team not forfeiting.

Schedules


How do I pull in schedule data for future games in which teams are not yet known?

This API features a TBD team used for every entry in to-be-determined matchups. This virtual team will have its own unique ID specific to this API.

Find the TBD team in the Teams endpoint.

  • <team id="907dc4e5-6957-4d19-b7d4-b1b7003b91e6" name="TBD" alias="TBD" market="Team"/>

The matchups will appear as below in the Schedule endpoints.

Make note of the status attribute to determine whether the time of the game is known. A status of time-tbd indicates the game has been scheduled, but a time has yet to be announced. A status of scheduled indicates the game time is known.

Court Dimensions


What is the scale of the X Y coordinates?

The court we use is 1128 by 600. The scale is in inches.


Why does the team_basket attribution in the Play-by-Play endpoint not match the basket orientation (left vs. right) in the broadcast or game tracking?

Our team_basket attribution is set to match the orientation of the local television broadcast, which is on the opposite side of the scorer's table. The team_basket attribution may not match the orientation used by the particular broadcast or game tracker that you are viewing.

If you want to provide a perspective from the scorer's table, you will have to map the coordinates so that the coordinates attributed to left side of the court are attributed to the right side of the court on your end (and vice versa).



Neutral Site Games


How are home/away team designations determined for neutral site games, and are those designations consistent across Sportradar products?

In the NCAAWB API there are no "official" home/away designations for neutral site games. For neutral site games we set the neutral site value to true.

<game id="4f16ff1b-4b9e-4aea-918e-46fd6c129964" status="scheduled" coverage="full" scheduled="2020-12-21T03:00:00Z" 
  neutral_site="true" conference_game="true" home_team="e52c9644-717a-46f4-bf16-aeca000b3b44" away_team="9fccbf28-2858-4263-821c-fdefb3c7efa3">
   <time_zones venue="US/Pacific" home="US/Pacific" away="US/Mountain" />
   <venue id="8880a26a-485d-424f-a53f-bedae94b36ba" name="T-Mobile Arena" capacity="18000" address="3780 South Las Vegas Boulevard" 
    city="Paradise" state="NV" zip="89158" country="USA" />
   <home name="Washington Huskies" alias="WASH" id="e52c9644-717a-46f4-bf16-aeca000b3b44" />
   <away name="Colorado Buffaloes" alias="COLO" id="9fccbf28-2858-4263-821c-fdefb3c7efa3" />
   <broadcasts>
      <broadcast network="Pac-12 Network" type="TV" />
   </broadcasts>
</game>

The above sample game will count towards Washington's and Colorado's neutral site record and not their respective home and away records.

In the NCAAWB API, we use the home/away team designations when we initially publish the schedules. We will not change the home/away designations after the schedule is initially published. This does not apply to games that have been changed from a neutral site game to a traditional home/away game. We may change home/away team designations in these cases.

Other Sportradar products may publish schedules at different times and use different fixture management workflows. They may (for neutral-site games) display different home/away team designations.



Scoring
