2021 Projected Player Cards Released for use with Value Add Basketball Game

With the kickoff of the college basketball season, we calculated the projected player cards for 68 teams to enable you to play these season off as though there were no risk of interruption. The graphics team is laying out the cards, but if you want you can get started by printing out the teams you want to to play from the google sheet. The following is Duke as an example, and click here for the free game.

We chose the 10 players who would yield the best cards from those currently on this roster, however we noticed some of the JUCO transfers and transfers who had sat out a season (e.g. Sam Hauser with UVa) were not listed, so we added players from the Top 100 JUCO rankings as well as Jeff Goodman's rankings from 2019 tracking the key transfers who sat out the 2020 season but planned to play this season. We did not go beyond those three steps to verify if players were sitting out this year due to Covid, were injured, etc., but we hope this gives a realistic play for what would have happened this season without the interruptions Covid-19 may cause.

As for the teams we chose, we picked teams who had cards from last season because they would have made the NIT or NCAA. From there we picked teams we expect to make the NCAA tournament this year based on, and retained at least one team from each Conference. The six major conferences all had at east four teams, so we plan to have conference play between them. That left 30 teams from other divisions, and we divided them into three collective conferences (East, West and South-Central). Because those three collective conferences, as well as the Big Ten, feature 10 teams we broke them each into two groups. 

You need to print this scoresheet to play the game.

The following is our breakdown of these divisions for our upcoming games, and I plan to track results on this google sheet.
