NEWARK, Del. -- It is no shame to lose to Vermont in skiing and maple syrup.It's less palatable for a lacrosse program with serious aspirations. But that's the reality Delaware dealt with two years ago, when a 10-game losing streak bottomed out in an ignominious America East Conference loss to the Catamounts that left the Blue Hens clucking about their future."

Three years ago, attackman Eric Smith chose Ohio State over the University of Delaware because he wanted a university much bigger than the high school he attended, Boys' Latin. Delaware head lacrosse coach Bob Shillinglaw thought there might have been another reason. Smith's older brother, Alex, played for the Blue Hens and became one of the top face-off specialists in the history of the college game from 2004-2008. Maybe the younger Smith wanted to escape his brother's shadow.

NEWARK, Del. -- Want to know just how psyched up Delaware's Mike Pegues was for Towson last night? Pegues nearly broke down the scorer's table on the opening tip-off when he went crashing over two seats in an attempt to get the ball before it bounced out of bounds. He didn't quite get to the ball in time, but it proved to be a bad omen for the Tigers. The Blue Hens' marquee player would spend the rest of the night breaking down Towson to the tune of 32 points, 13 rebounds, two assists and two steals, leading his sluggish teammates to a 79-69 victory in the quarterfinals of the America East basketball tournament before a record crowd of 5,267 at the Bob Carpenter Center.

If not for the opponent, yesterday's scenario would have been a nice one for Towson, needing to bounce back after three consecutive losses on the road.After a week off, the Tigers would return to action at home, and in front of a nice crowd pumped up because of the presence of television.The only problem was, Delaware hasn't been much of a vacation for Towson in recent years. That trend continued as the Blue Hens beat the Tigers, 73-56, their fifth straight win in the series before 1,748 at Towson Center.

NEWARK, Del. -- They watched helplessly as the seconds ticked away on their season. Towson players sat on the bench, hunched over, their chins resting in the heel of their hands, towels draped lazily over their heads, eyes glazed over. For the fourth straight year, Delaware (19-9) ousted the Tigers (12-17) in the quarterfinals of the America East tournament. This time it was a 66-51 decision before 4,294 at Delaware's Bob Carpenter Center. "I'm really proud of the way our team competed," Towson coach Mike Jaskulski said.

Between heavyweight bouts with Wake Forest and Notre Dame, Navy has an intriguing scrap today with Delaware of the Colonial Athletic Association and NCAA Football Championship Subdivision. It's a game that figures to deliver more than its marquee value might indicate. At 6-1, Delaware is ranked eighth in the FCS coaches poll. The Blue Hens beat Navy in Annapolis in 2003 en route to their sixth Division I-AA national title. They have a Division I transfer at quarterback and a durable playmaker at running back.

NEWARK, Del. - Delaware was down by 20 points with under 9 minutes left and the fans were beginning to empty from Bob Carpenter Center, which was nothing new to the Blue Hens' men's basketball program. The student section stuck around longer than usual, although it was only a quarter full to begin with. Little did those fans know that Feb. 5 would be the night Baltimore native Davon Usher would bring Delaware back to relevancy. With under a minute to play, Usher stripped Cougars guard Anthony Thomas and went coast to coast, evading four defenders on his way to the rim. The 6-foot-6 senior guard flipped the ball through the net, sending Delaware on its way to a 67-64 victory.

Towson entered Monday's matchup with Delaware clinging to hope that it could make a late-season push to fulfill its preseason expectations as favorites to win the Colonial Athletic Association. Another loss to the red-hot Blue Hens, and the Tigers would have to resign themselves to, at best, a No. 2 seed in next month's conference tournament. Jerrelle Benimon wouldn't have any of it. The preseason CAA Player of the Year put on a show, scoring 25 points and pulling down 18 rebounds, leading the Tigers to a 78-63 victory at SECU Arena and handing Delaware its first conference loss of the season.

Even before Saturday night's pivotal Colonial Athletic Association showdown with No. 7 Towson, Delaware appeared to be fighting an uphill battle. Not only were the Tigers playing in the friendly confines of Johnny Unitas Stadium, but the No. 21 Blue Hens would also have to pull off the upset without starting junior quarterback Trent Hurley, who was injured in the team's 35-13 rout of Rhode Island a week ago. But Delaware did the unthinkable, scoring 22 unanswered points in the last 12 minutes of the fourth quarter to stun Towson, 32-31, before an announced 8,741.
