For Immediate Release

Mid American Conference Top 15 Men’s Basketball Players To Date

“Toledo’s duo of JT Shumate (ranked 2nd in the conference) and Ryan Rollins (the top NBA prospect in the conference) could give them the best shot to challenge Buffalo for the title. Buffalo’s potential NBA prospect Jeenathan Williams fell out of the top 15 after missing a game at Western Kentucky and then having a nightmare 3 of 22 shooting day against Canisius, but we expect him to be back near the top of the rankings with teammates Josh Mballa and Ronaldo Segu making Buffalo formidable.

“However to date, Ohio’s Mark Sears from country music capitol Muscle Shoals is nudging out Shumate for player of the year. The point guard is nationally ranked in assists, steals, drawing fouls, avoiding fouls, shooting and foul shooting - and has led Ohio to wins against everybody so far except LSU and Kentucky.”

“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.”

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.
