Drexel Breathes Fire on Elon, 63-41

The Drexel Dragons (11-8) welcomed the Elon Phoenix (6-14) to the Daskalakis Athletic Center on the campus of Drexel University on a windy Thursday evening.

In a game in which Drexel trailed 21-20 at the half, the Dragons awoke and posted more second-half points than the Phoenix would amass for the entire game.

The Dragons ran away with the game with an unworldly 43-20 second half to pick up the 22 point differential.

Elon received a 12 point game from Hunter McIntosh who was aided by Marcus Sheffield who threw in ten points.

Drexel was the recipient of double-doubles from James Butler who picked up 15 rebounds to go with his 15 points and, Zach Walton adding a 16 point 11 board contest.

The Dragons were led by Camryn Winter who nailed 27 points to cement the contest.
