VIDEO: Drexel fends off Hofstra, no buzzer-beater needed this time

The last time that Drexel and Hostra played, it took a Frantz Massenet prayer to give the Dragons the win.

This time around, it was a bit different, but the result was the same.

Massenet still had a big game, dropping in 16 points as Drexel held off the Pride 63-56 at home. Damion Lee scored a team-high 17 for the Dragons, while Hofstra was led on the road by Steve Mejia’s game-high 22.

Neither team shot particularly well, with the Dragons actually hitting less (38 percent) than the Pride (39 percent) in terms of percentage.

Here’s a few highlights from the game on the NBC Sports Network.
