Drexel drops 2nd straight OT game, 86-84, to Illinois State

From Corey Seidman of CSN Philly: The Drexel Dragons have had some heartbreak early, losing their first two games of the season in overtime to Kent State and Illinois State.

Howard Smith-US PRESSWIRE

Leading by two with 11 seconds to play, senior guard Derrick Thomas stepped to the foul line in hopes of giving Drexel a two-possession lead. But he missed the front end of a one-and-one, allowing Illinois State to tie the game and eventually win in overtime, 86-84.

It was the Dragons’ second overtime loss in six days; they lost by four in OT at Kent State last Friday.
