BALTIMORE (AP) David Walker scored 17 points and Quincy Ford had 16 as third-seeded Northeastern edged No. 6 seed Delaware 67-64 in the Colonial Athletic Association tournament quarterfinals on Saturday night.

Zach Stahl added 13 points and six rebounds for the Huskies (21-11) who move on to face No. 2 seed UNC-Wilmington in the CAA tournament semifinals on Sunday.
