"We are always looking at new ways to create a more authentic gameplay experience for our fans and this new partnership with a recognized industry leader is significant," said Peter Moore, President, EA Sports. "This partnership enables us to replicate with precision the playing style of every Division I school in NCAA Basketball 09 this year."
