Spy draws on various sources to compile a comprehensive list of daily games, including Ultimate College Softball, ESPN/NCAA, softballscoresnow, Gametracker and reports by teams. Spy has used the UCS format for years, and finds it the most reliable. Spy adds games and especially scores from other sources.
BTW: Gametracker really sucks. Almost every day, it posts a game played as much as a week before; eg, tonight they posted the Baylor-OU game from a week before.
