TOWSON, Md. (AP) -- Elena Delle Donne, the leading scorer in Division I, and Lauren Carra each scored 15 points and No. 16 Delaware stretched its winning streak to five with a 65-46 victory over Towson on Thursday.

Delle Donne, a 6-foot-5 junior, entered the game averaging 29.3 points, but the 15 points were a season low for her as the Blue Hens (15-1, 6-0 Colonial Athletic Association) stayed on a roll.

She struggled from the field, making only four of 11 shots as Towson (11-6, 2-4) constantly double-teamed her.

Delle Donne didn't score a basket until 17:46 remained in the game. She scored seven points in the first half and eight in the second half -- all of which came in a stretch of under six minutes and didn't score for the final 11 minutes, 29 seconds.
