Presbyterian takes out The Citadel 95-79 behind Drew

CLINTON, S.C. (AP) Ed Drew scored 26 points and had six rebounds as Presbyterian beat The Citadel 95-79 Saturday night.

Reggie Dillard had 16 points and Markus Terry added 13 for Presbyterian (3-1). Drew made 10 of 13 attempts as the Blue Hose shot nearly 60 percent from the field.

The Citadel (2-2) was led by Brian White, who scored 18 points, while Derrick Henry and P.J. Boutte added 14.

Presbyterian owned a 50-42 lead at the half after having leads of 20-8, 24-13 and 50-37. White hit a 3-pointer to cut the deficit to eight points with 35 seconds left before half.

Henry's layup with 13:05 remaining brought the Bulldogs within three at 61-58, but a Drew layup and back-to-back 3s from Dillard and Darius Moore extended the margin to 69-58 and The Citadel would come no closer.
