Sports Analytics & Research
Sports analytics and research are at the forefront of the sports industry. Our Research department formed this year to support the growing trend and provide members with the opportunity to pursue interests in the field.
In our inaugural semester, research team members have split up into groups to undertake sports analytics challenges. We have used the beginning of the year to pinpoint research questions and identify data sources. We are excited to develop findings in the spring.
The Basketball group is working on developing models for prospect projection and broad questions, such as the construction of super teams. They use data from current draft prospects and NBA roster construction and statistics. The Baseball team is using pitch data and game logs to analyze successful pitching characteristics and developing pitching gameplans for specific pitchers and teams. Finally, the Fantasy Sports group is analyzing lineup and drafting strategies to optimize selections.
