Delaware Blue Coats Drain 21 Triples in Back and Forth Battle with Skyhawks

On December 27th the Delaware Blue Coats took on the College Park Skyhawks in the 76ers Fieldhouse. It was a back and forth affair with the Blue Coats draining a season-high 21 triples and amassing 125 points. Unfortunately though it wasn’t enough, as the Skyhawks came away with the win with a final score of 132-125.

In front of a sellout crowd the game saw a whopping 17 lead changes and 9 different tied scores throughout the match. Rookie Marial Shayok posted a game-high 29 points with 6 rebounds in 29 minutes of play. The rookie drained a career-high 6 three-point shots.

Delaware’s previous season-high total for 3-point field goals made was 20, set on Dec. 17 in a road win at Greensboro. The Blue Coats led 79-78 at halftime after a Shayok three-pointer beat the first half buzzer. The team’s 21 triples came on a season-high 46 attempts from downtown, good for its second-highest 3-point field goal percentage (.457) of the season.
