What to Know
The Norfolk State Spartans are 10-1 against the Delaware State Hornets since February of 2016, and they’ll have a chance to extend that success on Wednesday. Norfolk State and Delaware State will face off in an MEAC battle at 7:30 p.m. ET at Echols Hall. The Spartans won both of their matches against Delaware State last season (94-66 and 86-55) and are aiming for the same result this time around.
The contest between Norfolk State and the New Mexico Lobos three weeks ago was not a total blowout, but with Norfolk State falling 68-54 on the road, it was darn close to turning into one. The losing side was boosted by guard Joe Bryant Jr., who had 16 points in addition to six rebounds. Bryant Jr. had some trouble finding his footing against the Wichita State Shockers four weeks ago, so this was a step in the right direction.
Meanwhile, it’s never fun to lose, and it’s even less fun to lose 85-48, which was the final score in Delaware State’s tilt against the Temple Owls three weeks ago. The top scorer for the Hornets was Myles Carter (19 points).
The losses put the Spartans at 9-4 and Delaware State at 2-11. Norfolk State is 1-2 after losses this year, Delaware State 1-9.
