The Drexel Dragons pulled away in the second half of Saturday's CAA Men's Basketball Tournament game against the UNC-Wilmington Seahawks, leading by as many as 18 points before settling on a 59-47 final score. Chris Fouch scored 12 points in the first half, and still led the the Dragons in scoring despite a quiet second half with 14 points total.
The Dragons weren't necessarily more effective in the second half. The Seahawks went cold, dropping their shooting percentage to 34.7 percent after shooting 43.5 percent in the first half. Donte Morales had a nice outing, going 4-for-7 from the field for 13 points in addition to nine rebounds. Guards Tanner Milson and Adam Smith were a combined 7-for-21, however, with Smith going just 1-for-4 from beyond the 3-point arc.
Frantz Massenat scored seven of his 11 points, and Damion Lee scored eight of 10 in the second half to pace the Dragons' surge. Drexel also did a much better job on the boards in the second half, outrebounding the Seahawks 21-13 after intermission. Drexel will play the winner of Saturday's 2:30 p.m. ET game between Old Dominion at Delaware in the third round of the CAA Tournament
