West Coast Conference Final Player WAR Rankings

(I will be crunching the numbers and giving complete player rankings for EVERY D1 conference, using conference only stats and win/loss results as each conference regular season ends. The “write ups” will follow pretty similar formats, since I don’t really have the time to spend much time with each write up. Will obviously tweet out results as usual as soon as each post is up. At the end of each conference write up, I will try to include links to all conference write ups that have already been posted – and maybe an ETA for the next conference.)

What we may garner from the above results….

Player of the Year: Kyle Wiltjer, Gonzaga – squeaked it out, leading the conference in Wins Above Replacement (4.3). Kyle Collinsworth of BYU edged him in HnI (154) and Points Added to average conference lineup per 70 possessions (+7.4) Adom Jacko of Loyola Marymount would have been in the mix with his tops WAR/40 (5.2), but he missed four games – knocking him out of the POY and 1st team mix.

1st Team All Conference – with Wiltjer and Collinsworth would have to be Domantas Sabonis of Gonzaga, Jared Brownridge of Santa Clara, and Dane Pineau of St. Mary’s.
