Virginia Picks Up Road Win at Delaware
NEWARK, Del. -- Curtis Staples scored a game-high 19 points and tied his career high with nine rebounds to lead the University of Virginia men's basketball team to a 64-57 victory at the University of Delaware on Tuesday (Nov. 25).
The victory was the third in a row for UVa and improved the Cavaliers' record to 3-1 on the season. Delaware lost its third consecutive game and is now 1-3.
Staples, Virginia's career leader in three-point field goals, made three field goals from behind the three-point line against the Blue Hens, giving him 301 three-point field goals for his career. The senior guard from Roanoke, Va., is the 27th player in NCAA history to make 300 three-point field goals in a career.
Staples was one of four players to score in double figures for the Cavaliers in the victory over Delaware. Senior forward Norman Nolan scored 14 points, sophomore forward/center Colin Ducharme had 11 points and freshman guard Donald Hand added 10 points.
Hand sparked a 9-0 Virginia run at the end of the first half that gave the Cavaliers a 25-19 halftime lead. He scored seven of the Cavaliers' points in the run including a three-pointer that gave UVa the lead for good at 21-19 with 4:45 left in the half.
Virginia held the Blue Hens scoreless for the final 7:49 of the first half and the first 2:48 of the second half.
The Cavaliers led by as many as 14 points in the second half (44-30 with 8:42 left in the game) before Delaware mounted a comeback. The Blue Hens got as close as 61-57 with 29 seconds left in the game.
Kestutis Marciulionis scored 16 points to lead three Delaware players in double figures. Keith Davis added 14 points and Mike Pegues scored 12 points. Darryl Presley grabbed a game-high 10 rebounds.
Virginia limited Delaware to 29 percent shooting from the field (18-62) and out-rebounded the Blue Hens 41-39.
The Cavaliers return to action on Tuesday, Dec. 2, when they host Appalachian State in a 7:30 p.m. game at University Hall.
