CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) - Damion Lee scored 24 of his 28 points in the second half as Drexel overcame a 14-point deficit to defeat Cornell 61-59 at the Charleston Classic on Sunday.

Lee and the Dragons (1-4) shot just 18.2 percent in the opening half and trailed 36-22 with 17 minutes to go. But Drexel followed with 19-5 run the next 9 minutes to tie the game. After the Big Red rebuilt its lead to 49-43, the Dragons answered with a 14-3 run to take the lead for good.

Cornell (2-4) drew within 60-59 on Shonn Miller’s 3-pointer with 1.6 seconds left, but Drexel forward Mohamed Bah made a foul shot and purposely missed the second to run out the clock.

Miller had 13 points to lead the Big Red, which ended 0-3 in the eight-team tournament.

Lee was Drexel’s only double-figure scorer. He also added seven rebounds and three assists.
