Dickey exploded for a career-high in Bob Carpenter Center record of 52 points (18-of-33 FG, 3-of-5 3FG, 13-of-14 FT). She also tied her career-best 18 rebounds (10 offensive) to post her eighth double-double on the season, adding four assists, three steals and one block to her stat line.

Prior to open tip, head coach Natasha Adair was celebrated for netting her 150th-career win.

"The chemistry of this group, this is a group that they want to win," said Adair. "Coming into this game, we talked about the things that we needed to do. There are 10 conference-regular season games left and it is time for us to continue climbing but doing it the "Delaware way". That means we do it with defense, we do it with sharing the ball, we run, we rebound. I thought Charleston did a great job attacking the rim and getting paint points, but we got second-chance opportunities. We can rebound the ball, we are top in the conference and country in rebounding. I thought it was a very good team effort." 

After seeing Charleston take a 16-12 lead, Ty Battle laid in two at the 2:29 mark to ignite a 14-2 Blue Hen run. The run was capped by Dickey setting herself up behind the arc and buried Battle's feed for Delaware to take the 26-18 lead into the second quarter.
