March Madness is a great time to hone your basketball skills.

And to walk-on as a grad transfer and hope that no one notices because they're all too mesmerized by your jumper.

One can dream. And one can also help their chances with a smart hoop that tracks their stats and provides pro-level training programs.

Huupe is a new invention in the basketball arts that wants to do for basketball what Peloton did for cycling. The regulation-size goal is equipped with a high-definition screen for a backboard, which lets you train with pros, track your performance, and compete against other Huupe users around the world.

Huupe is available to preorder now and should begin shipping later this year. You've got a couple options: the classic or the pro. The former lets you stream videos as you play, while the latter is loaded with those extra features, like shot tracking technology and advanced analytics. You can also choose between a wall-mounted version or a goal that's situated on an adjustable pole.

The contraption gives you access to a library of on-demand training content featuring hundreds of professionally led programs. You can also book live one-on-one sessions with those same trainers, who can put you through rigorous workouts or assist with your fundamentals. As you go, the smart hoop tracks everything you do, from shooting percentage and shot trajectory, to your positioning, release time and vertical jump. It then analyzes the data and gives you feedback on how you can improve your game.

Huupe also lets you virtually connect with other users, so you can challenge your friends to a game of HORSE or other shooting games anywhere WiFi is available.

When you’re not working on your skills, you can use that same backboard/screen to stream sporting events or other content on platforms like YouTube, Netflix and HBO. So, in that sense, it's like a smart TV.

But one that won't break when you throw a ball at it.
