Predicting the 2020 CEBL Award Winners

With the 2020 CEBL Summer Series now completed with the Edmonton Stingers winning the Championship, we thought we would take a shot at predicting who the Summer Series awards would be given to.

To gather the data behind all of the award winners we pulled the stats from each individual team’s statistics page and combined them into one dataset.

For the players league ranking, we’ve excluded anyone who did not play at least 4 games during the 6 game mini-season.
