Recap: Delaware vs. Northeastern

Newark, DE (Sports Network) - Devon Saddler compiled 21 points and eight rebounds, as the Delaware Blue Hens wrapped up their most successful regular season in more than a decade with an 82-72 win over CAA foe Northeastern at the Bob Carpenter Center.

Jamelle Hagins added 13 points and 13 rebounds, marking his 14th double-double of the year, to help the Blue Hens (17-12, 12-6 CAA) win their eighth straight and exact revenge from a last-second loss at Northeastern last month. Hagins also blocked four shots in the victory. Jarvis Threatt provided a spark off the bench with 17 points on 5-of-7 shooting, while Josh Brinkley scored 12 and shot 6-of-6 from the floor.

Joel Smith led all scorers with 24 points to go along with seven rebounds for the Huskies (13-16, 9-9), who were coming off a big win over George Mason Wednesday night. Jonathan Lee scored 16 and Quincy Ford added 11 in a losing effort.

The Blue Hens led for most of the first half as they shot 61.9 percent from the floor and sank 13-of-16 free throws in the opening frame, taking a 42-33 advantage into the break.

The Huskies took to the perimeter in the second half to try and close the gap, but they connected on only 3-of-14 three-pointers (.214) and Delaware went up by as many as 18.

The Blue Hens shot 54.2 percent from the floor in the contest, while Northeastern shot just 38.8 percent. UD's 17 wins are its most in a season since 2000-01.
