The only college basketball game on the PlayStation 2 computer entertainment system in 2001, and the only basketball game to bring you real, live, 3D rendered cheerleaders! Take that to the bank, with your pressure D and jive-talking inside moves -- this game is calling those who say they're "keeping it real," phony chumps. Some of the new features in the game include reworked player models, 3D backgrounds and animated crowds, a plethora of options, updated controls, enhanced artificial intelligence and all-new play-by-play commentary by announcer Quinn Buckner. In addition, the game engine is closely related to 989's other b-ball title, NBA Shootout. And of course, college hoops fans can play through an entire stat-filled season or head straight to the big tournament in hopes of winning the championship.
• Revolutionary player graphics
10 different player models mean every type of player imaginable is reproduced in amazing detail. Every player has exact skin color, height, weight, body style, and facial animations. Players wear T-shirts under their jerseys, tattoos, variable sock lengths, armbands, and headbands.
• More than 1,000 motion-captured moves
You get every type of dunk, shot, pass, block, and steal possible. Dunks include one-handed follow-up jams, reverses, and crowd-raising alley-oops. See players box out and post up on each other. New passes include the one-handed bounce pass, the no-look pass and the behind-the-back dish. Cross-over dribble, spin move, stick the turn-around-fade-away, sink a hook shot, or lay-up-dish to a big man. Drop step to the finger roll and watch your defender fall to the floor to take the charge. Raise the roof and fist-pump after big plays.
• New 60-fps gameplay and realism
This is the smoothest player control ever, with 60-fps gameplay. Dynamic rim physics means the ball will bounce off the rim and backboard in a variety of ways. An improved Touch Shooting meter gives you total control of your shot accuracy.
