2012 CAA Tournament Championship Game, Drexel Vs. VCU, Halftime Score: Dragons Trail, 35-19

The Drexel Dragons trails the VCU Rams, 35-19, at halftime in the CAA Tournament Championship Game from the Richmond Coliseum in Richmond, Va.

VCU appeared to have learned from their regular season loss to Drexel in the first half of the CAA Championship Game on Monday. The Rams turned Drexel over 11 times in that meeting on Jan. 8 but the Rams' pressure has caused plenty of problems for the Dragons in this game. Tonight in the first half alone, Drexel has already committed 12 turnovers, seven of them coming on VCU steals. The extra possessions for VCU have helped the Rams build their double-digit lead. The smothering defense has also held Drexel to just 25% shooting at the half.

Frantz Massenat leads Drexel with eight points at the half. Damion Lee and Chris Fouch chipped in five and four points apiece for the Dragons in the first half. Darius Theus leads VCU at the half with 10 points on 5/6 shooting. He also has three assists and three steals. Troy Daniels scored seven points for the Rams in the first half.
