Sportcheck for Windows — Basketball Edition
Inventory those basketball cards you — or your kids — have been collecting with Sportcheck. Don’t let the interface fool you. Although it’s not the most intuitive you’ll ever use, this program packs a punch when it comes to functionality. Easily add card sets and individual cards from popular sets including Fleer, Collectors’ Choice, Hoops and Metal. Choose the condition of each card in a set, from Good to Mint. You can even view a list of rising and falling „stars,“ or cards that are gaining or losing value.

Uniscout Pro+ Demo
Track basketball statistics for your community league team, or your favorite pro team, with this handy program. With an easy-to-learn interface, you can enter names of team members and track their statistics including games played, points scored, shot percentages and more. This app even lets you choose between English and French as the display language, a big plus for French speakers. The English is a bit clunky, but I found it charming. This demo version is fully functional, but displays a reminder to purchase the software any time you use any menu item. This nag screen became fairly annoying during my first use of the program. The registered version includes additional features that give you tactical comparisons, fast-break stats and faster runtime for actions.
