Final Atlantic Sun 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….

1st Team All Conference:
WAR Rk WAR/40 Rk HnI Rk Player Yr School M/g P/g R/g A/g S/g B/g T/g PF/g TS%
4.15 1 4.98 1 147 1 Brandon Goodwin JR Florida Gulf Coast 33.6 19.8 6.1 3.6 1.4 0.0 2.1 2.1 0.589

Honorable Mention
2.64 5 3.15 8 134 5 Aubrey Williams SR Kennesaw State 33.5 15.3 11.6 1.0 0.8 0.8 1.4 3.4 0.635
2.47 7 3.52 5 137 4 Chris Davenport SR North Florida 28.1 14.6 7.9 3.5 0.9 1.1 3.4 2.1 0.654

I’d say the top four listed are pretty solid. I could see an argument for any of the three honorable mentions being moved up into that 5th spot.

Player of the Year:  Brandon Goodwin of Florida Gulf Coast ended up with the trifecta, #1 in Wins Above Replacement (4.1), WAR/40 (5.0), and HnI (147).

 

Players who topped the conference in something or another in terms of rating subsets:

(value is in “Points Added” to average conference lineup per 70 possessions)

Demetris Morant of Florida Gulf Coast: #1 in Rebound Rating (+4.5 PA)

Michael Buchanan of South Carolina Upstate: #1 in overall Scoring Rating (+10.9 PA) & Two Point Production Rating (+12.1 PA)
