NEWARK, Del.
Elena Delle Donne scored 33 points and led a second-half surge that carried Delaware past West Virginia 66-53 Sunday in the opening round of the NCAA tournament.

Playing on their home floor before a sellout crowd, the sixth-seeded Blue Hens trailed 33-26 at halftime before bouncing back to extend their school-record winning streak to 26 games.

Delaware (31-3) had never won an NCAA tournament game before last year. The Blue Hens have yet to reach the round of 16, a milestone they will seek to accomplish Tuesday night against either North Carolina or Albany.

Delle Donne, a 6-foot-5 senior, scored 20 points after halftime. She finished 10 for 24 from the floor, went 12 for 13 at the foul line and had seven rebounds.

Ayana Dunning had 15 points and 10 rebounds for 11th-seeded West Virginia (17-14), which closed the season with a four-game losing streak.
