About the Book
"If you don't buy this book, you're not trying as a college hoops fan." — Andy Glockner, SI.com
In the four years since its inception, Basketball Prospectus has quickly become required reading for anyone who's passionate about college basketball and wants to better understand both the game and their favorite team. Now the kind of Prospectus hoops insight that the New York Times has called "indispensable" has been collected into one
definitive book for the coming year, the College Basketball Prospectus 2011-12.
Combining the most advanced statistical analysis with intensive scouting and an inquisitive love of the game, the College Basketball Prospectus contains previews of every Division I team. You'll also find original essays on everything from forecasting the 2012 draft and ranking all 344 D-I teams in the preseason to defining the role of recruiting and explaining the strange persistence of the Ratings Percentage Index. Prospectus takes note of sound bites when appropriate but is above all based on on-court realities.
Whether you're a fan of the A-10 or A-Sun, SWAC or WAC, Big West, Mountain West, Great West, or West Coast, the College Basketball Prospectus is required reading.
"Basketball Prospectus is a fantastic tool for anyone in college basketball. It's not just some guy's opinion. It's analysis based on hard data that makes you really think about the game."
— Eric Reveno, Head Coach, University of Portland
"Without Basketball Prospectus even the most trained eye would fail to discern every critical aspect of a team or player. I rely on Prospectus to fill in gaps, persuade me to view the game differently, and to bolster or change my beliefs based on fact and not perception. Prospectus presents true team and player values, makes reliable projections, and makes it all easy to understand so any fan can get more out of the game."
— Jay Bilas, ESPN Basketball Analyst
"Basketball Prospectus is a must-read for any hard-core hoops fan. I always keep a copy handy. It's the kind of in-depth substantive analysis that's getting harder to find these days."
— Seth Davis, College Basketball Reporter, Sports Illustrated and CBS Sports
