Sport has grown into one of the largest and most profitable businesses in the United States. With gambling now coming onto the scene more than ever before on top of player salaries in professional leagues and collegiate head coaches’ salaries sky-rocketing, there is more pressure than ever being put on officials to get things right and ensure the integrity of games. A tool utilized in most major competition at the professional and collegiate level is instant replay. Instant replay is something officials can use to analyze a previous ruling to determine if the right call was made or if something needs to be changed. Many fans of sport are aware of replay, but few know of the about some of its intricacies of its historical development. Thus, the purpose of this investigation was to highlight major developments of instant replay in collegiate basketball: 1) where did instant replay come from and why is it important?, 2) how is instant replay administered in games and what is the process?, and 3) how can technology in sport such as instant replay limit human error?
