PHILADELPHIA (AP) Rodney Williams scored 15 points on 6-of-10 shooting and Drexel pulled away to defeat archrival Delaware 76-60 on Saturday.

Austin Williams added with 14 points, Miles Overton had 13, and Sammy Mojica finished one point shy of a triple-double with nine points, 15 rebounds, and 10 assists for the Dragons (7-11, 1-4 Colonial Athletic Association).

Anthony Mosely led all scorers with 18 points for Delaware (7-12, 0-6), which shot only 34 percent overall and 19 percent from 3-point range.
