Jessica Goetz added 12 points off the bench as teammates Emily Brinker and Adrianna Stephens both finished with 10 points each. Twenty Spartans saw action with 14 Spartans scoring in the victory and UD's bench out scored the host Beavers 51-24. The Spartans are averaging 97.5 points a game in four contests this season.
