Colorado State University's men's basketball has implemented a new, high-tech player tracking system called SportVU. It's used regularly in the National Basketball Association, but only four teams at the college level have the technology. It uses six cameras, positioned in the rafters of the arena, to track individual players and provide advanced analytics and statistics, like how fast a player runs. Willie Glover is the video coordinator for the CSU Rams, and he says that SportVU has given the Rams a "competitive advantage."

Glover spoke with CPR's Andrea Dukakis as part of our regular sports coverage.
