WILMINGTON, N.C. -- Chad Tomko scored 23 points and grabbed eight rebounds as North Carolina-Wilmington defeated Delaware 76-53 on Wednesday night.
Keith Rendleman added 15 points and 11 rebounds before fouling out with three minutes left as the Seahawks (9-7, 3-2 Colonial Athletic Association) sent the Blue Hens (7-8, 2-3) to their 23rd consecutive conference road loss. It also was Delaware's seventh consecutive loss on the Seahawks' home floor.
Tomko and Donte Morales (11 points) led the Seahawks' long-range attack, combining to make 7 of 9 from 3-point range. UNC Wilmington made 10 of 17 3-pointers overall, using the outside attack to negate Jamelle Hagins' shot-blocking presence inside.
Hagins battled foul trouble, blocked five shots and grabbed seven rebounds, but also shot only 1 of 11 from the field.
