Cheats, Codes & FAQs

Hot Keys

Make sure you utilize hot keys on the direction pad (D-pad) and change up your offenses and defenses accordingly. Hot keys lets gamers switch from a man-to-man to a zone defense (or any other defense formation available) with a simple tap of the directional pad.

Roundball Classic

Playing the roundball classic will help gamers decide on which recruits they should go after in the off-season. Although the games recruiting is based on probabilities (persistence, points allocated, and strength of program).

Freekstyle Control

This is an innovative invention from the NBA Live franchise. It lets gamers use specialty moves (cross-ups, keep-away) by moving the right-analog stick in a certain direction. This might not be necessary when playing the computer but proves to be imperative when playing friends and showing them up for bragging rights.

Real Life College Basketball

If you are a hardcore college basketball fan and you want to get the true college basketball experience with this EA Sports title then remember the differences between college basketball and pro basketball. Unfortunately this game relies on the NBA Live engine. In college basketball the shooting accuracies are much lower (so lower your shooting accuracy in the game through the options menu). Most college players are erratic therefore lowering every rating in the options menu will give the game more of a college feel.

Top Seed in NCAA Tournament

In order to receive the top seed in the tournament you must have a good RPI and conference record.

Shot Selection

Shoot three pointers with good outside shooter, but remember driving to the hoop and scoring lay ups and dunks are far more effective and consistent. Don't try to match your opponents three pointers because you will find yourself in a hole quickly.

Break the backboard

Simply build up the meter until it flashes, then dunk the ball.
