Brit duo Mate Okros and Amari Williams punched their ticket to the Big Dance on Tuesday night, helping Drexel to a 63-56 win over Elon to claim the CAA Men’s Basketball Championship.
The Dragons won the CAA for the first time and will return to the NCAA Tournament for the first time in 25 years.
Okros played a starring role, going 4-of-5 from 3-point range to score a team-high 14 points off the bench, as Drexel became the first #6 seed to ever win the CAA title.
