Drexel Beats Cold-Shooting Georgia State 68-57
PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Damion Lee scored 20 points and Drexel held Georgia State without a basket for nearly 14 minutes in a 68-57 Colonial Athletic Association victory Saturday.
Lee hit four 3-pointers, including two in the second half that helped the Dragons (8-11, 4-3) extend their lead to 12 points after the Panthers (10-12, 5-4) had gotten to within three, 43-40, with 9:47 remaining.
Georgia State, which had won four straight, didn’t score a basket for the final 8:35 of the first half and the opening 5:10 of the second.
Frantz Massenat had 15 points and eight assists for Drexel, which defeated Georgia State 77-60 Jan. 2 in Atlanta.
Georgia State’s Manny Atkins had his first double-double, getting 15 points and 10 rebounds.
The Panthers shot just 27.7 percent (13 of 47). They made 25 of their 29 free throws (86.2 percent) but Drexel was even better, making 21 of 22 (95.5 percent).
