The @SEC will implement a collaborative process for instant replay for the 2017-18 conference season

Birmingham, Ala. - Southeastern Conference will implement a collaborative process for instant replay in the sport of men's basketball as the 2017-18 conference season begins. Under this upgraded system for instant replay reviews, personnel operating from SEC Headquarters will assist the game officials for all monitor reviews in conference games.

"The implementation of collaborative replay in men's basketball continues the SEC's commitment to use the best-available resources to support correct outcomes when replay is used," SEC Commissioner Greg Sankey said. "This update to our replay review process is expected to more effectively support the Conference's men's basketball officiating program and build on the positive results we have experienced in football officiating through the use of technology."

In June of 2017, the NCAA approved an experimental rule at the request of the SEC that will allow a conference to utilize a collaborative Instant Replay review process for all conference contests in the 2017-18 season. This collaboration will be limited to only those plays that are reviewable under NCAA Playing Rule 11. All reviews will be initiated by game officials, who maintain final decision-making authority. The SEC is the only conference utilizing a collaborative replay process this season.

Terry Moore, a veteran NCAA official with 30 years of experience, will assume the role of Coordinator of Men's Basketball Replay...

Q-2: Will the new collaborative replay system slow down the instant replay process when a game is stopped for instant replay review?
A: The live feeds going into the SEC Video Center in Birmingham should make video reviews more time efficient. On many of the plays that may be reviewed under NCAA Playing Rules, the process may begin before the officiating crew reaches the scorers' table.

Q-3: Will the process be centralized or collaborative? What is the difference?
A: While there will be an element of both, the model will be collaborative in nature. There will be a centralized video center dedicated to instant replay that will have real-time direct communication with the officiating crews in the arena at all 14 member institutions.

Q-4: Where will this centralized video room be located?
A: The collaborative replay system will be operated from the SEC Video Center at SEC Headquarters.
