NCAA Player Rankings

On Sunday, James Brocato posted the Position Adjusted Win Score Per 40 Minute numbers for the top 6 players on every NCAA tournament team on the Wages of Wins Journal website (PAWS40 is a simplified statistics that highly correlates with Wins Produced).  Today, I’ve decided to rank the players by PAWS40 in various ways.  (Find the full data at ncaa player rankings, which is saved as a Microsoft Excel 97-2003 workbook.)  So, here they are:
