The results of the March Madness Data Science Competition are in! Contestants from Penn State Harrisburg created models to predict the probability for winners in all possible match ups for the Men’s NCAA Basketball Tournament. The submissions were ranked based on the outcomes of the games that were actually played.
More than 40 students participated in the workshops leading up to the tournament. A special thanks to Dr. El Ariss, Dr. Hsu, and Dr. Blum for organizing the workshops.
Prizes are awarded for the top 3 submissions. Congratulations to the winners:
