Final West Coast 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.)

What we may garner from the above results….

1st Team All Conference:
WAR Rk WAR/40 Rk HnI Rk Player Yr School G M/g P/g R/g A/g S/g B/g T/g PF/g TS%
4.44 1 5.81 2 156 4 Eric Mika SO Brigham Young 18 30.6 20.0 9.7 1.4 0.6 2.1 2.1 2.4 0.563
4.37 2 6.45 1 176 1 Jock Landale JR Saint Mary’s (CA) 18 27.1 16.2 9.2 1.6 0.1 1.2 1.7 2.7 0.606
3.92 3 4.48 5 132 9 KJ Feagin SO Santa Clara 18 35.5 15.2 3.9 4.4 1.1 0.2 2.1 2.3 0.605
3.64 4 4.84 3 172 2 Nigel Williams-Goss JR Gonzaga 17 31.8 17.9 5.6 4.7 1.8 0.0 2.1 1.4 0.626
3.47 5 3.95 7 120 20 Lamond Murray SR Pepperdine 18 35.2 21.6 5.6 1.5 1.1 0.3 2.7 2.1 0.553

Seven of the top 11 players in terms of HnI were Zags, which then allowed for their 17 team wins to be spread out quite a bit on that roster. Thus, Nigel Williams-Goss ended up with a bit lower WAR than his stellar HnI would initially suggest.

Player of the Year: Jock Landale of Saint Mary’s gets the nod, #1 in WAR/40 (6.4) & HnI (176). Erik Mika of BYU did eek out #1 in Wins Above Replacement (4.4).

 

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)

Eric Mika of BYU: #1 in Free Throw Production Rating (+4.6 PA)

Jock Landale of Saint Mary’s: #1 in overall Scoring Rating (+10.2 PA), Two Point Production Rating (+11.4 PA), & Rebound Rating (+6.2 PA)
