Alaska Anchorage (1-1) scored the first 10 points of the game as Wiggs made a pair of three-pointers. Drexel took a brief lead with 3:47 left in the half on Mojica's three-pointer, but Spencer Svejcar's trey put Anchorage up, 40-36, at intermission.

London's layup with 1:04 to go made it a four-point game again, but Drexel missed consecutive threes down the stretch and Anchorage held on.
