Client: Personal Project

I am huge Kansas Jayhawk fan and thus a huge college basketball fan. As an information designer my mind is always racing with ideas about the numbers behind the game.

While watching the NCAA Tournament I started to notice that despite all the ink that the Cinderella teams get for upsetting the power programs it always seems to be the same handful of schools that make it to the end.

So I did some research on the how a school’s seeding (tournament ranking) effected their chances of winning. I mapped a school’s tournament seed over the last ten years to see who had the best odds each year of advancing.
