    HARRISONBURG, Va. -- Elena Delle Donne scored 23 points and Delaware (No. 16 ESPN/USA Today, No. 15 AP) rallied from a seven-point deficit to beat James Madison 72-65 on Sunday night.

    The Blue Hens (18-1, 9-0 Colonial Athletic Association) made 33 of 37 free throws and snapped a nine-game losing streak to James Madison, which beat them in the 2011 CAA championship game.

    Lauren Carra added a season-high 22 points for Delaware, which trailed 58-51 with 7 1/2 left in the game.

    Delle Donne scored the next five points and the Blue Hens went on an 11-3 run over the next 3 minutes. Danielle Parker's jumper with 5:28 left gave the Blue Hens the lead for good. Delaware hit eight of 10 free throws down the stretch to seal the victory.

    Tarik Hislop -- who scored her 1,000th career point on a jumper at the 8:57 mark in the first half -- led the Dukes (15-5, 6-3) with 17 points. Kirby Burkholder added 15.
