Basketball: Basic use of statistics in basketball
Posted on Sunday, March 14, 2010

Many students in Danish high schools have to write assignments combining two or more subjects. For many basketball players with a knack for math as well an obvious choice is to do a statistical analysis of some sort relating to basketball.

While there is an abundance of material on statistics, I have not been able to find something basketball specific. High school students do need some guidance to translate the abstract statistics described in the book into a hands-on application in basketball.

During the Autumn of 2009 two players asked for help and you can find the resulting note in Danish here.
