Drexel’s headed to NCAAs for the first time in 25 years

HARRISONBURG, Va. (AP) — Mate Okros scored 14 points with four 3-pointers and sixth-seeded Drexel is headed to the NCAA Tournament for the first time in 25 years after defeating eighth-seeded Elon 63-56 in the championship game of the Colonial Athletic Association tournament. The Dragons, whose last NCAA appearance came in 1996 as a member of the America East Conference, were 10 of 17 from 3-point range and went 29 of 51 in their three wins. Hunter McIntosh scored 19 points for Elon in a bid to be the first team to win four straight in the CAA tourney. The Phoenix have never been to the Division I Big Dance.
