Upper-echelon basketball players are widely considered to be the most athletic players in all the major sports. The physical gifts on display at college and professional games inspire awe and wonder but various mental aspects of the sport should not be overlooked. Preliminary studies MVR has conducted with the cooperation of a National Basketball Association team have demonstrated positive relations between individual differences in cognitive functioning and objectively measured, on-the-court performance in basketball. With the help of proprietary assessment and analytics capabilities, MVR was able to show that high scores in mental visualization, abstract reasoning, and motivational orientation were directly tied to such crucial basketball statistics as field goals made, total points scored, defensive rebounding, assists, and steals. MVR has the tools and techniques to provide unique insights into everything from individual on-court performance to game analysis to recruiting or draft recommendations. Moreover, recent advances in technology and neurological understanding promise exciting breakthroughs relating to player training in visual-spatial ability.
