Sports Analytics grad student calls stats for March Madness
April 13, 2021
Demi Johnson played basketball as an undergraduate and now studies sports analytics at the School of Informatics and Computing at IUPUI as a graduate student. Recently she had a unique opportunity to put all her knowledge to work as a live stats caller at the mens’ NCAA basketball tournament in Indianapolis.
Johnson was at the Indiana Farmers Coliseum located on the state fair grounds for the first two rounds of the tournament. Her job was to watch the court during play and feed information to the stats recorder seated next to her.
