There’s a great community of data scientists on the Internet and that’s how I originally came across Aaron Barzilai. Now Aaron has launched herhoopstats.com, a site that aspires to be the Ken Pom of women’s college basketball. Since Richard Deitsch is so knowledgeable about women’s college hoops I asked him to join in.
Topics discussed include:
— the path from advanced degrees in mechanical engineering to data analytics.
— broad overview of herhoopstats.com & @herhoopstats
— who the market for the product is and how the data is used
— thoughts on advanced analytics in general
— some of the challenges of launching and growing herhoopstats.com
Aaron’s personal Twitter is @basketballvalue
