WILLIAMSBURG, Va. (AP) - Daniel Dixon made 12 of 16 shots, including all five of his 3-pointers, and scored 23 of his 32 points after halftimes and Omar Prewitt added 24 points as William & Mary beat Drexel 108-85 on Monday night.

Prewitt hit 9 of 13 from the field, including a career-high tying six 3s, grabbed seven rebounds and had five assists.

Sammy Mojica’s layup gave Drexel (8-15, 2-8 Colonial Athletic Association) a 46-45 lead early in the second half, but Dixon scored eight - including two 3-pointers - during an 11-2 run that made it 56-48 with 17:14 to play.
