VCU, William and Mary suffer tough road losses

Sunday's CAA results:

UNC Wilmington 80, William and Mary 77: Another close, high-scoring loss for the Tribe (9-13, 2-9 CAA), a frustrating companion to their 100-97 loss to Hofstra, the 82-75 loss to Hofstra and 83-80 loss to VCU. Emily Correal had 22 points, Janine Aldridge added 19 (17 in the second half), Jaclyn McKenna chipped in 14 points and 10 rebounds and  birthday girl Taysha Pye contributed 13 points. But once again the Tribe gave up points as fast as the scored them. If you're just a fan of women's basketball and want to see some entertaining hoops, this is the team to check out. But if you're a William and Mary fan - or player, for that matter - this has to be getting really old. The good news is that most teams with a 2-9 conference record simply aren't good enough to do much better. This team is plenty good enough; they just need to start getting it done. Tawanna Lee had 21 points and 6 assists to lead the surging Seahawks (14-8, 7-4), who won for the sixth time in seven games.

No. 12 Delaware 68, VCU 49: Pretty clean performance by the powerful Blue Hens (20-1, 11-0 CAA), who shot 51 percent from the field, hit 17 of 21 free throws, had four double-figure scorers, won the rebounding battle by 11 and committed just 9 turnovers in winning their 10th straight. Courtney Hurt had 19 points and 12 rebounds and Andrea Barbour added 17 points. But it took those two 40 shots to combine for those 36 points. For the game the Rams (13-9, 6-5) shot just 32.2 percent from the field.
