PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – The Drexel Dragons will play their next four games in the cozy confines of the DAC, starting with Thursday night’s CAA match-up with Old Dominion.
The Dragons are 9-13 (5-5 in the CAA) and they are coming off a 59-52 loss at Northeastern on Saturday.
A problem as of late for the Dragons has been slow starts. In their last three games they have trailed 25-9 (Delaware), 33-13 (George Mason) and 10-0 (Northeastern).
“We’ve just got to come more ready to play,” Drexel head coach Bruiser Flint tells KYW Newsradio. “I thought we turned the ball over a little bit in both games (George Mason and Northeastern) early, which gave them some easy baskets. When we settled down from turning the ball over, we sort of creeped ourselves back into both games last week.”
Drexel actually rallied to win the George Mason game, and only lost to Delaware by two.
