The Delaware Blue Hens are a mid-major school that stands a very good chance of making a deep run in the tournament. If they want to fulfill those dreams, they’ll need these five players at their best highlighted by a big three averaging 57.1 points per game combined.
Junior guard Kyle Anderson has been quite a support player for the Blue Hen’s big three. Averaging 34.8 minutes per game, he averages 11 points and nearly four rebounds. His ability to make plays when needed help keep all the defensive pressure off of their big three (you’ll meet them later).
Senior forward Carl Baptiste averages 11.3 points and 8 rebound per game. They’ll need him holding down in the paint area so they can continue to create space for their three play makers on the edges. He helps complete this solid Delaware squad.
The first piece of the Blue Hen’s big three, Davon Usher averages 19.4 points, 6.1 rebounds and 1.8 steals per game. Usher has proven to be a solid player for them and without him, Delaware will certainly have some trouble finding their way to victory.
The second piece of the big three, Devon Saddler leads the team in scoring with 19.7 points per game. He’s a well rounded player that also averages 4.3 rebounds and 3.6 assists per game. Saddler does several good things well for Delaware and they’ll need him playing well.
The third and final piece of the big three, Jarvis Threatt does just about everything well for the Blue Hens. Threatt averages 18.1 points, 5.8 rebounds, 5.6 assists and 2.5 steals per game. To put his defensive contributions in perspective, the nation’s best defender, Ohio State’s Aaron Craft, averaged just 2.4 steals per game this past season. Threatt is the do-it-aller and they’ll need him in that role in the tournament.
