ESPN.com writer Eamonn Brennan has named his top 10 rebounders in Division I men's basketball this season, and Delaware senior forward Jamelle Hagins is included on his list.
Hagins, who led the Colonial Athletic Association with 11.1 rebounds per game last season, came in at No. 6 on Brennan's list.
6. Jamelle Hagins, Delaware: The Fightin' Blue Hens are a trendy sleeper pick to win the Colonial this season, and Hagins is a big reason why. He was the nation's third-leading rebounder in 2011-12, posting 15 double-doubles en route to averaging 12.4 points and 11.1 rebounds per game. His defensive rebounding rate was 27.2 percent, and he grabbed more than 10 percent of his own team's misses, and was aided in his counting stats by Delaware's tendency to get up and down the floor. He could put up even gaudier numbers in 2012-13.
Hagins was also listed on cbssports.com as one of the nation's Best Rim Potecting Defenders.
"He possesses great length, basketball instincts and timing -- which make him a tremendous shot-blocker and a vacuum on the glass."
