PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – The regular season is in the books for the Drexel Dragons. Of course, it didn’t go according to plan for the preseason pick to win the CAA, as Drexel is just 13-17. But this weekend the Dragons can erase all that disappointment with three straight wins as they open play in the CAA Tournament in Richmond, Virginia.
“We sort of pushed that from the beginning,” Drexel head coach Bruiser Flint tells KYW Newsradio. “We just haven’t had the season that we thought we were going to have. When we first started out, we said, ‘Hey guys, after last year (getting denied an NCAA Tourney berth) y’all know what it’s all about. It’s about getting yourself into the (NCAA) tournament and getting yourself into the tournament by winning three games in the conference tournament.’ So that’s what it has come down to.”
