2023-02-10: Play Index Update.

We are in the process of moving all of the CBB Play Index content to Stathead.com/Basketball. Sometime soon after the season, we will be removing the tools on this page. We don't have a firm timeline for the launch of CBB on Stathead, but we fully intend to have it available well before the start of the 2023-24 season for both men's and women's basketball.

Because we will soon be taking down this page, we have not added coverage for women's stats to these tools. We apologize for this omission, but the additional development time required would likely take us well into the NCAA tourney making it of dubious value to our users given we are already planning to sunset these tools after the tournament.

Receive an announcement when CBB on Stathead.com/Basketball has launched.
