Delaware adds high-scoring transfer Davon Usher

By Jeff Borzello | College Basketball Writer

Delaware added Mississippi Valley State transfer Davon Usher on Thursday evening, sources told CBSSports.com.

On the surface, it's not really news that moves the needle. But it could be one that changes the race in the CAA next season.

Usher, a 6-foot-6 guard, will have one season of eligibility remaining -- and he's expected to be able to play right away for the Blue Hens. Because Mississippi Valley State is banned from the postseason due to low APR scores, Usher was able to transfer and be eligible immediately.

The Baltimore native was a high-level scorer in the SWAC last season, leading the league at 18.8 points. He also grabbed 6.1 rebounds and shot nearly 40 percent from behind the arc.

Delaware tied for second in the league last season, but lost double-double machine Jamelle Hagins. With the return of Devon Saddler and Jarvis Threatt, though, the Blue Hens have a very good offensive duo. Usher makes them even more potent on the perimeter, while junior shooter Kyle Anderson is also back. If Monte Ross can find someone to replace Hagins' production, Delaware could compete for the CAA title again.
