Drexel has had a very choppy campaign so far this year; the Dragons have only been able to win consecutive games once. Drexel is 3-2 in their last five games. The losses in that time have come versus Hofstra and College of Charleston. 

Matched up against Charleston on Monday, the Dragons were down 26-37 by halftime. Drexel surged on a 49-42 run in the second but it wasn’t enough in a 79-75 loss. Coletrane Washington was the top scorer on 21 points and three boards. 

Over on the William & Mary side, they’ve had some major struggles this season to say the least. The Tribe are currently riding a five-game losing streak to Charleston, UNC Wilmington, Towson, James Madison and UNC Wilmington again. 

In the Monday game versus UNC Wilmington, William & Mary stormed back from a four-point halftime deficit to force overtime but ended up losing 80-73 after the extra period. Tops in scoring were Brandon Carroll and Ben Wright, each with 13 points. 

The Tribe are 7-16-1 ATS in their last 24 at home and 10-4 ATS in their last 14 overall. The under is 5-1 in William & Mary’s last six Thursday games. 

Meanwhile, the Dragons are 6-1 ATS in their last seven Thursday games and 5-1 ATS in the last six after a straight-up loss. The over is 21-9 in Drexel’s last 30 road games. 

PICK: I’m going to take a stab on William & Mary here. The Tribe’s recent losing streak is pretty ugly, but they’ve been competitive in a few of those outings. William & Mary managed a nice 83-75 road win the last time these teams met up back on January 22. The Tribe’s play since then hasn’t been much to write home about, but the familiar atmosphere may give William & Mary a lift during this rematch. I think the Tribe can eke out a cover in an otherwise unremarkable game. 

Andrew's Free Pick:
William & Mary Tribe +7
