Atlanta, GA (Sports Network) - Frantz Massenat matched a career-high with 25 points to lead the Drexel Dragons to a 77-60 victory over the Georgia State Panthers in a Colonial Athletic Association matchup at GSU Sports Arena.
Massenat, who is coming off a season-low five points in a loss to St. Joseph's earlier this week, shot 9-of-15 from the floor and was perfect from the free throw line, making all six attempts.

R.J. Hunter netted 23 points for Georgia State (5-9, 0-1), which has dropped its last five games. Devonta White added 11 points, while Cameron Solomon finished with 12.
Drexel went into the locker rooms leading 37-33 after a relatively even first half in which the Dragons shot 42.3 percent from the floor while the Panthers shot 42.9 percent.
