Basketball Prospectus: Unfiltered Everything Else is Fluff.

Daily Ten: Weekly 25

Filed under: Uncategorized — Bradford Doolittle @ 3:22 pm

There is only one thing you can be certain about: This will not be the last time I fall behind on updating the database that generates NBAPET ratings. The NBA sets up its schedule so that is seems like games just keep coming night after night. They never stop. The leaves fall from the trees. The ground gets hard, then is buried in ice and snow. Eventually that all melts and the trees come alive again. The winter coats go back into the attic. And still, all the while, the NBA games keep coming — 1,230 of them. It’s a beautiful thing, and a lot to keep track track of.

I’ll be finishing up this week’s Prospectus Hits List this evening. Watch for that later in the week. Beyond that, please accept my best wishes for a safe and happy holiday weekend. The “happy” part of that sentiment does NOT apply KU football fans. See you at Arrowhead.

In the news

  • I don’t have nearly enough programming ability and/or remotely enough time to do gRATE and Wins Produced metrics for college basketball. I can, however, track those items for Mizzou basketball. That info can be found here. Also on that page is my live blog from the Xavier-Missouri game.
