Dragons Breathe Fire on Blue Hens, 61-55

The Delaware Blue Hens (11-5) made a belated holiday trip to University City to take on the Drexel Dragons (9-7) in a DI basketball matchup.

Drexel rode the back of Camryn Wynter, who put up 18 points and an 8 for 13 from the field to stake the Drexel upset.

After Delaware got the score even at 48-48, Wynter took over by nailing a pretty jumper that kicked the defenses in.

Nearly two minutes passed before Wynter drained a three that put Drexel in front, 55-50.

Delaware attempted a comeback but was thwarted by a Matay Juric theft that sealed the deal for Drexel.

The Dragons were recipients of a James Butler double-double with his 10 points, 16 rebound game. It marked the 10 career double-doubles for Butler.

Delaware was held to a season-low 55 points. Drexel moves to 2-1 in the Conference while the Blue Hens drop to 1-2.
