College MVP: Justin Robinson (2/12/18)

By Paul Bessire
In a new weekly feature, we will crown a weekly college basketball MVP by looking at the player who most positively impacted his team in the previous week. To determine this, we sum up a player's net expected win percentage added/subtracted based on the offensive and defensive plays he was a part of during the game and build a 0-100 rating based off his relative impact. Our free Live ScoreCaster app, that updates simulations in real-time after each play is used to get this info.

Players who consistently make critical plays for their team's chances of winning (without also giving them up) will perform well in this metric.

From Jerome Robinson to Justin Robinson, the second College Basketball MVP comes from the week of 2/5 - 2/11/18.
