Final America East 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.)

Honorable Mention
2.84 5 3.21 11 132 8 Joe Cremo SO Albany (NY) 16 35.3 15.9 5.4 3.8 1.4 0.2 2.2 1.7 0.561
2.37 11 4.64 3 143 5 Anthony Lamb FR Vermont 16 20.4 12.3 4.9 0.6 0.6 1.2 1.9 2.3 0.587

I moved Wesley Myers into the lineup because of his better per minute ratings than Joe Cremo, while still being quite close in overall WAR. It appears that Anthony Lamb will be a future superstar of this conference for the next three years, and would have been 1st team here if he just played a few minutes more per game at his superb production level.

Player of the Year:  The quality true point guard play combined with excellent scoring production & efficiency gave Lucas Woodhouse of Stony Brook the clean sweep of the metrics, #1 in Wins Above Replacement (4.7), WAR/40 (5.9), & HnI (150).

 

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)

Tanner Leissner of New Hampshire: #1 in Free Throw Production Rating (+4.4 PA)

Will Darley of UMBC: #1 in Three Point Production Rating (+7.0 PA)

Hassan Attia of Hartford: #1 in Defensive Stops Rating (steals, blocks, & fouls, +3.4 PA)

Darren Payen of Vermont: #1 in overall Scoring Rating (+12.1 PA) & Two Point Production Rating (+14.2 PA)

Iba Camara of New Hampshire: #1 in Rebound Rating (+5.5 PA)

Michael Almonacy of Stony Brook: #1 in Handles/Passing Rating (Assists & Turnovers, +5.1 PA)
