PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – The Drexel Dragons have really opened some eyes here in the early going of the season.
The Dragons are 4-2 and coming off a third-place showing in the NIT Season Tip-Off. They earned that third place finish with a thrilling, triple-overtime win over Alabama on Friday at Madison Square Garden. That win came two days after they nearly shocked #4 Arizona in New York, racing out to a 19-point lead, before eventually losing by four.
Now the Dragons are getting ready to finally play a game at the DAC. On Wednesday night they will host Cleveland State.
“We’ve played well to start the season,” Flint tells KYW Newsradio. “Hopefully, we can continue it. I think we’ve been in some tough places, we haven’t had a home game yet, coming out with a 4-2 record. We’ve been in some really tough, close games, against some really good competition. So hopefully that bodes well for us the rest of the season.”
