S-R News: Super Bowl Squares App Now Available!

2nd February 2011

Just in time for the big game, our Super Bowl Squares mobile app is now available at the iTunes store and the Android Marketplace.

If you're at a Super Bowl party this weekend and there's a game of squares set up, this app will tell you which squares have the best chance of winning based on game data from 1994-2010. Also, if you're new to the game, there's a page devoted to basic rules that will help you navigate your first SB squares experience. The app costs $0.99, but will pay for itself many times over if you win the pool.

For more information about its features, as well as links to posts about Super Bowl squares theory, click here.

I know this took me way too long to get to, but I finally updated the WNBA section of the site with the 2010 statistics. My apologies to all of the WNBA fans out there. I will try to get his updated in a more timely manner after the conclusion of the 2011 season.

Layups: Check Out These College Basketball Resources

1st February 2011

It's February now, and with the NCAA Tournament starting in 42 days, you probably need to study up on college basketball.

That means it's time for my annual plug of Ken Pomeroy's amazing NCAA advanced stats site. It serves as a great companion to our own College Basketball at S-R site, where you can grab the conventional numbers and get a big dose of NCAA history.

Together, those two sites should serve as vital weaponry in your bracket battles next month.
