NEWARK, Del. (AP) Devon Saddler scored 21 points and became Delaware's all-time leading scorer as the Blue Hens remained perfect in conference play, beating Northeastern 80-67 on Monday.

Saddler needed 20 to tie the record held by Mike Pegues at 2,030. Saddler broke the record on a free throw with 4:04 remaining and was immediately subbed out to a standing ovation from the home crowd. He was 7 of 19 from the field, made three 3-pointers, 4 of 4 free throws and had eight assists.
