Drexel Dragons vs UNC Wilmington Seahawks 2/27/2020
Drexel Dragons are in dire need of a win to check their losing spell. Currently at 8th spot in the CAA, a win over the Seahawks could help them get back on track. To do that, Drexel needs solid games from Camren Wynter and James Butler. Both led Drexel in their loss to the Huskies but may need help from their teammates. They are averaging only 69.4 points per contest. Work also needs to be done on defense. The Dragons are allowing opponents 70.9 points, something they cannot allow against UNC Wilmington.
Players to watch: C. Wynter G (29 GP 36 MIN 16.1 PTS 3.9 REB 5.3 AST 1.6 STL 0.1 BLK 3.6 TO 45.1 FG% 69.7 FT% 39 3PT%), J.

UNC Wilmington Seahawks
With only four wins to show this season, the Seahawks will try to make it back-to-back. The Seahawks close their regular season on Saturday against Delaware and a win could give them momentum.

The Dragons may be slight favorites but a good performance from several Seahawks could tilt the outcome in their favor.
