NIAGARA FALLS, N.Y. (CBS) — The Drexel Dragons are on the road tonight, visiting Niagara University in a non-conference matchup.

Drexel will be looking for a second straight win.  Last time out they held off Princeton, at the DAC, 64-60 (see game story).

In that game, Drexel junior guard Chris Fouch poured in a game-high 23 points — by far his best performance of the season — as he continue to round into form after off-season knee surgery that cost him the first four games of the season.

Drexel head coach Bruiser Flint was happy to see Fouch fill it up.

“I keep telling everybody, he’s not one of our problems.  I think actually he’s going to be okay.  Probably played a lot better than I thought he would play at this time, but he told me he felt good during the game.  And it was good to be home and he knocked down some shots for us,” Flint told KYW Newsradio.

After that Princeton win, the Dragons sit at 3-4 as they visit the 4-6 Purple Eagles.

What does Drexel need to do to pick up a win?

“They play a lot of zone and they pressure a little bit,” Flint says of Niagara, “so we’ve got to handle the ball and be a little patient.  We have to get our big guys going, like I’ve been saying.  I thought they played a little bit better against Princeton.”

These two teams played last season, Drexel hammering Niagara, 84-39, at the DAC.

Tipoff tonight at Niagara is set for 7:00pm.
