The purpose of this article is to encourage advisors to consider choosing a topic related to sports analytics for their next undergraduate research project. We discuss some of the advantages of working in problems related to sports analytics in an undergraduate research context. We also give a sense of the skills necessary to be successful in research, some ideas of what would make good problems, and avenues to present results. This article expands on the author’s presentation at the 2012 Trends in Undergraduate Research in the Mathematical Sciences Conference.
