Southern Conference Top 15 Men’s Basketball Players To Date
“Value Add Basketball is happy to provide the early list of the conferences 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 Southern Conference features a trio playing at an incredibly high level outside of a major conference. Malachi Smith (Chattanooga) is in the top 1% of all players as the 32nd most valuable players in the country. He is playing more than 90 percent of all minutes, and is among the best in the nation at dishing assists, drawing fouls, and hitting all three kinds of shots - free throws, 2-pointers and 3-pointers. And despite how dominant he has been, we calculate two other players are in the top 2% of all players and could catch him for Player of the Year - Alex Hunter (Furman) and De'Monte Buckingham (UNC Greensboro).”
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.
