PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Drexel has dropped two of its last three games as they get ready to visit Southern Mississippi on Friday night.
You don’t have to do much more than take a quick look at the boxscore to see why it has been a struggle for the Dragons as of late.
“We’re in the 50’s (points) the last couple of games,” Drexel head coach Bruiser Flint tells KYW Newsradio. “We’ve got to play better offensively.”
Drexel (8-4) is averaging just 55.3 points over its last three games, shooting just 39.5% from the field, and 3-34 (8.8%) from three, in the process.
“I didn’t think we took bad shots in those games either,” Flint says. “But at times, when you start missing shots you become less aggressive. So I’m just trying to tell the guys, keep shooting the shots that we have been. They’re good. They’ll start falling. But we’ve got to get in the gym a little bit too, put a little extra time into our shooting.”
