Former Syracuse star Roosevelt Bouie & former University of Rochester and Hobart Coach Mike Neer used the magnetic whiteboard as a visual tool to educate and explain to the audience zone defense and other key plays in Syracuse University basketball games.

One of Magnatag Visible Systems’ custom whiteboards can be seen weekly on “Orange Squeeze, ”a 30-minute Syracuse basketball recap show on Time Warner Cable SportsChannel.

The show is seen throughout New York State and features former Syracuse star Roosevelt Bouie and former University of Rochester and Hobart Head Coach Mike Neer. Neer and Bouie use the magnetic whiteboard as a visual tool to educate and explain the finer points of Syracuse basketball. “Orange Squeeze” airs every Thursday at 10 p.m.

Patrick Sloan, Content Manager at Time Warner Cable SportsChannel needed a solution to recapping and displaying key plays of the game. Magnatag worked with Sloan to solve his problem of creating a visual for the audience.

“The production of the boards blew us away and given the great service we got and that we could get a customized Jim Boeheim Syracuse Court, we knew Magnatag was the company to buy from,” said Sloan.

Sloan added he’s also looking at using the customized whiteboard in other Syracuse basketball programming.

In 2014 alone, Magnatag supplied to athletic programs of more than 50 universities and 25 professional sports teams with products to help them manage their operations.
