The Blue Hens have never beaten Villanova in basketball in 15 tries, and they’re really not supposed to. If they did, it would be cause for spontaneous celebration on Newark’s East Main Street. Four of the last six basketball losses have only been by 10 points or less.
The University of Delaware’s traditional football superiority over Delaware State continued Saturday night in the schools’ first-ever collision at DSU’s Alumni Stadium. The Hornets did have moments where they held their own defensively and also blocked two punts against the visiting Blue Hens. But they also proved to be overly gracious hosts.
