STORYLINES
• Delaware can clinch at least a share of the CAA regular season title with a win against Drexel. The Blue Hens have not won a conference regular season championship since capturing the America East during the 1998-99 season.
• Delaware recorded the seventh 20-win season in school history, and the first since 2000-01, with Wednesday’s 81-77 victory at Hofstra.
• A win today would give the Blue Hens their 11th consecutive home victory, which would tie for the second longest single season home streak in school history.
• A victory would also give Monté Ross 111 career wins, which would move him into sole possession of second place on the UD career wins list.
Davon Usher scored 27 points during the win at Hofstra and is averaging 30.4 points over the last five games, leading the Blue Hens in scoring during all five.
Devon Saddler added 24 points, and needs just one point to reach the 2,100-point mark for his career.
• Saddler (20.4 ppg) and Usher (19.9 ppg) are the only pair of teammates in the country currently ranked first and second in their conference in scoring.
• Usher needs to score seven points to move into the UD top 10 single season scoring list.
Carl Baptiste posted his third consecutive double-double at Hofstra, and has posted seven double-doubles on the season.
• The Blue Hens overcame their eighth halftime deficit of the season.
