January 31, 1991|By Special to The Sun

PHILADELPHIA -- Dan Leahy's three-point goal and two free throws helped Drexel University (7-13, 3-3) on an 11-2 run late in the second half, and the Dragons went on to a 75-63 East Coast Conference victory over the University of Maryland Baltimore County (2-17, 1-5) at Drexel's Physical Education Center last night.

The win was No. 200 in the 14-year career of Eddie Burke (200-186), all at Drexel, and the team's third in a row.

UMBC led at the half for only the second time this season, 26-23, and went up, 33-25, before the Dragons rallied to tie at 36 after less than four minutes of the second half. The Drexel rally, which broke a tie at 56 with 5 minutes, 53 seconds to go, put the game out of reach within the next three minutes.
