The Delaware Blue Hens go on the road to take the floor with the Columbia Lions.
The Delaware Blue Hens have the talent to make noise in the Colonial if they can put everything together so they probably aren’t a team most in the conference want to see. The Blue Hens are looking for consecutive victories after a 70-47 thrashing of Bradley. The Hens defense limited the Braves to 28% from the floor and countered with 43.6% accuracy which was decisive with eight more field goals. Cazmon Hayes paced a balanced UD attack with 17 points and seven rebounds with Anthony Mosley adding 15 points and five yanks. Kory Holden netted 12 points and handed out seven assists while Marvin King-Davis tossed in eleven points and snagged six pulls.

As one of the favorites in the Ivy League the Columbia Lions are looking to build momentum before the conference schedule begins. The Lions have yet to hit their stride and are losers of back to back contests after a 70-69 loss to Longwood. The Lancers held a slight 46%-44% shooting advantage with Columbia nailing 15-34 on threes but Longwood hit seven bombs and seven more free throws to squeeze out the win. Grant Mullins poured in a game high 23 points with seven rebounds and six helpers while Alex Rosenberg tossing in 12 points. Luke Petrasek chipped in with ten points with Maodo Lo scoring nine.
Delaware are 9-3 ATS in their last 12 road games. The over is 7-1 in Columbia’s last 8 home games and the under is 6-2 in their last 8 Sunday games. I think Columbia is better then they have shown and as a Blue Hens fan I can say with confidence that they can make teams squirm in the CAA and I’ll grab those points…
