ASUN Conference Top 15 Men’s Basketball Players To Date

“Value Add Basketball is happy to provide the early list of the conference’s top 15 men’s  basketball players based on proven analytics used by NBA teams for draft prep,as well as writers at Sports Illustrated, ESPN, NBC Sports, Fox Sports,” said John Pudner, the inventor of the system.”

“Liberty’s quest to continue their streak of winning the ASUN every years since they joined will be led by the one NBA prospect in the conference, Darius McGhee, who also ranks as the 4th best player in the conference, and his teammate Keegan McDowell who ranks 6th so far this season. “

“The top ranked player is Kevion Nolan, who missed several games and then came out shooting on fire. Last year Nolan was 4th in the ASUN in assist rate, 3rd in steals, 11th in 2-pointers and 2nd in 3-pointers with 45% made. His 6 of 11 at Pittsburgh last week made him even better - 16 of 32 for 50% on 3-pointers this year to be the best player in the conference since his return.”

You can click on this google doc with information on all 4,000+ players prior to it being posted on You can also click here for the top 100 players in the country.

Information includes each player’s chance of making the NBA, his Value Add Rating for how many points he impacts a typical game (roughly 10 points is All-American level). The key to the table is: Rank = the player's conference ranking, Value Add = how many points he improves his team over a replacement player, Class = if he is in his 1st, 2nd, 3rd or 4th and final year of eligibility, Ht = his height, AdjD = how many points he takes away from opponents, and NBA = his percent chance of making the NBA.
