NEWARK – The Blue Hens (4-3) returned home from a two-game losing skid falling to Austin Peay 76-75 and a (21) point lost to Northern Kentucky in Ohio to face Division III Bryn Athyn Sunday afternoon. I’m not sure why the Lions were even on the schedule this year. However, Delaware trounced Bryn Athyn 84-51 Sunday afternoon at The Bob Carpenter Sports Convocation Center in Newark.
