    PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- Laimis Kisielius scored 20 points and Nathan Mann added 18 as William & Mary raced to a five-point lead in overtime and held on to beat Drexel 73-72 on Wednesday night.

    Danny Sumner scored 14 points for William & Mary (10-8, 6-2 Colonial Athletic), which hit 14 3-pointers, including two in overtime.

    Frank Elegar had 24 points and 15 rebounds, Scott Rodgers scored 16 points and Randy Oveneke 11 for Drexel (9-11, 2-6).

    The teams were evenly matched throughout, finishing the first half tied at 33 and regulation deadlocked at 65-all after Rodgers hit a jumper with 20 seconds left.

    In the overtime, William & Mary raced to a five-point lead before Drexel rallied. Rodgers hit a pair of free throws to pull the Dragons within 71-68, and Tramayne Hawthorne hit a pair of free throws to make it 71-70.

    Sumner dropped in a layup to put William & Mary ahead by three with 1:14 remaining, before Rodgers scored to cut Drexel's deficit to 73-72. But Hawthorne's 3-point try with four seconds left missed the mark.
