Friday December 5th, 2014

Philadelphia is home to some of college basketball's greatest rivalries. Drexel vs. The University of the Sciences is not one of them, but the Division II USciences managed to defeat the Division I Dragons on Thursday night.

USciences came away with a 54-52 victory, led by 27 points from senior forward Garrett Kerr. Kerr and sophomore guard Sho Da-Silva, who had 15 points, were the only players to score in double digits for the Devils. Kerr's three-pointer with two seconds gave USciences the win.

The two schools are located a little more than a mile from each other in the southwestern part of Philadelphia.
