Drexel Comeback Falls Short, 68-66. The Drexel Lady Dragons visited the Bob Carpenter Center on the Campus of Delaware University to challenge the Delaware Fightin’ Blue Hens.
Drexel (9-5) looked to continue a few streaks. Riding a three game win streak and getting the best of Delaware 11 straight times.
As they say, all good things come to an end. Delaware (15-2) used a 41 point first quarter and a 14-0 run between the first and second quarters to build a 17 point advantage. Drexel, led by Hannah Nihill, who put up 13 of Drexel’s first 16 points and a career-high of 32, clawed their way back.
A 12-2 Drexel third-quarter run pushed the score to 47-41 in Delaware’s favor. The Blue Hens were miserable, 1 for 11 from the floor, and notched only 8 points in the third quarter.
Nihill was complimented by Jasmine Valentine who pulled down 9 rebounds and accounted for 6 points. Mariah Leonard also was a standout and hauled in 10 rebounds.
