Daly averaged 15.0 points and 8.0 rebounds during the Blue Hens’ two conference victories last week, while playing 84 of a possible 85 minutes. He has reached double figures in all but two of the last 19 games, has now led the Hens in scoring during 13 of the last 16 games and led the team in rebounding in the last nine contests.

He currently is tied for fifth in the CAA by averaging 6.9 rebounds per game, while his 14.9 scoring average is good for ninth in the conference.
