Northeast Region / Advanced team/player stats with scouting reports
« on: May 29, 2016, 01:04:26 pm »
I've added all 2015-16 D3 Men's advanced stats/ratings to my database. Here's a sample report:

http://nationalsportsrankings.com/index.php?option=com_teamplayer&task=load_magic&magic=7026

If you click a players name you'll get a chart displaying some of their advanced stats/ratings.

Click the projected lineup efficiency rankings tab on top and you'll get a listing of over 250 lineups that the system ranks in order of player/team performance.

To view all of the other teams you'll need to register for a free username and password on the main page of the site: (in red called members area)

I've put together advanced stat pages for each of the 62 teams selected to the 2014-15 D3 Men's NCAA Basketball Tournament. Teams are listed alphabetically here:

(I did the best I could finding the most recent stats update. Even if a team is missing a game there's still plenty of data to give you an idea of how each team/player are doing this year)

WOW - lots of work.  Thanks for doing this.  Would love to see WPI and I am sure you would get a ton of interest from the very active NESCAC posters if you did any of the top NESCAC teams.

Where are you looking to gets 'stat feeds" from.  The powers that be here on the board or directly from the schools?

Thanks. I've just added WPI. The teams are listed alphabetically so they are near the bottom of the main page here:

I've contacted a bunch of websites, coaches, the NCAA, and stat companies. So far I've received little or no help with adding D3 teams/acquiring the stats. (Either working with another company or purchasing them) I haven't had any success other than adding them myself team by team. Which is impossible to update on a daily basis.

I'm hoping through this forum I can make a few contacts to maybe help with the project going forward. That is if enough people are interested in the team reports.

Check out WPI. I'm always interested in comparing the numbers to people who've actually watched these teams and have their own opinions on the players.

Northeast Region / 2014-15 D3 advanced team/player stats

I've created advanced stat pages for NCAA Basketball teams. Here's a sample team from this year to look at: Wesleyan (CT)

http://nationalsportsrankings.com/index.php?option=com_teamplayer&task=load_magic&magic=8308

To see all of last year's D3 teams go here and select 2013 and Mens NCAA:

http://nationalsportsrankings.com/index.php?option=com_teamplayer

I'm still inquiring about access to all of the teams stats to do these reports but so far I'm finding little help.

I don't mind adding some D3 teams each week, until the end of the season, if people are interested in a certain teams stats to look at. I'll update 10 or so a week based on user feedback.

If anyone is interested in seeing a team post the team and I'll create the page.

It's the best I can do until I can gain access to a stat feed to run my reports. Doing it manually takes way too long for just 1 team to run every team right now.

Comments, questions, thoughts are welcome.

If anyone is interested in seeing a team, make sure they have at least 3 games played this year, post the team and I'll create the page.

I've added individual team charts for each player. Click a team then click a player to see a chart like the one below.

Just added a stat based lineup ranking for each team. That's over 250+ combinations based on the top 10 players I have listed on every team page. Here's a sample team. (If you click the Projected Lineup Stats tab the results will show up at the bottom of the report)

http://nationalsportsrankings.com/index.php?option=com_teamplayer&task=load_magic&magic=4276

For all other teams go here:

Lineup ranking takes a few seconds to load but will show up at the bottom of the report.

I've put together a 1 click advanced stat page, with an auto-generated scouting report, for every D3 team. (Using last year's stats)

http://nationalsportsrankings.com/index.php?option=com_teamplayer

Once you click a teams name you'll get team and player stats/ratings. Below that is a "scouting report" that is generated solely on each players season numbers.

I thought some would be interested.

Thanks. It's been a big undertaking to get it to this point. I'm working on being able to get the data after every game so users will be able see the stats/report after every contest. That is the next big hurdle.

I used this type of set up to run numbers for a division 2 team this past season. I sent the coach a scouting report/advanced stat sheet similar to this, after each game, and the head coach thought they were very helpful.

Early season numbers will skew the ratings some. I think after 4-6 games you'll have a good idea of a team or players strengths and weaknesses.

I don't know if anyone is interested but I've put together similar numbers for the Division 2 Men's tournament.

Thanks again for the feedback guys. At some point in the off season I'll start doing the other teams, not in the tournament, one conference at a time. I'll post anything else I do, regarding the team/player stats, in this thread.

I've always said we needed some sort of advanced metric like Ken Pom for D-3 for teams, and even players. The issue is the lackadaisical pace of the posting of box scores and stats by some programs.

I guess that's what I'd like to do. (have team pages available for all schools) At least something where you can get an idea of what a team/player is like "statistically".

When I contacted someone from the NCAA about updating their site I didn't get very far. They have a page with each teams offensive numbers if you can find it. I asked him if they had a similar page for their defensive stats so I can put together some basic advanced stats and this was the response I got:

" At this point the defensive numbers are not part of the trends report and youd have to dig into each team individually to get more detail on that.  At this point there are no plans to make a major overhaul to that page for this season but we tweak these pages each year so its possible we could do something like that in the future."

The gentlemen was very nice but I can promise you making a nice stat site is very low on their priority list.

Thanks for the feedback. I pulled the overall season stats from various sites. It did take some time. The hardest part was creating the calculations once I could get the actual team/player stats in the format I wanted.

I'm hoping, with some help, next year I can somehow find an easier way to get the stats from the team pages to my spreadsheet.

The hard part is mostly done now. My next goal is to reach out to people who can help take each teams regular season stats and help me put them in the format I would need so I could run reports after every game.

Probably a pipe dream..... but I know there are some smart people out there that would value some of the information and may help me out.

If anyone has any suggestions going forward I appreciate the feedback.

I know it's a bit overwhelming. I figured I'd add as much information as possible, to start, then trim it once I found out what people were actually interested in. I'll also try to eliminate some of the numbers that may be showing inaccuracies with what may actually be happening on the floor.

Most people know their own teams, that they follow, better than most scouts. I was hoping to put some numbers behind the teams to see if they match what others are seeing. I hope to generate automated scouting reports for the players and teams, in the future, so that the page will be more user friendly.
