NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Kellen Thornton scored 20 points and Tennessee State used a 7-0 run late in the second half to take a 76-66 victory from Drexel on Tuesday night in a nonconference contest.

Cyphers then hit a 3 to set a seven-point advantage with just under 3 minutes left, and Drexel (2-6) never got closer than five again.
