Top 2016 Teams/Players: Missouri Valley (Ranked 9)

We hope Marquette can pick up one of the top available players from our rankings here. Tonight we run through the competition - ranking all the conferences competing with the Big East for bids, and ranking both their teams and top 40 players. 

Wichita State is loaded again, and should be in good shape to win the conference with Seth Tuttle gone from Northern Iowa. The duo of Fred Van Vleet and Ron Baker could well be the top duo in the country and have plenty of confidence after beating Kansas in the tournament.

These are the top 40 players in the conference based on the rankings at www.valueaddbasketball.com. The team rankings are 50% based on the sum of each team’s Value Add ratings and 50% based on last year (since better teams typically replenish after losing stars). With over 4000 players projected in the database, we WELCOME all corrections in the comments field.
Value A

dd was first introduced on www.crackedsidewalks.com, and calculates how many points better each player is worth to his team over how good they would be if he was replaced. The projections measure the standard improvement in a player between his freshman, sophomore, junior and senior seasons, and the evaluation of incoming freshman and JUCO players.
