Ball Without Bias (also known as ‘BWB) is our computer based scoring system that we use to evaluate player performance at all our events and is the system players need to score well on to advance in the competition.  We call it Ball Without Bias, because it is based purely on statistics, which removes any bias out of whether or not a player progresses through to the next round.

We have a team of statisticians watching your every move, recording everything you do statistically. Every shot, rebound, assist, steal, block, turnover, foul, missed shot, team win, team loss, hustle play and degree of difficulty play you make is recorded and entered into the BWB player efficiency stats evaluator. BWB adds all your positive stats, takes away all of your negative stats, leaving you with an individual score each game you play. All of your stats are added up on the day and automatically entered into an overall leaderboard with the other players on the day. The top 10 scores at the end of your session advance through to the next round. This simply means, whether you make it or not is entirely up to you. If you perform well, you advance, no matter who you are or where you’ve played.
