    DURHAM, N.C. -- Desi Washington scored 22 points and Delaware State defeated North Carolina Central 68-59 on Saturday.

    Washington was 7 of 12 from the field, including 5 of 7 from long range in leading the Hornets' 3-point shooting attack.

    Delaware State (5-8) was 7 of 16 from behind the arc in the game (43.8 percent), including 4 of 7 in the first half (57.1 percent).

    The Hornets trailed 6-4 early before Washington made three straight 3s to spark a 13-0 run. Casey Walker's layup put Delaware State ahead 17-6 with 10:14 left in the first half. The Eagles would get no closer than seven the rest of the way.
