Meanwhile, Drexel had already won five in a row (a stretch where they outscored their opponents by an average of 19 points), and they went ahead and made it six on Thursday. They managed a 78-74 victory over the Hawks. The victory came about thanks to a strong surge starting at the 9:13 mark of the first half, when Drexel was facing a 26-11 deficit.

Mate Okros and Amari Williams were among the main playmakers for Drexel as the former scored 17 points and the latter dropped a double-double on 21 points and 11 rebounds.
