PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Just seven games remain in the regular season for the Drexel Dragons, the first of which will be Saturday at the DAC as the Dukes of James Madison come to town.
Drexel got off to a hot start this season, but then they were hit with a ton of injuries that really challenged the roster mid-season. Now the Dragons have gotten healthier over the last couple of weeks and last time out, on Monday, they beat UNC-Wilmington, 61-50. The 50 points representing the fewest they have allowed in a game this season.
“Hopefully we’re rounding into shape,” Drexel head coach Bruiser Flint tells KYW Newsradio. “Getting some guys back. (Sophomore guard/forward) Tavon (Allen) moved around a lot better than he has in the previous two games (recovering from an ankle injury) and he got some points for us (17). (Junior forward) Kazembe (Abif, who had a knee issue), those guys are starting to move around a lot better, (senior forward) Dartaye (Ruffin, recovering from a calf injury), hopefully we’re getting healthy enough that we can hopefully make a run towards the end of the year.”
