Cape boys Continued from page 80 "I'm proud of this team and everything they've been able to accomplish from the Slam Dunk to the Henlopen Conference championship," Waples said. Cape was led in scoring by Ronson Burton with 14 and Olin Bolden who scored 13. Cape had 24 official turnovers for the ball game. Bruce Davis paced the Colonials with 17 points. Coach Steve Johnson was asked whether his team will follow Xavier in the NCAA this weekend with Colonial graduates Lenny Brown and Gary Lumpkin in the starting backcourt. '`They better not be staying up late watching those guys," John- son said. "We need to get better if we hope to keep winning." Cleverness gets you a second or two on national television. Blue Hens Continued from page 81 those girls sure look healthy." Delaware took a three-point lead, 29-26, into the second half but the early emotion ebbed as Boston University surged into the lead 40-35. Then finally the "Lithuanian Lefty," Kestutis Mar- ciulionis, who shot 0-6 in the first half, stroked a three-point jumper from dead corner to bring Delaware to within 40-38, setting up the game's most dramatic play. Keith Davis of Delaware pene- trated down the lane drawing the defense to the left then executed a "no look" pass to the right base- line into the hands of Darryl Pres- ley who dunked "dead in the face" of Boston's Walter Brown. The game was tied but the home crowd sensed it was "game time." Cheerleaders were sent skyward tumbling and twisting back to earth like Greg Louganis off a div- ing platform. Young men with no shirts, their chests marked with single blue letters, roared into testosterone overdrive. The drum and brass section of the band flipped out into a rousing rendition of "Can't Turn You Loose." The "Twilight Zone" returned to "The Bob" like a "Riot in Rwan- da" as students stormed the court a split second before the game's fi- nal buzzer. Hundreds of non- scholarship athletes hurdled the press tables but most missed, knocking laptops al long lens cameras to the hardwood. Mike Pegues sat atop the basket with a large cardboard ticket to the NCAA tournament. It was the biggest indoor party, without a beer tap, in the history of Delaware. -- Serving Sussex for 33 Years -- .

"We didn't play defense," said Smith. "I know we could have beat them. I think we had a great sea- son, though. I think we surprised a lot of people, even our own fans. We proved everybody wrong. I know even my dad said to the Sus- sex Tech coach, 'Take it easy on the Cape girls,' before the first game of the season. But we ended up 21 and 3. It was a lot of fun." "Overall, we did well," said Waples of WAPLES her senior sea- son on the Cape squad. We played together, we became a family through the season." "We weren't picked to be any- where near where we finished," said McCullough. "The last game was disappointing, but looking back on the wholo season, I'm hap- py. I'm pleased with the fact that the girls never gave up. They came in working hard at practice and at games. And with Lewes team un- defeated and Milton with only three losses, I'm looking forward to a good season next year, too."
