Horton Among Nation's Most Valuable

Horton Among Nation's Most Valuable

Senior men's basketball captain Ken Horton was highlighted in an article on SI.com by Luke Winn as one of the most valuable players in the country.

Winn writes about the Value Add formula, created by John Pudner, and former advisor to several Presidential candidates. 

Horton is ranked eighth nationally on the list.

According to Winn:

Central Connecticut's Ken Horton is the best player you've never (or barely) heard of.

The reigning Northeast Conference player of the year, who averaged 19.5 points per game as a junior, is the only low-major player to crack Pudner's five-percent-over-replacement club. And lest you think the 6-6 Horton's standing on this list is inflated because he plays in a small conference, it should be noted that Pudner's formula is stacked against low-major players. It adjusts efficiency based on the strength of defenses faced, and uses major-conference replacement-player numbers as its baseline. What the 5.06 percent next to Horton's name means is that he'd theoretically be able to enhance a major-conference team's offense by 5.06 percent.
