Big South 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.”

“Ricky Clemons ranks in the top 3% of all players this season as he leads Campbell to try to end two years of dominance by Winthrop. The two are now in separate divisions within the conference. Longwood (Isaiah Wilkins 4th and DeShaun Wade 8th), Gardner Webb (Kareem Reid 9th and Lance Terry 11th) and UNC Asheville (Tajion Jones 5th and Drew Pember 7th) all have duos to compete with those two for the title. 

In addition to the top 15 players, we list the top 5 freshman in the conference.

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.
