LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – The University of Delaware’s dream journey came to an abrupt end Tuesday night as the Blue Hen women’s basketball squad fell to (11) Kansas 70-64 in the second round of the NCAA Tournament at UALR’s Jack Stephens Arena.
Despite a six-point halftime lead and another heroic effort from All-American Elena Delle Donne, the No. 7-ranked and third-seeded Hens (31-2) could not extend this dream season and lost out on a treasured trip the NCAA Sweet 16.
Delle Donne finished the night with a game-high 34 points but the Hens couldn’t get more than eight from any other player and had their school-record 21-game win streak snapped.
