It sounds like I depressed fans with Henry Ellenson's Value Add Ranking, and it slipped even further to 405th after the Stetson game. However, in response to the question about why his blocked shots and rebounds do not push him higher - the new run tonight shows he is actually the 32nd best Defensive Player in the Value Add system for taking almost three points per hundred trips a game away from opponents (-2.69, average is 0.00).
|Rnk||Player and Number||OffR||DefR||Pts/Gm|
|100||Fischer, Luke 40||7.29||-0.8||6.2|
|405||Ellenson, Henry 13||2.24||-2.69||4.05|
|525||Cohen, Sandy 5||3.33||-0.9||3.57|
|539||Wilson, Duane 1||3.31||-0.66||3.51|
Offensively, he is ranked only 1224th in the nation - improving the team by 2.24 points a game, due to low shooting percentages and turnovers offsetting his points. Duane Wilson and the very efficient Sandy Cohen are the two Marquette players with higher rankings because they miss so many fewer shots.
Luke Fischer has a nice balance, and snuck back into the top 100 overall.
He helps make Marquette be one of 55 teams with four players in the top 15% of players (top 600). Arizona and Iowa have the most complete rotations with 7 players each.
