PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Two city schools will be in action on Tuesday night.
Drexel will be home to host Niagara. The Dragons are hoping to put that blowout 93-65 loss at Syracuse from Wednesday night behind them.
Head coach Bruiser Flint wants his team to put that game behind them. “We know we didn’t play well against Syracuse, against a good team, we want to try to get ourselves back on track. So our whole focus has been on let’s get better, let’s do the things we need to do the last couple of days since we’ve been practicing,” said Flint.
Dragons are 8-2 heading into this match-up, and Flint said Niagara will be a challenge. “Their guards are good, they score a lot of balls, play a lot of young kids. They got two Philly kids in Kashief Edwards and Scooter Gillette. Those Philly kids always get up to come back and play at home and those guys are playing pretty well for them this year,” said Flint.
Niagara brings a 3-9 record into this game.
