Delaware Notes 

Most recently, Delaware participated in the Nassau Championship, similar to Ohio. During the tournament, the teams did not face one another but did face a common opponent in George Washington. 

Each team fell to the Revolutionaries. Ohio lost in double-overtime 99-94, while Delaware struggled to keep pace in its 81-71 defeat. 

Player to Watch 

Jyáre Davis — In Delaware’s most recent game with George Washington, Davis led the team with 23 points and 9 rebounds. Davis, a forward standing at 6 feet, 7 inches, will be someone Ohio may have trouble stopping, given his size and athletic ability.
