PHILADELPHIA (AP)—Jamie Harris scored 22 points to lead Drexel to its first win, beating still-winless Penn 58-49 on Tuesday night.
Harris finished 8-for-14 from the field for Drexel, and was the only player with more than three shots to shoot better than 50 percent. Gerald Colds and Evan Neisler each added 10 points for the Dragons (1-3).
