Marvin Menzies called DK Eldridge a defensive stopper following NMSU's victory over Chicago State on Saturday. That's high praise when Eldridge plays on the wing with Daniel Mullings.
By the way, Eldridge said his sprained ankle was at a 7 out of 10 on Tuesday, two days prior to the Aggies road game at Texas Pan American. Sounds like he will play Thursday.
I wrote last year that between Mullings and Bandja Sy, the Aggies could guard any opposing duo in the country. I think the ability is still there, but at 6-8, Sy's length probably gives him an edge on that side of the court over the 6-2 Eldridge. Eldridge is certainly the better offensive player while both are superb athletes.
Here is a story on Eldridge that I wrote today. Who would you take?
