January 23, 2021 –
Last Sunday the Drexel Dragons lost a game to the William & Mary Tribe in a most unusual way, at the foul line. The team wanted to get the bitter taste out of their mouth, but were not slated to play at Elon during the weekend due to COVID restrictions. However, in a twist of fate William & Mary had their games at Charleston postponed. So, with an open weekend they played each other in Virginia. Drexel took this game 79 – 64 and won two of three in the unscheduled series.
The Dragons relied on their one-two punch of James Butler and Camren Wynter who scored 21 and 19 points accounting for over half of the Drexel total. Combined the duo made 15 of 20 from the field and 9 of 10 from the free throw line. Mate Okros contributed 12 markers.
The second half was the key for the Dragons who converted 15 of 22 field goal attempts, 4 of 9 from beyond the arc. Foul shooting practice took a focus and the Dragons made 11 of 13.
The Tribe went cold in the second half and were good on 11 of 33 field goal attempts. They also got 14 free throws making 11. The charity stripe would not provide the difference.
Luke Loewe scored a team-high 15 points for W&M while Quinn Blair added 12 points. Yuri Covington scored 11 points.
Drexel (7 – 5, 2 – 3) host Northeastern next weekend.
