The Tribe’s cold shooting reappeared today in a 62-49 loss at Drexel.
The College (6-13, 1-8 CAA) cut its deficit to as few as three points in the second half, but a bevy of missed layups and scoring opportunities prevented the Tribe from closing down the gap.
The College held the Dragons to just three points in the first 6:30 of the game, but could only establish a five-point lead at 8-3.
Drexel’s offense woke up late in the first half when the Dragons used a 14-1 run to erase a one-point deficit and build an eleven-point lead.
Junior guard David Schneider led the team with 17 points on seven of 14 shooting, including knocking down three of five from beyond the arc. Freshman forward Quinn McDowell added 10 points.
Junior forward Danny Sumner came off the bench, scoring three points in 18 minutes of action.
