Metro Atlantic Athletic 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.”

“Rick Pitino’s Iona scored an early update of Alabama to boost the MAAC, and his star Nelly Junior Joseph’s double-double in that game helped him contend for Player of the Year in our first conference rankings. He is in the top 2% of all players in blocked shots and offensive rebounds. However,so far Monmouth’s George Papas ranks overall in the top 2% of players in the country and the top player in the conference, and Quinnipiac’s Matt Balanc ranks second with Joseph third.”

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.
