Quickcast: Basketball vs. Delaware 1/19

January 21st, 2013

The Huskies raced out to an eight-point lead and never gave it up, as the closest they allowed Delaware to get was four points. Northeastern was incredibly deadly from behind the arc in the first half, shooting 7-9, which helped NU to offset monster games from Delaware’s Jamelle Haggins and Jarvis Threatt.

CAA Preview: Delaware Blue Hens

October 9th, 2012

Last Year: 18-14 (12-6 CAA) 5th in the CAA, Lost to Old Dominion in the 2nd round of CAA tournament, Lost to Butler in first round of CBI.

What Happened: After a mediocre start to the season in which Delaware found no consistency in nonconference play, Coach Monte’ Ross’ team was able to turn it on in CAA play, specifically in February when they went 8-0. The Hens showed that they have the weapons to cause CAA teams problems as they set a record for CAA wins (12) and reached post-season play (CBI) for the first time since 2000.

Key Losses:

  • Khalid Lewis (G): While it’s worth noting Delaware is graduating two seniors in Samer Madarani (G), and Hakim McCullar (F), neither had significant roles in Coach Ross’ rotation. Lewis, on the other hand, started every game last season as a freshman for the Blue Hens, averaging 5.2 points and 1.9 assists in 29.6 minutes per game. The point guard, who was effective even with most of the touches going to former rookie of the year Devon Saddler, has transferred to the A10 as the newest member of La Salle.

Key Returnees:

  • Devon Saddler (G): This junior is sure to be a player of the year contender. The former rookie of the year had another outstanding campaign last season averaging 18.8 points (second in the CAA) and 4.1 rebounds a game. The Maryland native has the speed to get by perimeter defenses and this season, his outside shot also dramatically improved. Selected to the 2nd team All-CAA.
  • Jamelle Hagins (F): Another second team All-CAA selection and a rebounding machine. The big fellah averaged a double-double last season with 12.4 points and 11.1 rebounds a game. The senior will be the anchor of the Blue Hens defense as he ranks third in Delaware history with 117 career blocks. 
  • Jarvis Threatt: The Virginia native showed that he could adapt to CAA play quick through his rookie campaign. The guard provided scoring off the bench as he averaged the third most points per game on the team with 10.7 and he finished the end of the season on a tear, averaging 19.6 points a game.

Outlook:

With players like Saddler, Hagins, Threatt, and Kyle Anderson, Delaware has the weapons to cause teams problems. However, the only way they’ll be able to utilize those weapons is if they clean up their ball movement on offense. The Hens were ranked second to last as a team last year with 9.4 assists a game. Delaware’s best players all love to have the ball in their hands in order to make plays so Coach Ross will need to tweak his offense so that they all get their touches without sticking to isolation offense. Look for the Blue Hens to contend with Drexel and George Mason for the CAA title.

Previewing the CAA Awards Banquet

March 1st, 2012

The 2012 Virginia 529 CAA Men’s Basketball Championship will tip off in less than 24 hours. While Thursday is the calm before the storm, the league will take time this evening to recognize the top performers of the 2011-12 season with the CAA Awards Banquet.

First, let’s explore picks from pundits Mike Litos of CAAHoops.com, Mark Selig of JamesMadison.Rivals.com, Tim Pearrell of The Richmond Times-Dispatch,  Brian Mull of The Wilmington Star News and Phil Kasiecki of Hoopville.com.

The honors will be handed out at the banquet, which begins at 7 p.m., but let’s take a look at the awards and what hardware we think Northeastern could go home with.

Player of the Year: Pretty much self-explanatory. The top player in the league is recognized with this award, and for the first time since 2009 the award will not say “Charles Jenkins” on it. The former Hofstra standout won the award in 2010 and 2011, and before that VCU’s Eric Maynor claimed the title in 2008 and 2009. The major candidates this year are Ryan Pearson of George Mason and Frantz Massenat of Drexel, although Kent Bazemore of ODU is getting consideration as well.
Northeastern candidate: If I had to go with one I’d say junior captain Jonathan Lee, who led the team in scoring, field goal percentage, free throw percentage, three point percentage and assists and was second in the league in minutes per game. Likelihood: None.
My pick: Pearson. Struggled down the stretch but averaged 17.8/8.5 for a team with a new coach that lost two of its three leading scorers from a season ago. Pearson is also a senior, and like it or not experience will push him past Massenat, a sophomore. Read more…
