Recap: Drexel vs. Georgia State

Philadelphia, PA (Sports Network) - Damion Lee knocked down 4-of-9 3-pointers en route to a game-high 20 points, and the Drexel Dragons took down the Georgia State Panthers, 68-57, in Colonial Athletic Association play at the Daskalakis Center.

Frantz Massenat tallied 15 points and eight assists for the Dragons (8-11, 4-3 CAA), winners of three straight. Derrick Thomas chipped in with 14 points off the bench.

Manny Atkins led the way with 15 points and 10 rebounds for the Panthers (10-12, 5-4), who saw their four-game winning streak come to a halt. Devonta White added 14 points and Rashaad Richardson finished with 12 in the loss.
