Title

Player Points Above Average Created (PAAC)

Abstract

 

Player Points Above Average Created (PAAC) is designed to show which players have the highest scoring efficiency, thus having the largest offensive impact in every game. This statistic has been used with some efficacy in the NBA,  We have computed the PAAC for the entire NCAA using data from synergy.com.  We will show PAAC for players from selected NCAA teams, and comment on the usefulness of PAAC in the college game.
