    NEWARK, Del. (AP) -- Frank Elegar had 19 points on 9-of-11 shooting and nine rebounds to lead Drexel past Delaware 69-61 on Saturday.

    Chaz Crawford added 11 points and 11 rebounds for the Dragons (14-4, 6-2 Colonial Athletic Association), who have won seven of eight.

    Herb Courtney and Sam McMahon scored 20 points apiece for the Blue Hens (3-16, 1-7), who fell to 1-7 at home.

    Delaware led through most of the first half, but a 7-0 run in the final 1:36 gave Drexel a 26-24 lead at intermission.

    The Blue Hens took their last lead, 29-28, on a three-point play by McMahon with 17:08 remaining. Crawford responded with a three-point play of his own, and the Dragons extended their lead with a 10-3 run that lasted just over four minutes.

    Delaware tied it at 41 with 9:35 left on two free throws by Courtney. Drexel responded with a jumper by Matt Stevenson and a 3-pointer by Tramayne Hawthorne, who had 10 points.

    Drexel also got 13 points from Dominick Mejia, whose jumper with 2:01 left gave the Dragons a 62-52 advantage. Brian Johnson scored 10 points for the Blue Hens, who got no points from their bench, compared with 18 for the Dragons.
