Bradley vs Drexel

Drexel 73, Bradley 68

  •  

PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Samme Givens finished with 17 points and 10 boards as Drexel earned its third straight victory with a 73-68 win over Bradley on Saturday.

Givens, who tallied his second double-double of the season, scored all his points in the second half to lead the Dragons (5-4), who held off a late Bradley surge.

Drexel has now won three straight for the first time this season, leading by as many as 17 in the second half before the Braves, fueled by both Walt Lemon Jr. and Jake Eastman, clawed their way back even at 65-all with 2:31 to play.

But Drexel made 5 of 6 free throws in the final 21.8 seconds, after a 1-for-5 performance from the stripe in the first half, to seal it.

Lemon had 18 points to lead the Braves (5-5) and Eastman scored a career-high 17 points.
