NEWARK, Del. -- The University of Delaware announced Friday that the Blue Hen women's basketball matchup with Colonial Athletic Association rival Drexel set this Sunday, Jan. 22, at the Bob Carpenter Center, is a sellout.
The Blue Hens (15-1, 6-0 CAA), who are currently ranked No. 16 nationally in both the Associated Press and USA Today/ESPN Coaches polls and riding a five-game win streak, will take on Drexel (9-7, 5-1 CAA) in a battle for first place in the league standings. The Dragons have won four straight entering the game.
The game, set to begin at 3:30 p.m., will mark the first sellout for the UD women at the 5,000-seat Bob Carpenter Center in a game that does not include a doubleheader with the Blue Hen men.
The previous high attendance for a UD women's game at the BCC was 4,772 vs. Old Dominion on Feb. 11, 2005.
The game will be broadcast live on 1290 AM The Ticket as well as on UD student station WVUD 91.3 FM.
In addition, the game will be televised live locally and regionally on The Comcast Network as well as on Comcast SportsNet Mid-Atlantic. Live stats and live video are also available on the UD athletics website at www.bluehens.com/teams/womens-basketball.
UD athletics also has announced that due to the increased attendance for basketball games this season, doors to the arena will now open 90 minutes prior to game time for all men's and women's games for the remainder of the season.
This will also include the ticket windows for both sales as well as for Will Call. The change will begin on Jan. 21 when the Delaware men host Georgia State at 2 p.m. at the Bob Carpenter Center. Please continue to plan to arrive early to avoid lines and traffic.
