Wilson Sporting Goods Co. has extended the company’s longstanding partnership with the NCAA for basketball through the 2020-21 season with an additional two-year option. Under terms of the agreement, Wilson will supply teams competing in the Association’s Divisions I, II and III Men’s and Women’s Basketball Championships with the official NCAA Solution Game Basketball.

“Basketball is one of the most prolific college sports played today, and we are committed to the thousands of NCAA student-athletes and coaches who are pursuing their dreams to do our part in making these sports exciting, fun and rewarding to play,” said Kevin Murphy, general manager of team sports at Wilson. “At the center of this collaboration with the NCAA is our work to create next-generation equipment that will help players reach their performance goals and raise their level of play.”

“Partners like Wilson are invaluable to the NCAA, as they provide superior brand quality and innovative equipment for our championships,” said Dan Gavitt, NCAA senior vice president of basketball. “Our partnership with Wilson is unique, as it gives student-athletes the opportunity to utilize top-level equipment that we believe adds to an overall positive and memorable championship experience.”

Wilson has provided the official basketball of the NCAA since 2002. Wilson and the NCAA currently collaborate across five sports, including basketball, soccer, beach volleyball, football and tennis.
