RYAN GIRARDOT (@EPLAYryan)
Ryan has been in sports administration for nearly half of his life, founded the Shamrock Basketball Association (SBA), moving from his driveway up to operating in 10 of state's top markets simultaneously, until its 2011 acquisition by Chicago-based Sports Monster Corporation. There, he acted as National Basketball Director and National Business Development Director. Since then, he's co-founded EPLAY, Inc., where he is the CEO. EPLAY is on a global mission to build a database of validated basketball statistics it curates, distributes, and analyzes to level the competitive playing field.

DAN DICKEY (@Hoops_Nerd)
Dan is an Arizona alum that's passionate about basketball. Through his Hoops Nerd blog (HoopsNerd.com), he's been providing detailed projections and analysis of players and prospects for over 15 years - with great results. His experience includes, among many other things, time spent working on retainer as a draft analysis consultant for an NBA team. He recently joined the EPLAY team to oversee its E-Score and ProViews projects.
PRODUCER MIKE LAMPKIN
Mike is a basketball lover and long-time AAU coach that's just now learning the ins and outs of analytics while holding down the production. Whether it's booking guests, planning recording sessions, or racking up W's from the coaches' box, Mike is the go-to-guy. He may need some convincing to get more active on social media though...
