Women’s Lineup Data with Top-50 Info Added

I have also completed the women’s data for the top-50, including the new addition of records against top-50 opponents.

Specifically, I have added two column at the end to display the 3+S and DUBS for teams versus top-50 opponents. This was run very early Wednesday morning and includes any matches input by that that.

Legend
S1 = singles line #1
S2 = singles line #2
S3 = singles line #3
S4 = singles line #4
S5 = singles line #5
S6 = singles line #6
D1 = doubles line #1
D2 = doubles line #2
D1 = doubles line #3
3+S = How many times won-lost at least 3 singles lines
DUBS = Record winning doubles point
T50S+ = W/L of at least 3 singles v. top-50
T50D = doubles record v top-50

Men’s Lineup Data with a Top-50 Twist

I am taking a break from building a bracket to release some lineup data since that appeared to be such a hit last week.

The data is pretty much the same, with one twist. I have added two column at the end to display the 3+S and DUBS for teams versus top-50 opponents. Hopefully this will dig a little deeper into how the top teams are doing.

The reason I say hopefully is because I am writing this intro as I actually run the data. I tested it for a few schools, just to make sure I had it coded correctly, but plan on posting this as soon as it is done. That way I can get to the women’s data a bit faster this week.

S1 = singles line #1

How do you build a bracket? Building the pods – placing the 4’s

So we have figured out who is in. We have seeded the teams. We know how far away they are from each other.

What do we do next?

PODCASTING!

No, not really podcasting, but that’s kind of a cool name for building pods. Too bad it’s already used for something else.

OK, so to build pods, I am going to stick to a couple of rules. A few of these may not be hard and fast NCAA rules, but I think they will serve us well.

Rule 1 – Maximize the number of drives overall (vs. flights aka >400 miles). I tried to optimize this by seeding group, but that doesn’t seem to matter to the NCAA. I would try to optimize 2’s first then 3’s then 4’s. The NCAA would have a different number by seed, but overall we had the same number of drives.

Rule 2 – No schools from the same conference within the same pod. This one sends a bunch of ACC schools to SEC schools and visa versa (especially this year it seems). The more northern of these tend to get shipped to Big Ten schools. This rule is not significant when picking the four seeds, since they are all AQs and do not have any conflicts with the rest of the draw.

Rules 3 – Don’t send schools to the same place they’ve been in the past two years. Not really a rule, but more of a guideline. Definitely avoid the past year. That’s just not very fun or fair for anyone involved. This is usually a problem for the Texas schools and Florida schools, as there are limited driving opportunities.

Using these rules, I tried to put together the start of some pods.

Unfortunately, there are three schools (that can only drive to Michigan and Ohio State: Butler, Valparaiso and Buffalo. This means that one has to fly, no matter what. Buffalo was at Ohio State a year ago, so this year they go to Michigan. Butler has a major airport, so they fly and Valpo heads to Ohio State.

The only school that can drive to Texas A&M is Lamar. They could go to Baylor, but played them already, so I am sending them to College Station.

From there I went to Wake and gave them the lowest-ranked team, Mercer. Then Virginia gets the lowest remaining that can drive, St. Francis.

Denver can go anywhere. They’ve recently been to Cal and UNC. I assume they send them somewhere with a direct flight, and in other sports the NCAA has a sense of humor, so I am sending the Pioneers to Austin. Ricky would love it and the fans would love to see him.

I’m placing Florida A&M in Gainseville since Mercer is already gone. The only place left for Tennessee Tech would be Georgia Tech.

Just to do it, I am sending UNC Wilmington to the mothership, UNC. That leaves Campbell heading to Georgia.

Butler gets a trip to LA to play USC and I am sending Idaho to Cal this time around.

NM State has been to Oklahoma recently, so I am keeping them out west and sending them to UCLA this time. Jackson State to Oklahoma State.

That leaves Marist with a trip from Poughkeepsie to Norman.

picking the fours

Wake Forest – Mercer
Ohio State – Valparaiso
Virginia – St. Francis
Texas – Denver
Oklahoma State – Jackson State
North Carolina – UNC Wilmington
Southern California – Butler
Baylor – Colgate
UCLA – NM State
Oklahoma
Texas A&M – Lamar
California – Idaho
Florida – Florida A&M
Georgia – Campbell
Michigan – Buffalo
Georgia Tech – Tennessee Tech

So there’s half of my draw.

Next time: I select the 2’s or 3’s…

How do you create the bracket? Part 1b

In my post this morning I actually completed the first part of creating a bracket: you have to find out who the teams are and assign them seeds. But once that is done, what do they do?

Let’s assume the season ended last night and use the top-ranked team from all of the AQ conferences to put together the draw. So, the selection of the teams is done. See my earlier post of the magic number.

Next you need to try and figure out how far away the schools are from each other. The NCAA tries to optimize the number of schools that drive vs. fly. For example, here’s a chart showing the distance between all of the first and second seeds. This is because the NCAA attempts to place as many schools within the 400-mile range so they can bus to the site. This data comes from the website the NCAA uses to determine this.

an example of the distance between the #1 and #2 seeds

As you can see, the #1 seeds are along the left hand side of the chart and the #2 seeds are across the top. I have highlighted some of the cells GREEN to signify if they are within the 400 miles and some RED to signify they are in the same conference and cannot travel to the same pod.

I mentioned on Twitter this afternoon that TCU needs to win a few matches now that it appears that Texas, Texas A&M and Baylor have moved very high into the rankings and are very likely to host. If they do not reach the top-16, they would likely have to travel to College Station.

The difference between 1’s and 2’s and 1’s and 4’s is tremendous. All of the #4 seeds are going to be automatic qualifiers, so they will not have any conference restrictions, since they are the only teams from their conference.

Sample of #1 seeds and #4 seeds

If you look closely at schools like Butler, Valpo and Buffalo, they are only within driving distance to Ohio State and Michigan. This would likely mean that 2 of the 3 would go to those places and they other would get shipped someplace further west.

Placing the #3 seeds can be tough. The problem is you have to not only layer them against the #1’s, but also against the #2’s. Fortunately, there are only about half that issue this problem since the rest are AQ’s.

Here’s a look at today’s 1 v 3’s.

A sample of travel distances for #1 seeds and #3 seeds

You really now have most of the data required. So this is how you get started. Now you have to start putting together pods.

Next Time: Let’s put together pods!

It’s never too early to start trying to find the magic number

Every year, there’s a point when someone asks me what the magic number will be to get into the NCAA Tournament without an AQ. I decided this weekend that is is never too early to try and figure out what that number will be.

Of course the tournament brackets will be announced on Tuesday, May 2. When they are announced, 31 schools will receive AQs into the draw on both the men’s and women’s. So with that being said, we know the top-33 get in.

As of this morning, these are the top-ranked schools in each men’s conference, based on my extended live rankings.

CONFERENCE TEAM RANK
American Athletic Conference University of Memphis 28
Atlantic 10 Conference George Washington University 76
Atlantic Coast Conference Wake Forest University 1
Atlantic Sun Conference University of North Florida 52
Big 12 Conference University of Texas 4
Big East Conference Butler University 90
Big Sky Conference University of Idaho 114
Big South Conference Campbell University 80
Big Ten Conference Ohio State University 2
Big West Conference Cal Poly 45
Colonial Athletic Association UNC Wilmington 115
Conference USA Old Dominion University 38
Horizon League Conference Valparaiso University 84
Ivy League Cornell University 17
Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference Marist College 100
Mid-American Conference University at Buffalo 97
Mid-Eastern Athletic Conf. Florida A&M University 169
Missouri Valley Conference Drake University 55
Mountain West Conference Utah State University 48
Northeast Conference St. Francis Univ. (Pennsylvania) 112
Ohio Valley Conference Tennessee Tech University 88
Pacific-12 Conference University of Southern California 7
Southeastern Conference Texas A&M University 11
Southern Conference Mercer University 82
Southland Conference Lamar University 95
Southwestern Athletic Conf. Jackson State University 96
Summit League University of Denver 153
Sun Belt Conference Georgia State University 36
The Patriot League Colgate University 146
West Coast Conference Santa Clara University 57
Western Athletic Conference New Mexico State University 119

So how many of these teams fall in that top 30-40 range to extend the field?

Memphis, Wake Forest, Texas, Ohio State, Cornell, USC, Texas A&M are comfortably within the range. They bump the number up to 40.

Georgia State and Old Dominion in, bumping it to 42.

So 42 is the magic number. That means that schools that like Rice, Washington, Ole Miss, South Alabama and Tulsa, currently in the 40-44 range are in the danger zone.

Of course a lot changes between now and the end of April, but this is a good first run through the current state of affairs.

New Men’s Top-200 – St. Patrick’s Day Special

It has been awhile since I’ve released my men’s singles rankings. Now that we have some matches under our belts, it seemed like a good time. Remember, these also have matches played in the fall between collegians. For a refresher on that, see this link here.

I know I said I would probably release the lineup data again, but feel like I will probably wait and do that after the rankings come out each week.

These are based off anything input into the system by 7 a.m. this morning. There are over 3500 players eligible right now with at least one match played.

I am certain you will also find quite a few anomalies, like why is Norrie still ranked third if he’s undefeated? (That is mostly due to a lack of quality matches). Why is JJ Wolf so low (164)? (again, he only has six matches completed so far)

No matter what, this seems to be a pretty good starting point for finding the top players in the country. It is hard to argue that the top-15 don’t belong there.

My next project with this data is to simulate dual matches with this and play out the brackets, using the players in the lineup as they would show up in this rankings.

Women’s top-50 lineup data – March 14

I decided that each week, after the rankings come out, I will update this data. I will release the women’s information this evening and probably not release the men’s until Friday. This also may not be the best time to release this information, with the top two women’s teams playing right now, Ohio State and Florida, but I thought people may have some time while they are following along.

Just a reminder. This is based off of matches input to the ITA system by this afternoon.

Legend
S1 = singles line #1
S2 = singles line #2
S3 = singles line #3
S4 = singles line #4
S5 = singles line #5
S6 = singles line #6
D1 = doubles line #1
D2 = doubles line #2
D1 = doubles line #3
3+S = How many times won-lost at least 3 singles lines
DUBS = Record winning doubles point

Winning at least three singles matches usually puts you in a great position to win a match, especially if you have strong doubles.

It has been raised that you can tell a lot about who has been tanking out there based on line success. Say a team who has a decent record at 1-2, but an atrocious record at line three, but really great results at 4-6. That might mean they are throwing line three.

Please post comments on what you think or tweet at me.

Also, if you are interested in advertising here, just let me know. You can send me a message on Twitter or e-mail sixmanguru at gmail (you know the rest).

SMU v Columbia Probabilities

Since the doubles has been played, I thought I would update everything for the rest of the match. As you can tell, it looks bleak for the Ponies. I hopefully will be able to generate more of these on the fly for the remainder of this week.

Top-50 Men’s Lineup Data

I ran this data for the Texas teams and thought I should probably add the top-50 and see what happens.I am going to leave this here without a whole lot of explanation or interpretation. Mainly because I just don’t have time this afternoon. Please leave comments.

For a little background, these were run Monday around noon Central and are based on results against Division I teams.These are the records at each of the positions.

Winning at least three singles matches usually puts you in a great position to win a match, especially if you have strong doubles.

One of the more interesting uses of this would be to determine who may be tanking a line. A key indicator would be say a team who has a decent record at 1-2, but an atrocious record at line three, but really great results at 4-6.

Let me know what you find and see.
