    RICHMOND, Va. (AP) -- Sam McMahon's only field goal of the game, a baseline shot from just within the 3-point mark, lifted Delaware past Drexel 52-49 in a first-round game of the Colonial Athletic Association tournament on Friday.

    The Blue Hens (9-20) advanced to play top-seeded N.C.-Wilmington in Saturday's first quarterfinals game. With their eighth loss in the last 11 games, the Dragons finished 15-16.

    There were five ties and eight lead changes in the second half, and the biggest lead for either team was four points. Following McMahon's basket, Frank Elegar missed a short jumper for the Dragons. Henry Olawoye's free throw then gave Delaware a 52-49 lead. Scott Rodgers missed a 3-pointer and Bashir Mason could not get off a shot at the buzzer for the Dragons.

    The teams combined for 43 turnovers. Drexel shot just 28.8 percent for the game and missed 23-of-31 second-half attempts.

    Rulon Washington and Harding Nana each had 16 points for the Blue Hens. Washington was 4-for-4 on 3-point attempts. Elegar led the Dragons with 11 points and Mason added 10.
