The Dragons (10-7) were hot from the start, building a 41-29 halftime edge behind 60.7% shooting from the floor, including 7-of-12 from beyond the arc.

Drexel maintained a double-digit advantage for much of the second half and was up by 11 with 5:10 remaining. However, Charleston rallied behind Jasper, who drained three consecutive treys and then made a layup to trim the deficit to five, 77-72, with 51 seconds left. A triple by Willis pulled the Cougars within 78-75 with seven seconds on the clock, but Matey Juric made a pair of free throws to seal the victory.
