Just threw the team's stats into my spreadsheet to get the first set of PER ratings for the year. Here is the first edition of the Sycamore's pace-adjusted player efficiency rating. Take this first installment for a grain of salt considering as the sample size is small, especially for guys at the end of the bench with limited minutes, but they are off to a good start.

28.31 - Avila
27.08 - McCauley
22.10 - Neese
21.94 - Bledson
21.50 - Kent
21.01 - Gibson
18.98 - Henry
17.28 - Larry
16.03 - Hobbs
14.81 - Stephens
07.87 - Miller
-08.63 - Martin
-12.28 - McKnight

According to John Hollinger, here is his PER Reference Guide. Keep in mind it is geared towards NBA players, but you can get a general idea of what the number above is considered:

A Year For the Ages: 35.0
Runaway MVP Candidate: 30.0
Strong MVP Candidate: 27.5
Weak MVP Candidate: 25.0
Bona fide All-Star: 22.5
Borderline All-Star: 20.0
Solid 2nd option: 18.0
3rd Banana: 16.5
Pretty good player: 15.0
In the rotation: 13.0
Scrounging for minutes: 11.0
Definitely renting: 9.0
The Next Stop: DLeague 5.0

Very clear Avila needs more minutes. What is McKnight's problem?

He was hurt and then sick or vise versa… That set him back.

JS built him up in the pre-season rightfully so. Fans heavily read into press clippings.

He has no problem. We’ve had plenty of players especially big men struggle here out of the gates. I’m sure he will have some positive moments. But so far - he’s not been good.

I think the biggest issue Robbie will have this year is post defense. He should be fine offensively and presents a match up nightmare for typical 5's. He will take some lumps on defense because he needs to get stronger and learn how to maintain good position whole being bumped and backed down in the paint. But i look forward to watching him grow into a top of the conference talent!
