SIOUX FALLS, S.D. – Sanford SCORE, a system to scientifically rate athletes based on performance in relevant drills, has evaluated players based on their metrics from the NBA Draft Combine ahead of the league’s Thursday draft.

The Sanford SCORE assessment examines results from power, speed and agility drills. A three-digit figure, the athlete’s “Sanford SCORE,” is generated by entering results from the standing broad jump, vertical jump, 20-yard sprint, pro-agility drill and 300-yard shuttle into an exclusive formula.

Thayne Munce, Ph.D., Sanford SCORE’s developer and associate director of the Sanford Sports Science Institute, used the same analytical method behind the Sanford SCORE to grade out the top five athletes at the post, wing and point guard positions based on the applicable drills conducted at the NBA Draft Combine in Brooklyn.

Wyoming’s Larry Nance recorded the top SCORE among post players at 921. Rondae Hollis Jefferson of Arizona led the wings with an 844.  William & Mary’s Marcus Thornton was the top point guard after tallying a SCORE of 872.

Sanford SCORE was developed to provide athletes with a better understanding of their athletic readiness, prevent injury and measure performance among peers. Any athlete can take the assessment at Sanford POWER.
