The Rating of Korean Basketball League Teams in 2006-2007 Season: Taking Account of Home-Court Advantage Lee, Seung-Chun; Byun, Jong-Seok;
It is widely known that the home advantage plays an important factor for determining victory or defeat in sport leagues. Thus a ranking system of sport league should take account of the home advantage as a key factor. Various statistical models are studied to rate the Korean Basketball league teams in 2006-2007 season. Among them, the model equation provided by Harville and Smith (1994) is useful for constructing two ranking systems. Both systems give quite reasonable quantifications of the team`s ability and the home advantage.
