    PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- Frank Elegar scored 21 points and Drexel defeated Towson 66-56 Saturday, coach Bruiser Flint's 100th victory with the Dragons.

    Chaz Crawford scored 14 points and Tramayne Hawthorne 10 for Drexel (17-6, 9-4 Colonial Athletic Association), which held Towson without a basket for the final 4:43 and closed out the win with a 9-0 run.

    Flint, in his sixth season at Drexel, ranks fourth in school history in coaching wins. He has 186 career victories in 10-plus seasons as a coach.

    Gary Neal scored 16 of his 23 points in the first half for Towson (6-7, 12-12). Dennard Abraham added 10 points.

    Hawthorne hit a 3-pointer with 12:47 remaining to give Drexel its biggest lead at 51-37. The Tigers countered with a 19-6 run. C.C. Williams' layup with 4:24 left cut Towson's deficit to 57-56. But that was the Tigers' last basket.

    A layup by Crawford with six seconds left in the first half gave Drexel a 34-31 lead at the break.
