Northeast 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.”
“Wagner looks loaded to repeat their regular season NEC championship and avoid the tournament upset that sent them home last year with three of the top four players in the conference this season. Alex Morales calculates as the Conference Player of the Year after leading Wagner to a shocking early season 58-44 upset at VCU in which he scored 20 points and grabbed 11 rebounds. His teammates Will Martinez and Raekwon Rogers rank 3rd and 4th.”
“They facing the Mount Saint Mary’s team that upset them behind the play of reigning Defensive player of the year Nana Opoku (7 of 9 from the field with 3 blocked shots in last year’s update) on Friday. However, right now Merrimack's Jordan Minor actually has an even better defensive rating so far, with -3.41 points taken away with his defense.”
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.
