Philadelphia, PA (Sports Network) - Hollie Mershon's layup with 21 seconds remaining proved to be the difference maker as Drexel held on to edge Utah, 46-43, on Saturday to earn the 2013 WNIT title.

Mershon, who finished with 14 points and eight rebounds, scored the critical basket to put the Dragons ahead by one and break a scoreless streak that lasted two-plus minutes as the contest came to a close.

Taylor Wootton scored 16 points and grabbed six boards for Drexel (28-10), which defeated Florida on Wednesday in the semifinals.
