3rd Annual Basketball Analytics Summit Return to listing


It’s easy to see that the sport industry has truly captivated and positively impacted our society. Held at one of our nation’s premier basketball universities, this conference serves to engage and explore the leading basketball experts who love, research, and work with performance (individual or team) and business analytics.

Last year more than 250+ participants, both students and industry professionals, attended the event to better understand how analytics is used and why analytics is increasingly being adopted by those within basketball to predict, produce, or capitalize on viable growth opportunities. Last year’s panel sessions covered a breadth of topics, including:

  • Fan Experience & Engagement
  • Individual Performance
  • Marketing & Ticketing
  • Sport Science
  • Entrepreneurship in Analytics

With a focus on innovation and access to premium speakers and company representatives, the Summit has quickly become the foremost "must attend" sport conference with unique programming and networking. Past participants include John Skipper (ESPN president), Dr. Kirk Goldsberry (Grantland contributor and Courtvision founder), Dean Oliver (the “grandfather” of basketball analytics), Ken Pomeroy (the #1 college basketball statistician), Catapult, Google, and Wasserman Media.

If you are a student, please consider participating in the case competition sponsored by NBA Charlotte Hornets too!

We look forward to seeing you in Chapel Hill for another amazing Summit!  For more information about the Summit visit www.bas.unc.edu .
