Vitelli shot an outstanding seven of nine from the field, knocking down six of seven from beyond with arc. The Devils trailed the Wildcats after the first quarter but surged back to outscore Wilmington through the second 27-9 to take a 41-28 lead into the half. The game saw just two ties and two lead changes and at one point a 20 point lead by the home team. The Devils improve to 8-2 overall and 3-1 in the CACC.
