'College Hoops 2K6' (PS2) Dribbles Into Stores

The professional basketball game is filled with big contracts, bigger egos, and star-studded highlight reels of high-flying dunks. This is perhaps why college basketball is admired throughout the land as the last place to experience the purest state of basketball-- where good coaching is necessary for direction, teamwork is essential for success, and rivalries raise the competitive spirit to new heights. No college basketball game exemplifies the passion and pageantry of collegiate basketball like College Hoops 2K6, where every year prized traditions are revisited, new records are made, and the fire of school spirit is rekindled.

New features to the highly acclaimed franchise such as an enhanced Legacy mode, underclassmen recruiting, high school camps and virtual coaches combine to make College Hoops 2K6 the most comprehensive college basketball game yet.

Additional enhancements include:

  • Player Disposition, where the playing time of every player must be carefully balanced to maximize the confidence and focus for each player.
  • Coach's Clipboard, to stress the importance of good coaching with the ability to give players specific direction during timeouts.
  • High School Camp, a feature that extends the college basketball experience by letting gamers scout top performing high school players through camp visits and drills.
  • Five in-game commentators delivering insightful commentary from Verne Lundquist as the play-by-play announcer, Bill Raftery for color commentary, Bonnie Bernstein reporting from the sidelines and Greg Gumbel and Clark Kellogg as tournament presenters.
  • Real college coaches featuring notables such as Roy Williams, Tubby Smith, Jim Boeheim and Lute Olson.

College Hoops 2K6 for the PS2 and Xbox is rated "E" for Everyone and available in North American retail stores for $29.99.
