If he put up those same numbers at let's say Ole Miss (SEC) or TTU or WVU (Big 12) they absolutely mean more. Those conferences have more athletes, more cameras, more exposure. No debate.

You're right if he averages 27ppg and shoots 41% from 3 at 6'4 but that's Steph Curry territory. That's rarified air. Steph was drafted 7th in 2009. One spot behind Johnny Flynn from Syracuse. If Steph was wearing a Cuse jersey instead of Davidson during college he's probably going top 2 in that draft behind Blake Griffin.
Doesn't mean nearly as much as you think. The 2 guard doing the same thing in the SEC/ACC is going against elite athletes just like the kid in the A10 is going against. There is so much good to great guard play in every conference. The difference in the conferences is the BIGS.Look at all the transfers in the A10 from power 5 conferences.

Now, maybe a scouting report on an elite guard with good size from a power 5 conference may say he gets to the rack at will and can take it to the 6'9 players easily and, yes, that kid probably will get more exposure for the NBA but if you have the size, the athletic ability, can shoot and score and you can play the game then they find you wherever you are and you will be known. Don't care if you're a white kid in the ACC or the A10...

And no 6'2/6'3" G that was as thin, weak and not a leaper at all like Steph was going to be picked #2 in any draft. Now, you want to talk Ja Morant who can run like a deer and jump thru the roof then that's different.

You're going to get to showcase yourself in the AS games and the pre-draft events, too..
