Atlantic 10 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.”

“We assumed the Bonnie’s would emerge as big favorites after beating VCU for the title last year and with the two players in the conference we rate as legitimate NBA prospects - Osun Osunniyi (ranked 8th in the conference and 41% chance of making the NBA) and Kyle Lofton (15th though would rank higher if he had not missed three games and 46% chance at the NBA). However, right now six teams in the conference are ranked closely together at”

“Three Davidson players rank in the top five in the conference, and after their stunning upset of Alabama they seem to be a slight favorite with an eye on the February 1 game with the Bonnies. Those three were all strong in the 79-78 upset of Alabama, with Michael Jones leading the way with 21 points, Foster Loyer hitting 3 of 7 three-pointers and dishing out 8 assists, and Hyunjung Lee adding 4-8 three-pointers to make Davidson look like a true threat.”

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.
