I'm looking to have a program created that will scrape all box score information from College Basketball box scores from:
[url removed, login to view];page=cbask/scores/live/[url removed, login to view]
The above link is to yesterday's (11/9/09) scores, but I would want it to scrape box scores from the day before.
An example box score is located at:
[url removed, login to view];page=cbask/scores/final/[url removed, login to view]
It appears that each college basketball game is assigned a GameID, if I needed to input these, I guess I could, but it would be nice not to have to.
I would like the final product to be a .csv file that lists all players and their box scores for the day. So for the above website example, I would like one file for 11/9/09 that lists each player's box score. I would like the following data columns:
First Initial (if player has initials for a first name like D.J., use both initials in this field)
Last Name (if player has a suffix such as Jr. or III, include this)
I have attached a sample output that I am looking for.
Use 11092009Examplev2.csv instead of 11092009Example.csv. I accidentally omitted the initials column.
