The 13th-seeded University of Delaware Blue Hens, the 2014 #CAAHoops champions, stretched their wings on Wednesday, getting a better feel for the NCAA Tournament venue in Spokane, Washington. UD had time for some final practice preparation leading up to the team’s second round tilt with fourth-seeded Michigan State and answered questions at a press conference after.

The provocative in-depth coverage done by the UD athletic department continued yesterday, covering the team practicing during  a walk-through, and catching up with the team during a media press conference.
