DURHAM, N.C. (AP) -- Duke men's and women's basketball teams are trading in their paper playbooks for iPads. 

The school says it's the nation's first college basketball program to use the Apple gadgets for everything from scouting reports to practice and game video. 

Men's associate head coach Steve Wojciechowski says Duke is always trying to equip its players and staff with top-of-the-line resources. Women's coach Joanne P. McCallie says the iPads "can help us get better and more efficient in all areas." 

Each iPad will be loaded with practice schedules, weekly plans, scouting reports, stats and videos. They will have tracking software installed so they can be erased if they are stolen or lost. The iPads will belong to university but the players may buy them at market price upon graduation.
