A Box Plot Look at the Super Netball 2018 Grand Final

The 2018 Super Netball Final between West Coast Fever and Sunshine Coast Lightning takes place on 26 August at the Perth Arena.

I have followed this season’s competition results through the data supplied by Champion Data.

I have used BoxPlotR to visualise the data in an attempt to identify how the Final might be played.

West Coast

Centre lines show the medians; box limits indicate the 25th and 75th percentiles as determined by R software; whiskers extend 1.5 times the interquartile range from the 25th and 75th percentiles, outliers are represented by dots. There are n = 15 sample points.

Data summary:

Sunshine Coast

Comparison Plot: West Coast and Sunshine Coast

Centre lines show the medians; box limits indicate the 25th and 75th percentiles as determined by R software; whiskers extend 1.5 times the interquartile range from the 25th and 75th percentiles, outliers are represented by dots. There are 15 sample points for West Coast and 16 for the Sunshine Coast.

The data suggest a close game. I am keen to see how the Sunshine Coast stay in contact with the West Coast as the away team, particularly in the final quarter.
