WILLIAMSBURG, Va. -- David Schneider scored 16 points and grabbed eight rebounds to lead William & Mary to a 67-54 win over Delaware on Wednesday night.

Marcus Witt finished with 13 points and Quinn McDowell added 11 for the Tribe (17-7, 9-5 Colonial Athletic Association), who have won two games in a row.

William & Mary, which shot 51.2 percent from the floor (21-for-41), held a 12-point lead early in the second half until the Blue Hens cut the margin to 53-50 on a free throw by Adam Pegg with 6:38 to play.

But the Tribe answered with nine straight points, led by Schneider's four points, to build a 62-50 advantage with 3:54 left. Delaware (6-18, 2-11) could not get closer than 10 the rest of the way.

Jawan Carter led the Blue Hens with a game-high 17 points and six assists. Alphonso Dawson had 12 points and Jamelle Hagins pulled down 10 rebounds.
