Drexel Vs. Old Dominion Recap: Drexel Ends Season With 17th Straight Win

The Drexel Dragons ended their regular season on Saturday with their 17th consecutive victory, a one-point win over the Old Dominion Monarchs. The 19-12 Monarchs put up a fight on their home court and kept the game close throughout the second half, although they never led after being up 19-17 in the first half.

Led by Damion Lee, who had 24 points on 17 shots, four of Drexel's five starters scored in double figures, but the star of the game was Old Dominion's Kent Bazemore. Bazemore scored a game-high 37 points on 23 shots. He also added 12 rebounds (five offensive), three assists and two steals. Unfortunately Bazemore didn't get much help – his teammates scored 35 points combined, on 27 percent shooting.

Despite their impressive regular season credentials, including a CAA title, the Dragons will probably have to win the CAA post-season tourney, where they'll be the one seed, to get an NCAA tournament bid.
