RICHMOND, Va. -- Frank Hassell scored 24 points and sparked a 15-4 second-half run with a three-point play Saturday night, leading second-seeded Old Dominion to a 59-50 victory against Delaware in the quarterfinals of the Colonial Athletic Association tournament.
Kent Bazemore added 11 points in the seventh straight win for the Monarchs (25-6).
Old Dominion's run came after the Blue Hens pulled even at 35 with 10:15 remaining.
Saddler's 3-pointer tied it at 35, but Hassell scored, was fouled and made the free throw, and Trian Iliadis followed with a basket for ODU. After a floater by Carter, Old Dominion's Keyon Carter hit back-to-back baskets and Bazemore added two free throws.
Delaware never got closer than six thereafter.
