PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Chris Fouch scored 25 points and Frantz Massenat added 20 as Drexel beat Hofstra 78-67 on Saturday en route to its 14th straight win.

Hofstra cut Drexel’s 32-23 halftime lead to 36-34 but wouldn’t get any closer as Fouch sank three free throws and then hit a 3-pointer on Drexel’s next possession to give the Dragons (21-5, 13-2 Colonial Athletic Association) a 42-34 lead.
Drexel pushed their lead to 61-42 behind a Massenat layup with 9:37 left to play.
