The Drexel Dragons are looking to stay not when the Towson Tigers take the floor at the Daskalakis Athletic Center.
It's going to take a big effort on the part of the Towson Tigers to get back in the CAA race because at 4-8 they probably need to sweep their remaining games and get some help. The Tigers haven't been helping their cause lately with defeats in three of four after falling to visiting James Madison 63-61 on Saturday as a three point favorite. Towson had a solid 45%-39% shooting edge but the Dukes hit five more bombs and sank seven more free throws with a 11-22 effort at the stripe costing Towson the win. John Davis paced the offense with 16 points and ten rebounds on 6-12 from the floor with Mike Morsell next in line with 14 points. Byron Hawkins and Walter Foster added ten and eight points with Foster totaling 13 boards.

I have to admit that I almost wrote off the Drexel Dragons early on with good reason because they could not score to save their life and the defense couldn't save them. Fast forward to now and points are still a precious commodty but the D is making things work well. The Dragons have won five in a row and six of seven overall to up their conference record to 7-5. Charleston got a good look at that D in a 59-45 defeat Saturday with an 18 point first half setting the tone behind 29% shooting. The Dragons connected at almost 49% including 9-15 from distance which was decisive. Tavon Allen led all scorers with 18 points and five helpers on 6-10 from the field with leading scored Damion Lee tossed 12 points on 3-12. Rodney Williams added ten points and five blocks while Rashann London scored nine.
The Tigers are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 road games and 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games overall. Towson are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 vs. Colonial Athletic Association and 7-2 ATS in their last 9 games vs. a team with a winning % below .400. The Dragons are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games following a S.U. win and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games vs. a team with a losing S.U. record. Drexel are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games following a ATS win and 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The numbers say the line is right on which makes melean to the points but instead I'll go with the hot team in what might an ugly one...
