Chicago St Stat Error Leads to Sportsbook Refunds
Made the front page of ESPN... whoops! These things do happen and usually they are caught by the 'official scorer' before the stat input has 'finalized' their information for the NCAA.

Quote:A stat-keeping error that impacted the final score and point spread of a mid-major college basketball game Saturday was spotted by bettors, prompting some sportsbooks to pay out winning wagers on both teams.

The mistake occurred late in the second half of the Illinois State-Chicago State game. A made free throw by Illinois State's Josiah Strong with 49 seconds to play was erroneously recorded as a miss. Illinois State, a 9.5 or 10-point favorite at most sportsbooks, went on to win by nine -- 80-71 -- without the made free throw counting.

Chicago State's athletic department on Monday had identified the discrepancy and was working with the NCAA to correct the score. The NCAA did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

The sports communications departments for colleges typically track statistics and transmit the data to the NCAA's official data disseminator, Genius Sports.
