Delaware allows career-high 30 points to Navy's Bryce Dulin in loss

BOX SCORE

ANNAPOLIS, Md. -- Bryce Dulin scored a career-high 30 points with 8-for-12 shooting to lead Navy to an 82-76 win over Delaware on Friday night.

Shawn Anderson added 20 points for Navy (6-3), which shot 51 percent from the field and was 26 for 35 from the line. Dulin was 4 of 6 from behind the arc and sank all but one of his 11 free throws.

Navy raced out to a 15-point lead in the second half before Delaware (4-4) rallied with a 20-1 run to take the lead 47-43 with 12:45 to play. Kevin Anderson sank the go-ahead 3-pointer during the comeback run.

Cam Davis then fueled an 8-0 burst for Navy with a pair of 3-pointers as the teams battled through three lead changes and two ties over the next nearly five minutes. A pair of free throws from Tyler Riemersma gave Navy the lead for good and Bryce Dulin quickly padded it with a 3-pointer to make it 62-58 with 7:33 left.

The Midshipmen, who hadn't played Delaware since 1993, held off the Blue Hens the rest of the way.

Ryan Daly's 23 points led five Delaware players in double figures.

BOX SCORE

Ryan Betley and Caleb Wood scored 13 points apiece and Pennsylvania used a big first half to roll past Navy 66-45 on Wednesday night.

The Quakers (1-2) have their first win of the season, and bounced back from a 75-71 double-overtime loss to La Salle on Monday night.

Penn opened the game on a 17-2 run and built a 43-16 halftime lead. Betley and Wood each had 11 points in the first half as the Quakers shot 55 percent (16 of 29) from the floor and made six 3-pointers. Navy (1-2) made just 6 of 29 field goals and committed 11 turnovers in the first half.

Hasan Abdullah led the Midshipmen with eight points.
