UAAP considering revising formula for MVP, Mythical Five
By JOB B. DE LEON, GMA NewsJuly 25, 2013 10:41am


The UAAP is reviewing a new statistical points formula for awarding its regular season MVP, Rookie of the Year and Mythical Five, revising a metric that’s been in place since 2003.

The formula, proposed by chief statistician Pong Ducanes, was tackled by the league's technical committee on July 23 and will continue to be studied for the rest of the season.

The new proposal will also consider individual scoring efficiency, or the ability to score more on fewer attempts, versus the current formula, which is based on the raw sum of points, rebounds, and other statistics a player registers over a season.

Junel Baculi, the athletics director and board representative of National University, relayed that the technical committee would not implement revisions to the current statistical points formula this year.

"We want to refine it," he said in an interview with GMA News Online.

Ducanes wants to de-emphasize raw scoring totals with his proposal, and recognize other facets of a player's game.

“In the current formula, field goal and free throw shooting have no weight; they should be included in the statistical points formula,” said Ducanes. “I think the current formula favors scoring too much, I just want to even the playing field.”

Current UAAP formula:

The current formula also adds a uniform “Won Game Bonus” to each player’s statistical points total for every winning game he played in, regardless of the margin of victory. Ducanes proposed that the bonus should be adjusted to reflect the gap.

“[The Won Game Bonus] should be variable so that all teams would give their all in all games,” he said. “Walang bigayan sa dulo kasi importante yung dami ng lamang. Walang gustong magpatambak dapat."

Winning margins are also crucial in the UAAP because they’re factored in when resolving team quotients in cases of ties in the standings, especially between second and third, and between fourth and fifth, when determining the UAAP final four.

Baculi generally agreed with the proposal, saying that in principle, a player's shooting percentages and a gradience of won game bonuses were "salient points" in the issue.

From 2003 to 2007, statistical points made up 50 percent of the awards criteria; the players and coaches combined for 25 percent, while the remaining 25 percent was determined by the media. But since 2008, the awards have been based purely on statistical points.

    ==================================

    Agree ba kayo sa pinopropose na changes sa formula ng mvp at mythical five?

    Para sa akin mas ok yung pinopropose na changes kasi yung score nila icocompare sa attempts sa raw score.

    Mas OK rin sa akin yung pinopropose na changes. Parang sabagay, ipapasok ang sabermetrics sa baseball awards. :glee:

    not a good idea. this will lead to bias against perimeter shooters and favor big men operating inside. this will also discourage taking the low percentage 3 point shots. imports will dominate the awards.

    we all know that the norm in the perimeter particularly treys is lower than shots taken under the basket. but there are players who's turf is only the perimeter. hence, de-emphasizing raw score and relying on shooting efficiency is not a fair basis of a player's worth.

    if they implement this, we would find a mythical 5 composed of sewa, sentcheu, mammie, mbe, abdul. efficient ratings but not necessarily the main contributors to their teams success. they can put up only 4 points in a game but with 100% efficiency.

    bottom line is, players who contribute the most to the team's win deserve the award. this is best reflected in the raw score points (among others stats), no matter where and how he produced it. in another light, the team with the highest score wins the game and not the team with the highest scoring efficiency rating.

    ^^i agree with yvesdrop post#7.....

    additionally, i do not think the proposal to base the won game bonus on the winning margin is a good idea....many times coaches take a sizable lead as the opportunity to develop and field their 2nd and 3rd stringers...after all, the team consists of 16 players....

    it is also good to rest the team's best players to avoid injuries when a win is already assured....a win is a win regardless of the margin....

    many coaches do not like to embarrass other teams with large winning margins.....it is sometimes even considered disrespectful....
