The Blue Demons return four double-digit scorers from last year’s very strong squad that won both the Big East regular season and tournament titles. Head coach Doug Bruno has run the show for 32 years and just signed a contract extension through 2023-24; his team averaged 83 points per game last year, shot 36 percent from 3-point range and had a 724-480 margin in assists to turnovers. Senior Mart’e Gray missed all of 2016-17 with an Achilles injury but averaged 14.4 ppg last year, and classmate Ashton Millender added 13.6 ppg. Junior guard Kelly Campbell is an intriguing talent, averaging 10.6 ppg and 8.6 rpg.
