The Drexel Dragons lead the UCF Knights, 37-24, at halftime from Daskalakis Athletic Center.
Drexel jumped on the Knights early and ran out to a 9-0 lead before conceding a basket. Every time UCF was able to close the gap from that initial lead, Drexel was able to score and give themselves a cushion. Towards the end of the half, Drexel making shots while their defense prevented the Knights from hitting anything allowed the lead to balloon to double-digits. There were few turnovers from either team but Drexel hit 7-12 from behind the arc while UCF was only 3-9. Drexel finished the half above 50% from the field while UCF was held to just 31%.
