CAA college basketball action continues with the Drexel Dragons hosting the James Madison Dukes.

The Drexel Dragons look to build on the momentum of a 72-66 win against Towson as a four point home favorite on Thursday.

Drexel was up one point at the intermission and pulled away late behind a 40.7%-32.4% shooting end to negate nine more Towson shots.

Alihan Demir helped the Dragons avoid the upset with 22 points and 16 rebounds followed by Jarvis Doles with 16 points.

Drexel received ten points and five pulls from Troy Harper while James Butler and Trevor John tossed in eight points each and combined for nine rebounds.

The James Madison Dukes were denied a third straight win in a 76-69 loss to Delaware as a four point road dog on Thursday night.

James Madison dug themselves a 12 point half time hole and a late rally ran out of steam with Delaware holding a 56%-43.3% shooting edge.

Stuckey Mosely kept the Dukes in contention with 22 points followed by Matt Lewis with 17 points, three yanks and four helpers.

Deshon Parker gave JMU eleven points, three assists and three pulls while Darius Banks added eleven points, six rebounds and four assists.

JMU Dukes are 11-5 ATS in their last 16 games following a straight up loss and JMU Dukes are 1-6 ATS in their last 7 road games. Drexel Dragons are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games following a straight up win and Drexel 

Dragons are 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games following a ATS win. JMU Dukes are 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Drexel and JMU Dukes are 6-2 ATS in the last 8 meetings.

It looks like both teams are tough to predict so the points with JMU for a pick…

Pick:
James Madison +4

I have been a sports fan since I was old enough to pick up a ball and have always been drawn to competition. I don't participate in sporting events any longer but I do like to provide my opinion on games and writing gives me that outlet. I won't always be right but I always put 100% in to every article I do whether it's the World Series or an 0-10 college football team. Mitch shares that same passion and allows me to express myself in my own way.
