WILLIAMSBURG, Va. (AP) — Marcus Thornton scored 18 points with three assists as William & Mary held on to a 16-point halftime lead to prevail over Drexel 85-73 on Wednesday night.

Brandon Britt and Omar Prewitt each scored 15 points for the Tribe (9-5, 1-0 Colonial Athletic Association). Kyle Gaillard added 14 points and grabbed five rebounds.
