NBA to Host Inaugural Basketball Analytics Hackathon for Students in September

On September 24, student statisticians, developers and engineers will take part in the first-ever NBA Basketball Analytics Hackathon.

Teams accepted to the Hackathon will build basketball analytics tools and develop solutions for problems in the field of basketball analytics. They will then present their work to a panel of expert judges and an audience of NBA League Office and team personnel, media, and the other competitors.

Prizes will be awarded to the top three teams, including a tour of the NBA League Office and a lunch with NBA staff.

The NBA Basketball Analytics Hackathon is open to undergraduate and graduate students studying at accredited universities in the United States and Canada, excluding Quebec.
