Tableau Sports Viz Entries

Today is the deadline to submit the entries to the Tableau Sports Viz contest. I have not seen a comprehensive list of the entries, but there have been a ton of them posted by various people. Overall there are some really great visualizations. I'm not sure how many entries Tableau typically gets, but it looks like there was a strong turnout.

First, here is my visualization on "The Story of Two Shots" around an amazing Game 6 of the 2013 NBA Finals that came down to two championship defining shots in the last few seconds of the 4th quarter.

I also want to send a shout out to Russell Spangler who is a colleague of mine and did a great viz on competitive eating.

Here's a list of Sports Vizzes that have been posted recently to various places.
Note - I can't confirm that these are all entries and I'm sure there are many more not on this list.
