Joining Baker and Griffin in double figures were Miles Norris (17 points), Jordan Bowden (15 points), Mouhamed Gueye (11 points), and Vit Krejci (10 points). The game saw a back-and-forth first quarter, but Delaware gained momentum in the second quarter, securing a 16-point lead with sharpshooting from beyond the arc. Despite a spirited effort from College Park, they couldn't overcome the Blue Coats' lead in the second half.


Jordan Bowden's 10 third-quarter points brought the Skyhawks within one point, but Delaware responded with a 10-2 run to end the quarter with an 81-72 lead. The Blue Coats maintained a double-digit advantage throughout the final quarter.
