CBB Review CAA Tournament Most Outstanding Player
Jyare Davis, Delaware
Davis was the most consistent offensive weapon for the Blue Hens. The best stat about him that will blow you away is that his consistency came without attempting a single three-pointer. The other important stat for Davis was his rebounding that limited the second chance opportunities for other teams.
The best part of Davis is his ability to score, but he has quite the supporting cast that could take the Blue Hens dancing into this tournament. With Carr’s ability to grab rebounds on both ends, Nelson is the consistent scoring help.
Delaware’s NCAA Tournament Prediction
Round of 64
When it comes to mid-majors, the short end of the stick is hard to overcome. The Blue Hens will need a lucky draw to make it past the first weekend. While the talent and ability are there, advancing in the Big Dance will be tough to come by.
