West Coast 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.”
“Seven years ago we drew attention by tabbing Utah’s Delon Wright as the most valuable player in the country, and now it is their intra-state rival that has the best early season not only in the WCC,but in the nation - BYU’s Alex Barcello. San Francisco’s 12-1 start and chance to contend at least for 2nd place is led by a second non-Zag playing at an All-American level, point guard Jamaree Bouyea, who ranks as the 8th most valuable player in the country.”
“Gonzaga remains the team to beat with two players we rank as almost sure NBA players (Chet Holmgren 97% and Julian Strawther 85%) and another two who have a 50-50 shot (Drew Timme and Andrew Nembhard both 47%), but they will have some stars to contain to get there.
We list a few additional considerations for All-Defense and other NBA prospects below the Top 15.
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.
