DEVON WHITE just graduated from La Salle University, but he has another season of eligibility. Under a fairly recent NCAA rule, a player who has graduated with eligibility can play immediately at another school if he takes graduate-level courses. So White will play next season at Niagara for coach Joe Mihalich, a La Salle grad himself.
The 6-8 White (Strawberry Mansion) often showed flashes of talent but could not sustain it. Perhaps a change of venue will help.
“I went up there on a visit and kind of enjoyed myself,” White said. “I felt at home up there. The guys treated me well. The students welcomed me with open arms. I knew a couple of guys that played for [Mihalich], and they told me he was a great guy. I kind of went off their word a little bit.” n
