Last season, the return of red-shirt Malcolm Brogdon and transfer Anthony Gill led a lot of people to believe that Coach Bennett may play with handing out a red-shirt. Well, after some discussion, first year Devon Hall red-shirted.
While Hall seemed a little surprised and disappointed at first, the extra year of preparation has paid off in his eyes.

As a senior in high school in Virginia Beach, Hall averaged 13.7 points, seven rebounds, and eight assists. Like several other members of this year's squad, he has worked heavily with Strength Coach Mike Curtis, and dropped a few pounds between his first and second year.
Coach Bennett will use Devon Hall as a back up for London Perrantes at the point this year, but I wouldn't be at all surprised to see him spell Malcolm Brodon as well. His stroke is smooth (he was fun watch in preseason shoot arounds last year), and Devon is known for his length and athleticism.
After the suspension of Perrantes (and Nolte) for the season opener at JMU, don't be surprised to see Devon Hall starting at point. Wahoo fans should be excited to see what Devon can bring to the table this season. I expect big things and big minutes.
