Radford 58, Delaware 54

Freshman R.J. Price scored Radford’s last seven points,

including two 3-pointers and a free throw in the final 71 seconds,

to give the Highlanders a thrilling 58-54 upset of Delaware Friday

night in coach Mike Jones’ debut.

Delaware trailed for much of the night before taking a 53-51

lead on two Jamelle Hagins foul shots. Price then hit a 3-pointer

with 1:11 left to regain the lead. After Delaware misfired, Price

hit another 3-pointer with 22 seconds remaining and a free throw

with seven seconds left to clinch it.

Price and Jareal Smith scored 13 points apiece, each making

three 3-pointers. Radford was 8 for 27 from the arc, Delaware 2 for

14. The Blue Hens didn’t score a basket in the final 5:26.

Devon Saddler led Delaware with 18 points but hit just 5 of 22

shots. Jamelle Higgins had 17 points and nine rebounds for the Blue

Hens.
