Drexel Defeats Auburn in WNIT Elite 8

The Drexel women’s basketball team has set records all season with its defense, and on Saturday night in the WNIT quarterfinals, the Dragons may have played their best defensive game of the season. Drexel went to Auburn and defeated the Tigers, 56-43, earning a trip to the WNIT semifinals.  Drexel did not trail during the final 34:44 of the game.

 

The Dragons held Auburn to just 27.4 percent shooting for the night while Hollie Mershon led all scorers with 19 points, moving her past Barbara Yost and into fifth place all-time on the Drexel scoring chart with 1,559 in her career.  She added seven assists and 13 rebounds for her fourth double-double of the season. Fiona Flanagan contributed 13 points, including a big three-pointer with 2:35 to play that ended any hope of an Auburn comeback after the Tigers had cut the Dragons’ lead to 12.  Taylor Wootton added 12 points in the win.
