Boys basketball computer challenge: Score Czar vs. MaxPreps
If you haven’t had the chance, take a look at the piece by Scott Sandsberry of the Yakima Herald on the wacky world of WIAA state seeding process.
In the piece, Sandsberry suggests Washington follow Oregon’s model and use computer rankings to seed the state tournaments. But which computer ranking would Washington use?
Well, we have a couple to chose from. There are the rankings of the Score Czar, from Vancouver’s Scott Odiorne. And there are rankings from MaxPreps. The WIAA already has an agreement with WIAA to keep standings and such.
But we want the best one. So, we are putting the Score Czar and MaxPreps rankings up against each other, head-to-head.
We’ll track the results of both rankings, starting with the boys above.
