    PRINCETON, N.J. -- Elena Delle Donne scored 32 points to help Delaware (No. 24 AP) beat Princeton 81-70 on Thursday night.

    This was the Blue Hens' (5-0) first-ever game as a ranked team as they entered the poll Monday.

    Delle Donne is a huge reason why the Blue Hens are unbeaten and in the Top 25. She's leading the nation in scoring averaging 30 points.

    Behind their 6-foot-5 star, Delaware scored the game's first 14 points as the Tigers missed their first eight shots and had three turnovers. She had four points during the spurt, including the game's first basket on a nifty spin move.

    Princeton (6-1) was finally able to score 5 minutes in and closed within 21-15, but the Blue Hens put the game away with a 19-4 run.
