Abstract

Basketball is always a hot topic in Duke. With the duke man basketball data, we aim to find the highlights and interesting facts of a game and let fans share them on the social network easily. Our ultimate goal of this project is to tweet the most interesting facts about a game automatically right after it finishes. In order to achieve that goal, we analyze the performances to find interesting claims efficiently, rank them by impressiveness, and ensure our final tweets' diversity. We also proposed two evaluation methods to compare readers' preferences with our sorted and diversified results.
