PHILADELPHIA -- Marcus Thornton scored 26 points, including a 3-pointer at the buzzer, to lead William & Mary to a 68-66 victory over Drexel Saturday.
Down by nine at the break, the Tribe (11-7, 3-2 Colonial Athletic Association) scored 10 unanswered points early in the second period to take a one-point lead, 39-38. After a Drexel surge that had the Dragons up by nine at 13:07, the Tribe edged ahead again to lead 65-64 for the final minute of play.
With 10 seconds left on the clock, Drexel's Chris Fouch hit a jumper to put the Dragons up by one but Thornton answered for the Tribe with a 3 at the buzzer to give William & Mary the win.
Fouch scored a career-high 31 points for the Dragons (10-9, 2-4).
Former Kentucky guard Ed Davender, the only Wildcat with at least 1,500 points and 400 assists, has died. He was 49.
Guard Naz Mitrou-Long, whose 2015-16 season ended in December due to hip problems, has been granted a hardship waiver for the coming season, Iowa State said.
As the Sooners look to life without superstar Buddy Hield and his sidekicks, it's clear their unseasoned players will need to grow up fast.
