Posted: March 04, 2012

Drexel will be facing a formidable task when the Dragons meet two-time defending Colonial Athletic Association Tournament champion Old Dominion in Sunday's 2 p.m. semifinal at the Richmond Coliseum in Virginia.

Fourth-seeded ODU (20-12) advanced with an 88-74 quarterfinal win over fifth-seeded Delaware, which entered the tournament with a nine-game winning streak.

Leading, 47-42, at halftime, ODU began the second half on a 13-4 run to take control.

Kent Bazemore had 24 points to lead the Monarchs. Sophomore Devon Saddler had 24 points for Delaware.

Noteworthy

Rob Brandenberg scored 16 of his 19 points in the second half to lead Virginia Commonwealth (26-6) past Northeastern (14-17), 75-65, in a CAA quarterfinal in Richmond. The Rams will play George Mason (24-8), a 61-59 winner over Georgia State (21-11) on Bryon Allen's reverse layup with 3.4 seconds left.
