Mid-Eastern 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.”

“The first time an NBA team executive met with me to discuss NBA prospects based on Value Add Basketball ratings. We met to watch the MEAC’s Kyle O’Quinn (Nolfolk State), who I said could make it in the NBA. Later in the year O’Quinn led a shocking upset of Missouri during March Madness and then the Orlando Magic picked him up late in the second round of the NBA draft and he had a 9-year NBA career.”

“This year Norfolk State boasts the top NEC player to date according to our calculations in Kris Bankston, but Howard looks like the big favorite with four of the top six ranked players in Kyle Foster, Steve Settle, Randall Brumant and Tai Bibbs. Malik Miller is listed after the top 15 players as a possible NBA prospect due to NBA indicators such as offensive rebounds and steals - but he missed several games early in the season and thus does not crack the top 15.”

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.
