Abstract

The utilization of statistical methods in sports is growing rapidly. Sports teams use statistical analyses to evaluate players and game strategies, and sports associations develop ranking and ratings systems of players and teams. The evolution of the application of statistics to sports continues to be enhanced with extensive collaboration and interaction between sports analysts and professional statisticians. Unfortunately, opportunities for this collaboration are still relatively uncommon, as academic statisticians often work in isolation developing statistical methods for sports applications, while sports organizations often do not have access to well-trained statistical expertise and cutting edge statistical tools for the analysis of sports data.
