In blind playtesting, eight out of ten players prefer the Wilson NCAA Game Ball over traditional balls.? Behind the NCAA Game Ball?s regulation weight and size are exclusive technologies that improve player performance in heated competition. The basketball?s patented cover is made of moisture-absorbing composite leather. While other balls become slippery when wet, the NCAA Game Ball?s cover absorbs moisture and grows tackier. Grip is further improved with composite leather laid-in channels, which absorb moisture and are 50 percent deeper than conventional channels. The basketball is also constructed with Cushion Core Technology, combining a low-density sponge rubber with a durable butyl rubber for a softer, more positive touch. Together, the cover, channels and core make the NCAA Game Ball three-times more palmable when wet than a traditional basketball.
