Stewart scores 21, Rider rallies past Drexel 75-66

PHILADELPHIA (AP) Daniel Stewart scored 21 points to lead Rider to a 75-66 come-from-behind nonconference victory over Drexel on Saturday.

The Broncs (5-4) trailed by nine points, 46-37, in the second half before running off 14 in a row to lead 51-46 with 8:57 remaining.

The Dragons (2-5) never led again, but they tied the game 60-60 with 4:01 to play on two free throws by Damion Lee, who finished with 28 points and eight rebounds. A jumper by Nurideen Lindsey gave Rider the lead for good, 62-60, at the 2:38 mark and started an 11-2 run.

Rider, which trailed 31-30 at halftime, shot 64 percent (16 of 25) in the second half to Drexel's 37.9 percent (11 of 29).

Jonathon Thompson added 14 points and four steals for the Bronc, Lindsey scored 12 and Anthony Myles had seven points and eight rebounds.

Trea Turner's World Series steal earns free tacos for all

The World Series has it all. The thrill of victory, the agony of defeat, and the potential to earn all of America free tacos.

In recent years, Taco Bell and Major League Baseball have partnered up for the 'Steal a base, Steal a taco' movement in the World Series. The name tells you everything you need to know. If any player in the Fall Classic swipes a bag, you can head to Taco Bell at a certain time and collect a free, crunchy treat.

For the 2019 World Series between the Washington Nationals and Houston Astros, Trea Turner wasted no time getting the job done.

With him stealing second in the first inning of Game 1, America can now pick up a free taco at participating locations from 2-6 p.m. on Wednesday, October 30. 

It isn't too shocking that Turner was the one to swipe the bag. The speedy shortstop ranked fifth in the MLB with 35 steals in 2019. However, it was a surprise that it came so early, as the Nationals had not attempted a stolen base all postseason.

But with the lights on him and free tacos on the line, Turner delivered. On Taco Tuesday, no less. October baseball really is magical.
