Drury has all but wrapped up its 10th consecutive national championship with the huge lead they'll take in against second-place Florida Southern on Saturday.
And they took a big step toward making it a DU sweep - which would make it five times in the last six years, with only Wayne State's single-point victory against the women in 2012 providing the blemish - by coming fast out of the gates on Friday.
It was a relatively quiet night for the DU men, who continued to beat the field with their depth. Highlight races included a sixth from freshman Fahad Alkhaldi in the 500 free, a 2-3 finish from Jordi Montseny and Sean Feher in the 100 back, a sixth from Kacper Pelczynski in the 100 breast, and a fourth from Stanislav Kuzmin in the 200 fly before the men's 800 relay team finished fifth.
