Old Dominion led by as many as 12 points in the first half and held a 32-24 lead at the break. Drexel opened the second half with a 29-5 run to grab its biggest lead of the game at 53-37 after a free throw by Daryl McCoy with 6:09 to play.
Sammy Givens and Gerald Colds each added 12 points for the Dragons (11-4, 3-2 Colonial Athletic Association). McCoy had his second straight double-double with 11 points and 16 rebounds.
