Introduction

Sportradar’s NCAAWB API offers a comprehensive suite of game and seasonal stats to power your basketball experiences.

All game data feeds update in real-time as games are played and are compiled via Sportradar‘s expert in-house operators. Real-time scoring is provided for all Division I games with live play-by-play for select games. Click here for additional coverage information.

Primary feeds will return schedules, standings, team info, and real-time scores. Additional feeds provide complimentary data, including team rosters and Top 25 rankings.

Authentication is required for all API calls.

API Map

To best utilize the NCAA Women's Basketball API, you will need several parameters to create your API calls. The map below illustrates how you can obtain the parameters you need.

The primary feeds require only a date or season to call the endpoints. Those feeds provide Game, Team, or Player Ids which can be used to generate the game, team, and player feeds. All of the other feeds require no variables.

Tournament IDs

Tournament Ids are only listed in the Tournament List feed. Use the Tournament List to get the Ids required to access the Tournament Schedule and Tournament Summary.
