Conference USA 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.”

“Conference USA boasts two of the top 30 players in the country as of the Christmas break, Tylor Perry giving North Texas a chance to repeat their March Madness upset from last year and Kenneth Lofton building on Louisiana Tech’s success winning three of four NIT games. We also rank two players as bona fide NBA prospects with Charlotte’s Jahmir Young (46% chance at the league) and Marshall’s Taevion Kinsey (48%).”

“UAB looks like one of the most balanced teams in the country and one of the best, but it could be a war with the stars from North Texas and Louisiana Tech with the top three rated teams all in CUSA West. Kinsey’s Marshall team plays at the second fastest pace in the country, and Kinsey lets them content with Western Kentucky for the East.”

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.
