Delaware breezes by Hofstra for 3rd straight CAA title game appearance

Associated Press

UPPER MARLBORO, Md. -- Elena Delle Donne had 21 points and 13 rebounds, and No. 15 Delaware breezed past Hofstra 75-54 Saturday to earn a third straight berth in the Colonial Athletic Association title game.

The Blue Hens (29-3) will bring a 24-game winning streak into a matchup Sunday against either James Madison or Drexel. The last time Delaware lost a conference game was in the 2011 CAA championship, against JMU.

Deven Green scored 16 for fifth-seed Hofstra (14-17), making its first semifinal appearance since 2007.

After struggling in the tournament opener against UNC Wilmington on Friday, Delaware took control at the outset and never trailed.

Delle Donne made the opening two baskets and Danielle Parker and Akeema Richards each scored twice for a 14-3 lead. Minutes later, Delle Donne hit a jumper to spark an 8-0 run that made it 25-10.

It was 38-27 at halftime and 52-31 with 15:28 left.
