The purpose of this study was to examine the impact of recording and sharing defensive data with the players on a basketball team concerning defensive play during a basketball season. A quasi-experimental without randomization design was used. An instrument was developed by the researcher to record steals, deflections, and turnovers of the basketball team. The data did not show an increase in player defensive productivity each game. Additional studies are needed to validate whether data can motivate individuals in basketball.
