Metcalf, who hails from Camby, Ind., has made 64 career appearances in his two-year college career. At 6-foot-9 and 240 pounds, Metcalf was 15th among the America East rebounding leaders at 4.8 per game, plus scored at a 4.0 clip. He shot 53.4 percent from the field. He scored a career-high 12 points against Maine in the regular-season finale. He grabbed six or more rebounds 13 times.
Devlin, a 6-foot-8 forward from Sydney, Australia, was one of the top freshmen in the conference last year as he was selected to the 2011 America East All-Rookie Team. He was named conference rookie of the week on five occasions. Devlin ranked sixth in the league in rebounding (6.9 pg) and had a 7.4 scoring average. He recorded seven double-doubles, including an 11-point, 12-rebound effort vs. Stony Brook in the America East tournament quarterfinals.
