Well the predictions were close here College Basketball Analysis Powered by SAP Lumira & Predictive Analytics but Florida is not winning. Neither is my team Kansas.
I found this link interesting The Big Data Behind Your College Basketball Brackets &laquo; A Smarter Planet Blog A Smarter Planet Blog > because following my “home” team years ago in bracket selection I won the bracket when Kansas unexpectedly made the Final Four.
This is what makes it difficult to predict. I say Kentucky has momentum going in but Connecticut unexpectedly beat Florida on Saturday. Interesting I saw greg misiorek say that no Connecticut players are from Connecticut.
This time instead putting all the measures on one chart, I separated out the “Strength of Schedule” and Ratings Percentage Index (RPI):
Strength of Schedule is in green and Kentucky has .60 versus UConn’s .57
