For this project I worked with Colin and Alec. We started by breaking down all of the percentages for each player. These included short catch completion, long catch completion and short defense percentage. After that we found z-scores for those three categories. by combining all of those z-scores we were able to come up a with an overall power ranking. To check for consistency in our top players we created histograms. The histograms showed us that some of our top players were really only good in one skill. We used this information to draft a team that we felt comfortable with and in the end we won our class tournament.
In this project we kind of combined several things that we learned in the class. We learned how to utilize data and put it into z-scores. We also learned how to place that data into charts to help support our reasoning. Finally I learned a lot more about Excel than I knew previously.
