The BRSN Analytics department works directly with Cornell's varsity athletic teams to provide analytical insights and assistance. We currently have project teams working with Men's Basketball, Field Hockey, Baseball, and Football on projects ranging from weekly lineup analyses to automated shot tracking programs. We offer the opportunity for anyone with any level of experience to get hands-on experience while supporting Cornell's teams.
Using data collected in-game, the Basketball analytics team uses software to create effective lineups and player traits that push Cornell's basketball team towards success.

Field Hockey Project
The Field Hockey analytics team collects data from Cornell's games as well as their opponents. This helps the team practice and prepare for their games.
Working with the BRSN Analytics group has made a huge difference to the quality and detail of the information we can provide to both our athletes and coaches. The group were able to drill into both opposition and our own performances to provide information that shaped both training and playing. We feel that this has been reflected in the team's performance in the past season to end the season National ranked.

The football analytics team created a simple front end interface in which coaches can input game data. This data is then processed by a backend program. The processed data is then presented in a way that is easily understandable, providing more nuanced statistics and graphs.
