Abstract

The formation of a main basketball team eligible for playing a basketball match is determined by several factors, namely players’ position within the game, players’ physical and mental abilities, as well as players’ technical abilities. There are five positions for a basketball player: playmaker, shooting guard, small forward, power forward, and center. Each of these positions have specific responsibilities and require different skills. Each skill is further divided into some specific skills. Every basketball player surely wants to be selected as a representative for a match. Therefore, players compete each other to show their abilities. Because of evenly-distributed and equal abilities from each player, as well as many factors to be considered, coaches often face difficult decisions to form the main team that consists of best players for each position for a particular match. In this research, we developed an application to assist coaches on deciding the main basketball team to be sent to a competition. The main team is determined by specific criteria and coach’s strategies. This application is developed using Profile Matching method. Profile Matching works by comparing actual data values of a profile with expected profile values. Any values produced will be used as ideal predictor variables for each player. Validation is performed with two University of Surabaya (Ubaya) coaches and one assistant, as well as 20 basketball players. It shows that the decision support system helps coaches in determining main basketball team for Ubaya and players in motivating themselves to be the best players.
