Delaware star Devon Saddler suspended by team for a month

By Matt Norlander | College Basketball Writer

Devon Saddler, Delaware's best player and among the best in the CAA, has been suspended for a month, the school announced Tuesday.

Saddler will sit for an unspecified violation of team rules, according to the school.

The 6-2, 210-pound Blue Hens guard averaged 19.9 points and 4.5 rebounds for the Blue Hens last season. Through two games this season, Saddler put up 23 points and five rebounds per.

“We hold our student-athletes to high standards academically, athletically and socially,” coach Monte Ross said via statement. “When those standards are not met, there are consequences. Devon realizes that he now has an obligation to regain the trust of his teammates, coaches and fans.”

Saddler is currently second all-time at UD in scoring and was on pace (1,716; the record is 2,030) to set the school record prior to this suspension. A projection of Delaware's schedule means Saddler will miss the next seven games, including the Dec. 7 one against Notre Dame.
