Following their too-close-for-comfort win over the Colonial Athletic Association's worst team, the Towson Tigers, the fifth-seeded Delaware Blue Hens will take on the fourth-seeded Old Dominion Monarchs Saturday afternoon in the second round of the conference tournament with a spot in the semifinals on the line.
The Blue Hens will try to coax another massive scoring game out of sophomore guard Devon Saddler, who poured in 28 in the Towson game. Paired with freshman guard Jarvis Threatt, who scored 15 despite shooting just 3-for-12, the Fightin' Blue Hens' backcourt is young, fearless and talented.
Whether it can match Old Dominion, a team SB Nation's Bill Connelly called the conference's dark horse, will be the question of the day. In the previous matchup, the Monarchs won by just two in January, but there's no telling how a team will respond to the pressure-packed atmosphere of a conference tournament. If history is any indication, ODU will be up to the challenge; they upset George Mason and VCU to win the tournament last year.
The game will tip off at 2:30 p.m. ET. You can watch the game live on CAASports.com, or you can listen to the live audio on the CAA mobile app.
