Garza Tops 1st Value Add Basketball Rankings

We have had some hiccups in getting the Value Add Basketball rankings calculated and posted this year, but here is the first top 50 of the year through games of Christmas (yes, we are a couple of weeks behind). We believe we have worked through all the kinks, so hopefully we will get these more current and updated more regularly during the rest of the season.

You can see more details on each player, and the entire list of players better than a replacement player by clicking on this google sheet, and hopefully soon these numbers will all be successfully imported into

If you are new to Value Add Basketball rankings, the calculation is based on all offensive and defensive stats as well as the level of competition faced and team defense. The row below indicates that Garza's Value Add is 12.78, meaning if he missed a game and was replaced by a standard replacement player, Iowa would average being 13 points worse. In other words, if they won a game by 7 points with Garza playing, they would have lost the same game by 6 points (a 13 point swing) if he was replaced.

Thank you for your patience!
