Blue Hen Guard Devon Saddler Named Among 10 Least Appreciated Players in College Basketball
August 23, 2012
Jon Rothstein, a College Basketball Insider for CBS Sports Network and WFAN, as well as a contributor for cbssports.com, has listed his 10 least appreciated players in college basketball.
Included in his list is Blue Hen rising junior guard Devon Saddler, who earned second team All-CAA and NABC All-District 10 honors last season after leading Delaware with 18.8 points per game.
THE SKINNY: If you’re a basketball fan and you haven’t watched Saddler play, you’re really doing yourself a disservice. Burly, tough, and nasty all at the same time, Saddler scored over 20 points in 15 games last season and averaged an impressive 18.8 PPG as a sophomore. His presence is the main reason why many, including myself believe the Blue Hens will make a major statement this year in the CAA.
