FAIRFIELD 69, DREXEL 58
BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (AP) -- Derrick Needham scored in double
figures for the seventh straight game and Fairfield used its
best shooting performance of the season to beat Drexel 69-58
Sunday in a nonconference game.
Needham finished with 20, Desmond Wade 15 and Maurice Barrow and
Colin Nickerson 12 apiece for Fairfield, winners of three
straight games. Only two players shot under 50 percent for the
Stags, who shot 58 percent (25 of 43).
Fairfield (7-5) led 28-24 at intermission but the teams
exchanged leads eight times over the first 6 minutes of the
second half. Wade hit a 3-pointer to help Fairfield take the
lead for good, 39-38, then followed with a layup as the Stags
outscored Drexel 17-4 over the next 7 minutes.
Damian Lee led Drexel (3-7) with 15 points but the Dragons shot
just 38.1 percent (21 of 55) from the field, their second worst
outing of the season.
