NEWARK, Del. (AP) Nukiya Mayo scored 20 points, Kionna Jeter added 10 and each drained a clutch jump shot in the final minute as Towson rallied late to defeat Drexel 53-49 Saturday in the Colonial Athletic Association championship game, earning the program's first berth in the NCAA Tournament.
Bailey Greenberg, the CAA player of the year, led the Drexel with 15 points, and a strong spin move down the lane for a bucket by Aubree Brown had the Dragons ahead 46-43 late. Four turnovers in the last 1:45 plagued Drexel (24-8), which has lost in the last four CAA title games.
Qierra Murray took a stolen pass to the hoop, bringing the Tigers (20-12) to 46-45, Mayo knocked down a quick turnaround jumper and Towson led for the first time in the final quarter.
