BRIDGEPORT, Conn. - It's never a good thing when a team misses 34 shots.
And that's exactly what Drexel did in a 69-58 nonconference loss to Fairfield Sunday.
The Dragons went 21-for-55 from the field (38.2 percent), their second worst outing of the season, to fall to 3-7.
Damion Less led Drexel with 15 points, but had to take 15 shots to do it, finishing 4-for-15 from the field.
Franz Massenat added 11 points and was held without an assist for the first time this season. Dartaye Ruffin scored 10 points and Daryl McCoy and Tavon Allen had eight each.
Derek Needham led the Stags (7-5), who shot 58 percent in the game, with 20 points.
Desmond Wade added 15 points, while Colin Nickerson and Maurice Barrow each scored 12.
Fairfield led 28-24 at intermission but the teams exchanged leads eight times over the first 6 minutes of the second half.
Wade hit a three-pointer to help Fairfield take the lead for good, 39-38, then followed with a layup as the Stags outscored Drexel 11-0 over the next several minutes en route to their third straight win. Wade scored eight straight points during the run, including a pair of three-pointers, as Fairfield went ahead, 50-38. Drexel went without a field goal for almost eight minutes.
In the first half, Drexel managed to force nine turnovers, but the Stags were 12-for-23 from the floor.
Drexel's next two games are home at the Daskalakis Athletic Center.
