Forward Regan Benson scored twice and dished off for two more as Utah Valley pounded Delaware State 5-0 Monday night. For her efforts Benson was named the Great West Conference Player of the Week.

On Friday, the No. 3 seed NJIT faces No. 6 seed Howard at 4 p.m., followed by No. 4 seed Delaware State playing No. 5 seed South Carolina State at 7 p.m.

The semifinals will be played on Saturday, with No. 2 seed Houston Baptist against the winner of NJIT-Howard at 4 p.m. Top-seed Utah Valley will entertain the winner of DSU-SCSU at 7 p.m.
