There is some great analysis here. Thanks for posting the link. It is interesting (and sad) that Lever went from the WAC player of the year two years ago to not even making the third team on this list.
Anyone know if Jaylen Fisher received the all clear to play this year from the NCAA? GCU sure seems to be acting as if he has it but I have not heard anything definitive.

Yes Fisher has the all clear. Also you have to take these blogs with a grain of salt.

Yes, but this one is the most in depth that I have seen. Pretty impressive and obvious that the writer at least follows the WAC. Too often these are about 2-3 sentences per team, if that.

I too came away impressed with their understanding of the WAC. I do think they tended to elevate players who transferred from Power 5 conferences though. Other than that, the analysis seems solid.
An example of how much they understand the WAC can be found in the CSUB section. This paragraph pretty much summed up CSUB's season:
"On the morning of February 7th, Cal State Bakersfield sat at 15-7, 6-2 in the WAC, primed to make a run at the top tier of the conference. Despite coming off a home loss to Grand Canyon, the Roadrunners were in a strong position, and they had conference-leading New Mexico State coming to town. Bakersfield built a 62-53 with 1:09 to play (99.2% chance to win, per KenPom), but three turnovers in the final 40 seconds sent the game to overtime. The Roadrunners remained resilient, though, and a Jarkel Joiner jumper with 7.7 seconds remaining put them up two. But NMSU buried a three at the buzzer to win 71-70, and the season crumbled. Including the GCU and NMSU losses, Bakersfield lost 8 of its final 9 regular season games and bowed out quickly from the WAC Tournament, as well. To top it all off, leading scorer Joiner up-transferred to Mississippi in the offseason, and Rod Barnes will now have to find reset the program, both mentally and on the court, in 2019-20."

Thanks for that glorious recap Professor. Any time we can rip the souls out of a soon to be former conference mate, I'm all for it.

I agree with you all that the analysis is pretty in-depth and it's a pretty darn good read.
