Weekly Round-Up 04.18.2021
Hey #SportsVizSunday fans! We hope you have had a great week and are ready to check out some amazing sports vizzes from the past week.
There have been more submissions using this month's Lacrosse dataset, including this one from Nicole. We love seeing new people participating. Welcome on board, Nicole!
We loved this entry from Jakub Jaros, using animations in D3.js to bring the data to life.
Simon shared this great minimalistic view of lacrosse champions across the men's and women's divisions.
MLS has returned this weekend which has led to some great work. Kim Tricker looks at the nail biters from past seasons, Bo McCready paid tribute to Austin FC as they enter their first MLS season and Steve Fenn provides a look at ages of current MLS players.
Ryan Hart investigated whether there is correlation between player weight and player performance. The results seem inconclusive but I like the design!
Tom Hewett took a look at results from the 2021 Masters.
Liverpool were knocked out of the Champions League this week after a 0:0 draw with Real Madrid. In this viz, Mark looks at how each Liverpool player performed in terms of threat posed by each pass.
Daniel Sedin looks ahead to the NBA draft lottery in June. The use of the NBA logo in simulating the results is very clever.
This week's #MakeoverMonday dataset was looking at fouls called by NBA referees. It's great when different community initiatives overlap. Check out Eva's favourites in the tweet below, and follow the hashtag to see the other excellent entries. There were far too many to list them here!
Thanks for reading this week's #SportsVizSunday round-up! There is still time to check out this month's data set on Lacrosse rankings, and don't forget to submit your work (past, present and future!) to our tracker. See you next week!
