Video Express for Basketball: How to Upload a Game's Boxscore and Play-by-Play

Modified on Fri, 5 Jul at 5:08 PM

In this article, we will discuss how to upload a box score and play-by-play in the Synergy Sports Video Express application.


In order to complete Phase II logging, Synergy requires a HTML version of the game's box score and play-by-play. Uploading the HTML version of the play-by-play and box score for the game you are uploading will ensure your game are logged in a timely fashion. You can upload the HTML box score and play-by-play before, during, or after you upload the game. We recommend doing it at the same time you upload your game.

We can only accept HTML file format for the box score and play-by-play. We can not use .pdf file formats. Typically your teams' Sports Information Director can provide this for you.

In order to ensure that all aspects of your game are logged we request the play-by-play include substitutions and offensive rebound information.
