The first place Delaware Blue Hens host the North Carolina-Wimington Seahawks in CAA action.
North Carolina-Wilmington probably is fighting to stay out of the Colonial basement at this point and have an up hill battle to accomplish that after an 0-6 start has the team three games behinf their closest competitor. The Seahawks dropped number ten in a row in a 75-70 defeat at Charleston with 49% shooting not enough with the Countering with 48% including a 10-19 mark on threes. Cedrick Williams and Chris Dixon formed a formidable duo with a combined 43 points and eleven pulls with Ben Eblen addin nine points. Production otherwise was scattered outside of the top contributors.

Delaware is in the midst of a fantastic season with their guard heavy lineup content to fire away from the outside. The fast paced Blue Hens are racking up 81 points and have won nine straight behind potent scoring that is generally needed with opponents scoring a hefty 77 points. UD comes in off an impressive 89-72 rout of William & Mary behind 51% from the floor with a 10-22 performance from long range. The Tribe are no strangers to filling the basket but struggled to 41% accuracy. Davon Usher pumped in a game high 28 points and grabbed nine boards with Carl Baptiste next in line with 23 points. Devon Saddler added 19 points along with snagging six pulls and dishing out seven assists while Kyle Anderson came through with 11 points and ten yanks.
If you like Delaware you must be concerned with their poor defense and suspensions to Threatt (17 ppg) and Davis who gives the Blue Hens some size. The fan in me says Delaware but I am worried...
