Drury Wins Division II National Title


The Drury Panthers surged back to erase a 12 point halftime deficit capped off by a pair of free throws by Alex Hall in the final minute, defeating the Metro State Roadrunners 74-73 for the title.


Hall led the Drury scoring attack with 21 points as they take their first Division II trophy home to Springfield, Missouri for coach Steve Hessler. Brandon Lockhart also turned in a strong performance for the victors with 14 points, 9 assists and 6 rebounds. Back in 1979, Drury won a title playing at the NAIA level.
