Georgia State vs Drexel

Drexel 68, Georgia St. 46


PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Chris Fouch came off the bench to score 15 points and Drexel avenged the only defeat in its previous 14 games by defeating Georgia State 68-46 Wednesday night.

The Dragons (16-5, 8-2 Colonial Athletic Association) opened the second half with a 14-1 run, holding the Panthers (14-7, 6-4) without a field goal for the first 10:22. By then, Drexel led 51-29 and was well on its way to its eighth straight win since a 58-44 loss to Georgia State in Atlanta on Jan. 2.

Drexel's defense, which ranked sixth nationally against opponents' scoring at 54.8 points per game, limited the Panthers to 33.3 percent shooting (17 of 51), including just 25 percent (7 of 28) after halftime.

Frantz Massenat had 13 points and seven assists for Drexel, and Samme Givens had 12 points and 10 rebounds.

Jihad Ali scored 17 points for Georgia State and Eric Buckner blocked five shots.
