  •  

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.

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.
