The CP3 Elite Guard Camp is an invitation-only camp for the top high school and collegiate point guards from North Carolina and across the country, held in CP3’s hometown of Winston-Salem, N.C. This will be an opportunity for some of the rising stars in the game of basketball to learn on the court from one of the game’s best floor leaders. Fresh off another outstanding NBA season, CP3 is bringing his experience, as well as an elite group of instructors to help a new group of guards.

Saddler started all 33 games for the Blue Hens last season, leading the Colonial Athletic Association and ranking 18th in the nation with 19.9 points per game. His 656 points were the fourth most in a UD single season and the most among Colonial Athletic Association players in 2012-13.

A first team All-CAA selection, USBWA All-District II and NABC All-District 10 honoree, Saddler led Delaware in scoring during 24 games on the year and is the school’s career leader by starting 96 consecutive games, every contest of his career.

Saddler reached double figures in the first 32 games of the season, surpassing the 20-point mark 16 times and recording a pair of 30-point efforts. He has scored 1,670 career points, third most in Blue Hen history and the second most among NCAA Division I returning players behind only Doug McDermott of Creighton.
