Defeating the Stigma of Analytics

Analytics is one of the fastest growing aspects of the sports industry, but it doesn’t come without opposition.  Many sports personnel outside of the analytics community are against this movement in large part due to a breakdown in communication. This presentation explains how to speak the sports language and relay important findings to those without an analytical background.

Johnny Carver is a sports business student working for the University of Arkansas men's basketball team. Johnny has NBA experience as a basketball operations intern and with other teams through remote basketball analytics consulting. He is looking for opportunities to gain more experience, and is open and willing to network with anyone involved with the NBA.
