2017 NCAA Rankings

For this year’s NCAA rankings, I’ve set up python web crawlers to grab Joe Lunardi’s latest bracket projections as well as game log statistics from sports-reference.com.  From there, I built an Alteryx workflow recomputing rankings to reflect margin of victory and to reward stronger performance in recent games. Methodology is outlined here.

The purpose of these rankings is to find instances where the selection committee over- or under-seeds teams. I’ll post updates as we get closer to tournament time.
