Drexel lets a game slip away, 64-69 tribe. William and Mary douse the dragon’s fire. The William and Mary Tribe visited the Daskalakis Center on Sunday afternoon to challenge the Drexel Dragons. A monumental collapse gave the Tribe (4-6) a highly unusual heart-stopping win over the (6-5) Drexel Dragons.
Drexel seemed in control but, with 4:07 remaining the roof fell in on them. Suddenly turning ice-cold, Drexel was outscored 17-3 the rest of the way. As shocking as that event is, it’s more of a shock that the Tribe did not hit one field goal during the deluge.
The Dragons had the lead at the break, 31-26 but, Bill and Mare turned in a blistering second half with an astounding 43 points. How cold was Drexel? They went 2 of their last 9 from the field including a goose egg in their final seven.
Connor Kochera, who had all of 10 free throw tries coming into the contest, stole the show with a blistering 14 of 16 in the final 17 minutes and paced the Tribe with a career-high, 26 points. Luke Loewe added 16 points to assist in the upset. Drexel countered with a 17 point effort from Mate Okros. William and Mary douse the dragon’s fire, 64-69.
