All-Effy For Interior Defensive Impact: The Elite Eight Power Forwards/Centers

• Vashil Fernandez, 6'10" senior C, Valparaiso: He was the nation’s highest-impact interior defender, and not just because he ranked No. 1 in block percentage, swatting 14.3% of opponents’ two-point attempts. The Crusaders held opponents to just 36.1% shooting on the interior (and 0.86 PPP overall) when Fernandez was on the floor, as opposed to 48.6% (and 0.96 PPP overall) when he was on the bench, according to data. Fernandez also helped Valpo have the nation’s stingiest post defense, allowing just 0.61 PPP, according to Synergy.
