The Drexel Dragons amazing run continued today as they defeated Old Dominion 68-51 to advance to the CAA title game. The game extended Drexel's win streak to 19. They will now face the winner of the VCU Vs George Mason matchup, which takes place at 4:30pm today in Richmond. The final will be played Monday on ESPN at 7pm.
But as for today's game, Drexel started out cold shooting, but their stifling defense kept in control pretty much throughout the contest. ODU, who scored 88 against Delaware just a night ago, was held to just 17 in the first half. It took them five minutes to score their first points of the game.
On offense Drexel employed a balanced attack with four of their five starters in double figures. Frantz Massenat led the Dragons with 20 points, Samme Givens scored 12 and grabbed 12 boards while Chris Fouch had 16, including a dagger of a three pointer just as ODU was starting to make a run late in the second half.
The Dragons can officially punch their ticket to NCAA Tournament by winning the CAA Tournament tomorrow.
