NEWARK, Del. - After giving up a double-digit first-half lead and forging a tie late in the game, Drexel lost to Delaware, 62-58, yesterday at the Bob Carpenter Center. The Dragons led by 13 points in the first half and held a 33-26 edge at intermission, but the Blue Hens took control in the second half to even their Colonial Athletic Association record at 1-1. They are 5-8 overall. "Give them credit," Drexel coach Bruiser Flint said. "Their guys played harder than our guys in the second half, and that was the game.

Suffering from a high ankle sprain a few hours earlier, Delaware senior 6-foot-8 forward Harding Nana fought off the pain yesterday to score 25 points as the Blue Hens beat Drexel, 75-68, in a Colonial Athletic Association game at the Bob Carpenter Center. Nana, who enabled the Blue Hens (7-17, 3-12 CAA) to end a four-game losing streak, also matched a career high with 19 rebounds. Zaire Taylor added 17 points, and Calvin Cannon scored 10 points for the Blue Hens, who led by 38-19 at the half.

ELENA DELLE DONNE did it again, this time scoring a game-high 21 points to lead Delaware past Drexel, 60-49, in women's basketball action yesterday at the Bob Carpenter Center. Akeema Richards added 14 points and 10 rebounds and Danielle Parker and Lauren Carra netted 10 apiece as Delaware (14-1, 7-0 CAA) defeated its Colonial Athletic Association rival in front of a crowd that set the single-game on-campus record for attendance at a women's game (5,021). The win marked the sixth in a row for the No. 16-ranked Blue Hens, who are led by Delle Donne, the nation's leading scorer.

NEWARK, Del. - The success that all-American Elena Delle Donne has experienced at Delaware isn't a surprise to North Carolina coach Sylvia Hatchell. Delle Donne had just finished seventh grade when she attended a basketball camp run by Hatchell in Chapel Hill. "Not only was she a big girl for her age, but her skill level was unbelievable," said Hatchell, who added that she offered Delle Donne a scholarship to North Carolina on the spot. Delle Donne declined, and now the 6-foot-5 senior is poised to go up against the Tar Heels on Tuesday night at the Bob Carpenter Center in the second round of the NCAA tournament.

NEWARK, Del. - Just about the only type of game Drexel had not lost this season was of the double-overtime variety. Bruiser Flint and the Dragons can check that one off their list after falling to Delaware, 73-71, Thursday night at the Bob Carpenter Center. The Dragons (11-16, 7-8 Colonial Athletic Association) were in foul trouble heading into the first overtime. By the end of the second, four players - essentially Drexel's entire frontcourt - had fouled out. The Dragons finished with 32 team fouls.

Lorenzo Brown participated in his own day-night doubleheader. The rookie point guard went down to the 76ers' NBA Development League affiliate, the Delaware 87ers, on Monday morning. He played in a 99-87 victory over the Austin Toros at the University of Delaware's Bob Carpenter Center. Then Brown rejoined the NBA team in time for the game against the Phoenix Suns on Monday night at the Wells Fargo Center. "AAU all the way. It's crazy," said Brown, jokingly comparing Monday to when he played in several games in Amateur Athletic Union tournaments as a teenager.

WHEN ROBERT Covington went undrafted after four productive seasons at Tennessee State, he wasn't sure where his future in basketball might take him. Most assuredly he didn't have in his mind that Rio Grand Valley, Texas, would be his steppingstone to the NBA. After signing a contract with the Rockets in the summer of 2013, Covington yo-yoed between Houston and the Rio Grand Valley Vipers, of the NBA Development League, for the entire season....

Isaiah Canaan has been searching for a happy medium since the day the Houston Rockets traded him to the 76ers. At Murray State and with the Rockets, the point guard was known more for raining three-pointers than running an offense. With the Sixers, the second-year player replaced a guy in Michael Carter-Williams who was the complete opposite. "It's a new team and new players," said Canaan, whom the Sixers acquired along with a second-round pick in exchange for K.J. McDaniels on Feb. 19. "I've got to get used to them, and they've got to get used to me and find a happy medium and see how we can relate.

NEWARK, Del. - Even by the standards of the NBA's Development League, Tuesday's game between the Delaware 87ers and the Sioux Falls Skyforce was contested in front of a sparse crowd in the Bob Carpenter Center on the campus of the University of Delaware. The predicted snowstorm meant very few bought advance tickets and, of those who did, many accepted the team's invitation to choose another game ahead of time. So the teams - the 87ers are an owned-and-operated affiliate of the 76ers - played the game in relative solitude, mostly in order to fill in the blank spaces on the box score and to move another day closer to whatever might come next.

NEWARK, Del. - The players came out for pregame layups with little buzz in the crowd. As with a lot of minor-league sports, the game itself wasn't the main attraction to many in attendance. For some youngsters it was a fun night out, watching the 76ers' NBA Development League team, the Delaware 87ers, compete while also participating in other activities that were offered as the game was being played. The players view it as much more, a way to lift themselves out of obscurity and into basketball's big time.

THE 87ERS, the Sixers' NBA Development League affiliate, were going to have two things their parent club doesn't: Wins and Allen Iverson. But Iverson, who was scheduled to make an appearance at the 87ers' first home game of the season tonight, fell ill. A spokesperson said the team plans to reschedule the Answer for a later date. That still leaves those wins, which - for Sixers fans - are more than worth the trip. The Sevens, as they like to be called, have three victories in four games.

NEWARK, Del. - Royce White called it "being a little over-physical. " But no one in the 76ers organization found fault with his performance. Just being able to play in a preseason game was a bonus. It was an experience that the 6-foot-8, 260-pounder waited a year for. So despite nearly fouling out, White was all smiles following the Sixers' 97-85 preseason victory over the Boston Celtics at the University of Delaware's Bob Carpenter Center. He entered the game with 6 minutes, 3 seconds left in the first half.

NEWARK, Del. - The dreary weather and Friday night traffic made it impossible to get to the 76ers-Boston Celtics preseason game at Bob Carpenter Center at the University of Delaware any quicker than at a snail's pace. Once inside, however, it was a regular track meet. The 76ers and Celtics are both in the same position: rebuilding mode. For coaches Brett Brown and Brad Stevens, that means a ton of faced-paced basketball with not a whole bunch of guys who are very good right now at accomplishing it. The Sixers did it a little better, and fueled by 20 points from Thaddeus Young, 17 for Spencer Hawes, 16 from James Anderson, and 12 for Evan Turner, they defeated the Celtics, 97-85, in front of an energetic, sellout crowd.

NEWARK, Del. - It had taken a long slog down I-95, a ride soaked by rain and slowed by traffic, for the Sixers' team bus to make it here to the Bob Carpenter Center on Friday night, but their late arrival hadn't dulled Brett Brown's enthusiasm for sharing a sentimental story from his boyhood. Growing up in Maine in the 1960s, Brown said, he'd curl up on the floor, sitting at his grandfather's knee in front of the fireplace, a Boston Celtics game on TV. "You couldn't help but watch them all the time," he said, and this was particularly true when he was young and the Celtics were nearing the end of their dynastic era. Now he was little more than an hour from facing them for the first time as an NBA head coach, and even for a mostly meaningless preseason game, this was something special for him. "You can't help but pay attention a little bit more and feel a little different," he said, "especially when . . . you grow up in that part of the world.
