Final Ohio Valley Conference 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 Tahjere McCall up into that final spot due to his superior per minute ratings, but honestly an argument could be made for any of the 4 honorable mentions for that final spot.

Player of the Year:  Evan Bradds of Belmont with the sweep, #1 in Wins Above Replacement (4.9), WAR/40 (5.9), & HnI (156).

 

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)

Evan Bradds of Belmont: #1 in Two Point Production Rating (+10.6 PA)

Christian Cunningham of Jacksonville State: #1 in Rebound Rating (+5.8 PA) & Defensive Stops Rating (steals, blocks, & fouls, +2.9 PA)
