TOWSON, Md. -- Jerrelle Benimon had 21 points and 12 rebounds as Towson won its third straight game with a wire-to-wire 85-65 victory over Delaware on Wednesday night, sweeping the season series.
Benimon posted his 17th double-double of the season for the Tigers (13-12, 8-4 Colonial Athletic Association), who also defeated the Blue Hens 69-66 on Jan. 16.
Towson scored the first 11 points en route to a 33-23 halftime lead, then scored 52 second-half points on 69.2 percent field-goal shooting (18 of 26).
Delaware (11-12, 6-4) shot poorly, making only 9 of 30 field goals in the second half, a slight improvement over its 8-of-29 shooting in the first.
Devon Saddler's 20 points, including 10 of 10 free throws, led the Blue Hens (11-12, 6-4), whose three-game winning streak ended.
Maryland point guard Melo Trimble, considered a lock to leave the program before struggling in the second half last season, has withdrawn from the NBA draft and will return for his junior season.
Louisville's Chinanu Onuaku, who recently underwent a medical procedure to correct a heart rhythm issue detected during the combine, will keep his name in the NBA draft pool.
Andrew White III will return to the Nebraska men's basketball team next season after removing his name from the NBA draft.
