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.

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.
