Patriot League 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.”
“Loyola Maryland’s Cam Spencer had three steals and no turnovers in the season opener against UNC, and has maintained an amazing pace with only 10 turnovers while coming up with 25 steals to improve Loyola dramatically from last year. Keep in mind an average player commits twice as many turnovers and steals, and Spencer ranks as one of the top 100 players in the entire country (or more than 4,0000). However, Loyola will have an uphill battle to challenge the three teams with highly rated duos - Navy, Colgate and Boston University.”
In addition the to top 15 players, we list five other outstanding defenders in the conference.
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.
