Southland 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.”

“Isaac Mushila proves once again that the quickest way to turn around a struggling team is to bring in a JUCO Superstar, and that’s just what has happened as he leads a last place Texas A&M Corpus Christi team that went 5-19 last year to a 10-3 start. Mushila is not just one of the best players in the Southland, he is currently ranked in the top 100 of all players - rare for someone from a smaller conference.”

“The Southland having three players in the top 10% of all players is very impressive, as Southeastern Louisiana’s Jalyn Hinton and defending champ Nicholls State’s Ty Gordon are also playing at a high level. Those two teams also boast one of the freshman off to fast starts listed below 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.
