PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – If you read a recap of a Drexel game this season, you’ll probably learn a lot about the Dragons talented backcourt. Guards Frantz Massenat, Chris Fouch and Tavon Allen provide most of the scoring and grab most of the headlines.
However, another key to this team’s success quietly patrols the low post – senior forward Dartaye Ruffin.
“I think I’m playing all right,” Ruffin told KYW Newsradio after Sunday’s win over St. Francis (PA). “I do what’s asked of me and then when there’s times where they need me to make a play, I’m always there to make a play for the guys. I’m just happy, honestly. I’m just going to do whatever it takes to win.”
And most nights that involves the 6’8″ Ruffin hitting the glass and defending.
“I get the opportunity to guard the best big man on the floor every night,” Ruffin says. “I look at it as a goal to keep him under his average, or slow him down just enough so we can get a W.”
