Delaware St. 73, Delaware 67

Tahj Tate scored 24 points and Amere May hit a late, tying

3-pointer in regulation as Delaware State posted a 73-67 overtime

victory over Delaware Saturday.

Tate, who grabbed 10 rebounds, and Tyshawn Bell (15 points) led

the Hornets (5-5) throughout much of the game. But May’s trey – his

only 3-point attempt – with 4.8 seconds left in regulation tied it

at 60-all and forced overtime.

Then Tate and Bell assumed control. Bell began the OT scoring

with a 3-pointer, later making two free throws. Bell’s shooting was

superb. He was 4 for 5 from the floor – including all three of his

3-point attempts – and made 4 for 4 at the foul line.

For Delaware (3-7), Devon Saddler scored 16 points, and Jamelle

Hagins had a 15-15 double-double. The Blue Hens led 60-57 in

regulation after Terrell Rogers’ two free throws, but then May’s

3-pointer forced overtime.
