The University of Delaware women’s basketball team will advance to the CAA Championship after they defeated the Towson University Tigers 56-55. If you are a fan of dramatic endings, this game had just that as Delaware was losing 55-54 with 11 seconds left in the game, but Sophomore guard Tyi Skinner hit two free throws with less than .4 seconds left to seal the 56-55 win. The Blue Hens will play Drexel on Sunday in the CAA Championship.

Senior guard/forward Jasmine Dickey was the leading scorer for the Blue Hens as she had 22 points. Dickey also had a double-double on the night as she collected 16 rebounds with her 22 points.
