DAVIDSON, N.C. - Drexel coach Bruiser Flint calls the final four minutes "point guard time," when games can be won or lost on the play of a team's point guard.
That's when Frantz Massenat stepped up for the Dragons, scoring a season-high 25 points Sunday as Drexel won its fourth straight game with a 72-58 victory over Davidson.
Massenat, a 6-foot-4 senior, scored nine points during a closing 13-6 run for the Dragons (7-2), who saw their 14-point lead in the first half whittled down to 59-52 with 2 minutes, 47 seconds remaining.
"That's what a good point guard is supposed to do . . . especially when you've got a lead," Flint said. "[Massenat] is a senior and [has] been our point guard for four years, so it's almost expected that he's going to do these kind of things."
Chris Fouch added 17 points for Drexel, which shot 43.6 percent from the field (24 of 55) - including 6 of 12 on three-pointers - and outrebounded the Wildcats, 47-38.
Brian Sullivan scored 14 points, Tyler Kalinoski 13, and Jordan Barham 11 for Davidson (4-7).
The Dragons held the Wildcats - historically one of the nation's better three-point-shooting teams - to a season-low 3 of 22 on threes (13.6 percent). Overall, Davidson shot 32.8 percent from the field.
The Dragons' biggest lead of the first half came in the closing minute, when Kazembe Abif's three-point play with 58 seconds left put them ahead by 37-23.
But the Wildcats, taking advantage of Drexel's foul problems, cut the Dragons' lead to six points five times in the later stages of the second half.
Then Massenat stepped up.
"Different guys are going to have to step up different nights, depending on how the other team guards us," he said. "This was just my night."
