The Delaware Blue Hens look for a road wn at the Reilly Center versus St Bonaventure on Monday.
Delaware has looked both good and bad as they search for consistency in the early going. The Blue Hens have the offensive punch but do they have the defense? I would say no after watching their 108-107 overtime decision versus Bryant in which the Bulldogs hit 57% with the Hens sinking half their shots. UD won because they had an extra 12 shots and nobody played defense. Jarvis Threatt paced the scoring spree with 29 points with Davon Usher tossing in 25 while Devon Saddler added 23 points. Marvin King-Davis scored 18 points and grabbed ten rebounds and Carl Baptiste chipped in with ten points and seven yanks.

St Bonaventure has been a solid team but the past week or so has seen some uneven performances. A 74-72 victory at Niagara was closer then expected over a struggling team as the Bonnies defense allowed 48% shooting by the Purple Eagles. Even though the visitors only sank shots at a 42% pace that was enough because they launched 16 more attempts which was decisive. Charlon Kloof led the Bonnies attack with 18 points on 6-14 from the floor with Dion Wright and Jordan Gathers netting 14 points each with Wright hauling in ten rebounds while Andell Cumberbatch chipped in eleven points.
Delaware should have the scoring to hang with St Bonaventure but their defense stinks. I'm going with them as a fan but I wouldn't advise anybody to put hard earned money on them...
