(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.)
Click the following link for ALL the data in excel, fully sortable – including an FAQ sheet:
What we may garner from the above results….
1st Team All Conference:
|5.32||1||6.03||2||146||2||Joe Chealey||JR||College of Charleston||18||35.5||19.2||3.8||3.6||1.0||0.1||1.7||2.0||0.641|
|3.82||4||5.18||4||140||3||Daniel Dixon||SR||William & Mary||17||31.7||22.9||5.6||2.8||0.6||0.4||2.2||2.8||0.645|
|3.48||5||4.41||5||128||8||Jarrell Brantley||SO||College of Charleston||18||31.8||14.9||8.4||1.3||1.3||1.1||2.2||3.0||0.571|
I have never seen two separate players with the same WAR/40 & HnI (after rounding) as the top two here had. I dropped Ryan Daly out of the lineup- his solid WAR is tied mainly to his team being horrible yet somehow getting 5 conference wins, and Ryan getting the vast majority of the win credit because he was the only guy who was a quality producer. After typing that sentence, maybe I should have kept him in the top 5, that team very well would have had zero wins without him. One win tops.
Player of the Year: Joe Chealey of College of Charleston is a fairly easy choice, #1 in Wins Above Replacement (5.3). Devontae Cacok of UNC-Wilmington, as the previously mentioned dead heat, squeaked out #1 in WAR/40 (6.0) & HnI (146).
