Big West 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.”

“Amadou Sow is both the best NBA prospect and the most valuable player to date in the Big West, where he hopes to keep UC Santa Barbara in the top two with UC Irvine for the fourth straight season. UC Irvine hopes to keep the streak of NCAA appearances going with two of the top 8 players in the conference (Collin Welp and Justin Hohn), but also the top ranked defender in the conference (Austin Johnson).”

“UC Riverside hopes to break into those two with a duo currently ranked as the 2nd and 3rd best players in the conference, point guard Zyon Pullin and small forward Flynn Cameron.”

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.
