St. Mary's would have been an average college basketball program the last few years without their Australian-born PG, Matthew Dellavedova.
In terms of production, he is putting up exceptional numbers again (16.1 PPG; 3.2 RPG; 6.3 APG).
Jeff Faraudo of Mercurynews.com details where Dellavedova stands in terms of leadership:
Four times each year, Bennett asks his players to rate the leadership qualities of their teammates in 12 categories, including work ethic, confidence, mental toughness, trust, ability to unify the team and confront his teammates, and respect.
"I don't know there's a category that Delly's not first in," teammate Beau Levesque said.
In fact, on the most recent survey, Dellavedova scored at the top in every category. As usual.
It’s no wonder that he was Australia’s starting PG at the London Olympics.
