Description

This project aims to predict the probability of a kill on left-side and right-side attacks in volleyball. Specifically, it looks at the type of attack, which accounts for it being either a left-side vs a right-side attack and whether it was a fast tempo or a slower tempo set, the grade of the pass for this play, and whether this attack was on a first-ball play or in the transition of a rally. A logistic regression model was used to To look at the relationship of these variables. Using the p-value, it was found that attack type and whether it was a first-ball or transition play were the significant variables for this model.
