The Dragons are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 Saturday games and 1-3-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Tribe are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 home games and 13-6 ATS in their last 19 games following a S.U. win. The Dragons are 1-4 ATS in the last 5 meetings.
Drexel is back to playing subpar basketball and William & Mary is looking to lockup an NCAA bid. While the chalk isn't pretty, I like the Tribe to win this game in a blowout.
