• Delaware plays its final non-conference game of the regular season this afternoon against Cal Poly. The Blue Hens are looking for their eighth non-conference victory of the season, which would be the most since the 1999-2000 season.
• Today’s game is the first ever meeting between Delaware and Cal Poly. The Blue Hens have played just one previous game against a team in the Big West Conference, a 92-74 loss at UC Santa Barbara on Dec. 3, 1994.
• Delaware posted a 77-64 home victory over Liberty on New Year’s Day, coming back after trailing by eight points at the half. The Blue Hens’ 25 first half points were their lowest in a half this season, while their 52 second half points were the second highest in a half.
Jarvis Threatt scored a game-high 19 points for the Blue Hens, and needs 33 more points to become the 33rd player in UD history to reach the 1,000-point mark.
Devon Saddler and Davon Usher, who were each held scoreless during the first half, finished with 13 points apiece. Kyle Anderson contributed 14 points and now has made 50 three-pointers this season, tied for seventh most in the nation.
• Saddler surpassed the 1,800-point mark, and currently ranks fourth among active players with 1,811 career points. He needs 220 more points to break the UD career scoring record held by Mike Pegues.
• Following today’s contest Delaware closes its regular season with 16 straight CAA games, including Wednesday‘s league opener against Hofstra at the BCC.
• The Blue Hen men’s basketball team will be collecting items for its annual Ronald McDonald House of Delaware Wish List Drive prior to the game.
