Final Patriot League 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.)

I moved Cam Gregory up into the lineup above Eric Fanning due to his superior per minute production, while also having an overall WAR within spitting range.

Player of the Year:  Tim Kempton of Lehigh is the obvious POY, strong #1 in Wins Above Replacement (4.7) & WAR/40 (6.0).  Nana Foulland of Bucknell did squeak out the #1 rank in HnI (154).

 

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

Tim Kempton of Lehigh: #1 in overall Scoring Rating (+9.1 PA)

Nana Foulland of Bucknell: #1 in Two Point Production Rating (+9.1 PA)
