Drexel senior guard Chris Fouch was in tears after he fouled out of the fourth-seeded Dragons' Colonial Athletic Association tournament quarterfinal matchup with Northeastern at Baltimore Arena.
He carried Drexel’s offense with 30 points, but it wasn’t enough.
Fifth-seeded Northeastern used a dominant first half shooting performance to defeat Drexel, 90-81.
Northeastern will play top-seeded Delaware Sunday at 2:30 p.m. for a spot in Monday’s CAA championship game. It will be the Huskies' fourth CAA semifinal appearance in the last five years.
“It’s tough that you know you don’t get another shot at it,” a dejected Fouch said after his final game as a Dragon. “You just have to know that as a person, you went out there and gave it your all.”
Forward Scott Eatherton scored 23 points and brought down 15 rebounds to lead the Huskies.
After an early 15-2 Northeastern run to make the score 20-13 in favor of the Huskies with just over eight minutes to play in the first half, Drexel coach Bruiser Flint called a timeout and began tearing into his starters, who stood in a circle around him.
