Trio of Top 100 Players: Florida, Kentucky, Louisville, Wisconsin and … Green Bay?

If you go with the more precise Offensive only Value Add (see other post), then your Player of the Year is Doug McDermott, while the less precise but more inclusive Overall Value Add rates UConn’s Shabazz Napier No. 1. Michigan State fans were upset when Michigan’s Nik Stauskas rated ahead of their players two weeks ago, but now he is up to No. 9 overall after winning at Michigan State (see photo). Five teams now have three of the top 100 players listed below with two Wisconsin schools (Wisconsin and Green Bay), two SEC teams (Kentucky and Florida) and defending national champion Louisville.

The only two teams with two top 25 players are UCLA and Cincinnati.

The database of all players will be updated shortly at www.valueaddbasketball.com. You can sort by “Off” or any other heading or search by team. The Overall Rating can be higher or lower than the Offensive Rating, because it measures how many more (or fewer) points a player allows the opposing team, as well as a PG/Per adjustment for players who cannot get as many rebounds or blocked shots due to playing on the perimeter. 

Note for state geeks only: In past seasons, the PG/Per for backcourt players has typically been 0.5, 1.0 or 1.5, but due to new “freedom of movement” rules the guards have an easier time and thus need less of any adjustment. The average defensive rating for the top 300 front court players this season is (-0.56, meaning they allow a half point less per game to the opponents) while the average defensive rating for the top 300 backcourt players is +0.25). Therefore, the standard PG/PER ratings on the database this year are 1.0, 0.7 and 0.4 to average out to the 0.81 difference in defensive rating between a good back court and front court player.
