Northeastern rallies to top Drexel 61-59

PHILADELPHIA (AP) David Walker scored 20 points and Northeastern rallied, and then edged upset-minded Drexel 61-59 on Saturday.

Drexel led by 11 at 49-38 on Rashann London's 3-pointer with 9:19 left, but then went 6:43 without scoring as Northeastern roared back with a 15-point run. London's 3 with 1:21 to go drew Drexel to within one, and then Terrell Allen made a pair from the line to put Drexel up one with 41 seconds left.

Northeastern responded with a Zach Stahl layup to lead 60-59 with 29 seconds to go. Tavon Allen and London both missed jumpers on the next possession and the Huskies held on.

Stahl finished with 12 points, eight rebounds and six assists for Northeastern (17-14, 9-9 Colonial).

Drexel (5-24, 3-15 Colonial) was led by Tavon Allen with 27 points. London ended with 11 points and Kazembe Abif added 10. The Dragons went just 2 of 4 from the foul line.
