ELON, N.C. (AP) — Dainan Swoope scored 21 points and Tyler Seibring scored 19 points and gathered 12 rebounds and Elon downed Drexel 90-75 on Saturday in a Colonial Athletic Association opener for both teams.

Brian Dawkins and Steven Santa Ana each scored 13 points and Dmitri Thompson and Karolis Kundrotas each scored 11 for Elon (9-5), which shot 14 of 30 (47 percent) from 3-point range.

The Phoenix made six of their first seven shots and built a 15-8 lead with 3s coming from Santa Ana, Seibring and Swoope. Santa Ana later connected on a pair of 3s, Seibring had a 3 and a pair of free throws and Swoope made a pair of free throws and the lead was 28-10 with 12:47 left in the first half.

Drexel only managed to bring down the double-digit deficit it faced most of the game to 76-67 when Austin Williams made one of two free throws with 3:55 left before Seibring responded with a quick 3.

Kurk Lee led Drexel (6-8) with 18 points and Williams tied a career-high with 14 rebounds.
