The Rockets kept chipping away and pulled within eight points at 62-54 with 2:23 left after Larry Bastfield made two straight layups.
Harris hit a jumper to regain a double-digit lead, then Jordan Dressler's layup made it 64-56 with 1:08 on the clock.
The Dragons made 5 of 6 free throws down the stretch, with Samme Givens going 3-for-4.
Drexel had a season low five turnovers.
Jake Barnett scored 17 points and had nine rebounds for the Rockets, who outrebounded Drexel 36-30. Dressler added 10 points.
