The Blue Hens are trending in the right direction after a rebuilding period that followed their 32-win run in 2012-13 with Elena Delle Donne, earning their first postseason berth in four years. They came close to a CAA Tournament run but lost a semifinal to Drexel in overtime. The roster’s top seven scorers from last year were scheduled to return, but CAA player of the year Nicole Enabosi (18 points and 12 rebounds per game) will miss the season with an ACL injury. Junior Samone DeFreese is an effective slasher who came through with 11.3 points and 7.4 rebounds per contest. This will be just the second year in Delaware for head coach Natasha Adair, who ran the show at Georgetown for three years.
