ROUNDUP: Hen women’s six-game win streak ends with Drexel loss

A tough second quarter ended up being the difference Sunday afternoon as Delaware’s six-game winning streak came to an end with a 54-44 loss to Drexel in CAA women’s basketball at the Carpenter Center.

Down by just four at the end of the first quarter, the Dragons (16-6, 7-4 CAA) outscored the Blue Hens, 23-10, in the second. Delaware held Drexel to just 15 second-half points, but it was too little too late.

Sophomore Nicole Enabosi led the Hens (13-9, 7-4 CAA) with 17 points and 10 rebounds for her seventh double-double in nine games. Senior Erika Brown added eight points, two rebounds and two assists.

Brown moved into 10th place on the school’s all-time scoring list and now has 1,281 career points.

The Dragons have won three straight and five of the last six over the Hens.
