Statisticians, let’s start recording

A Basketball Statistician is a game official who is responsible for recording all basketball actions (e.g. rebound, assist, block etc) for both teams during a game, often working in a team of callers, inputters and observers. As a statistician, you help improve the play of the game, supplying each team a copy of the stats between play so coaches can identify scoring patterns, player productivity, leading scorers and rebounders.
