Delaware suspends Jarvis Threatt, Marvin King-Davis for one month

By Jeff Borzello | College Basketball Writer

Delaware has been rolling since Devon Saddler returned from suspension, jumping out to a 6-0 start in the CAA. And now the Blue Hens will deal with two more personnel losses.

The school announced suspensions for all-conference guard Jarvis Threatt and starting forward Marvin King-Davis.

The suspensions are for separate violations of athletic department policies, and will last at least until the end of February.

Threatt, a 6-foot-2 junior, has been one of the best players in the league this season. He is averaging 17.9 points, 5.8 rebounds and 5.4 assists, while also racking up 2.3 steals per game. Meanwhile, King-Davis is a 6-foot-7 sophomore who has started 19 games this season. He is averaging 5.8 points and 4.4 boards.

Delaware has been carried by the perimeter-scoring trio of Saddler, Threatt and Davon Usher. Those three have combined to average more than 57 points per game, and shooter Kyle Anderson is knocking down 43 percent of his outside shots. Despite the top-end talent, the Blue Hens aren't a deep team. Only seven players play more than six minutes per game – and now two of them are out for at least one month.

Delaware trips to William & Mary on Wednesday.
