A 6’1″, 170 pound guard from Worcester, Massachusetts, Mobley led the Blue Devils with 17.2 points per contest. He shot 40 percent from the field and made 35.7 percent of his threes. He will have to sit out a year before playing again, per NCAA transfer rules.

Despite his individual success, Central Connecticut finished 5-26 (3-15 NEC) and tied for last with Fairleigh Dickinson in the Northeast Conference. It was the team’s fourth consecutive sub-.500 finish under longtime coach Howie Dickenman and its worst finish since 1997-1998, its first season in the NEC.

Campus Sports will update Mobley’s story as more details emerge.
