H1580: Advanced Statistics in Basketball in Splash! Spring 2011 (Apr. 16 - 17, 2011)
This course will focus on utilizing advanced statistics, such as PER, win shares, and true shooting percentage to determine the efficiency of players that are known as "superstars" in the NBA. We will attempt to determine whether players like Kobe Bryant are truly clutch under pressure by delving into these statistics. We will also look into the MVP race and whether advanced statistics should be used in determining this award. This will also be an interactive class where we will play basketball and attempt to calculate our own statistics to bridge the gap between perception and reality.
