Breaking Down the Film: College Basketball Analytics

Use of analytics is growing among college basketball programs, but because of coaches' understanding and limited budgets, college coaches can be reluctant to use analytics to help their program win games. This presentation explains how analytics practitioners can apply advanced statistics to improve coaches' game strategy and decision making skills. Attendees will learn how to communicate analytics findings to their intended audience, demonstrate how film can be an effective tool to use with analytics, and discuss ways analytics can be used with player development.

Phillip Leibham is a 2018 graduate of Lewis University in Romeoville, Ill., working three years in college basketball analytics. Leibham served as an analytics intern for the Loyola University Chicago men's basketball team for the 2017-2018 season, and was previously an analytics consultant for the Northern Illinois University women's basketball team.
