Recap: Hofstra vs. Drexel

Hempstead, NY (SportsNetwork.com) - Frantz Massenat scored a game-high 32 points for the Drexel Dragons, who edged out the Hofstra Pride, 77-74, in a Colonial Athletic Association matchup at the Mack Sports Complex.

Massenat also contributed nine assists for the Dragons (11-9, 3-4 CAA), who bounced back after losing two straight games. Chris Fouch netted 19 points to help the offense.

Zeke Upshaw notched 27 points to lead the Pride (7-15, 3-4), who dropped their third straight. Jamall Robinson recorded a double-double with 15 points and 10 rebounds. Dion Nesmith and Moussa Kone added 13 and 10 points, respectively.

Hofstra turned things around in the second half, however, making an even 50 percent of its field goal tries, to Drexel's 40.7 percent. The Pride clung to a five-point lead with 9:01 left, but just three minutes later, a Massenat 3- pointer gave the Dragons back the lead.
