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.
