NIT 2012, Drexel Vs. UCF, Halftime Score: Dragons Lead, 37-24

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%.

Drexel got balanced scoring from Damion Lee, Derrick Thomas, Frantz Massenat and Chris Fouch who all scored at least five points. Keith Clanton led UCF with 9 points.
