“We got down, the game was pretty much won in the first half,” Drexel head coach Bruiser Flint tells KYW Newsradio. “We got it down close [in the second half], we just couldn’t make a basket, or a play to sort of get us over the hump and really put some pressure on them in the second half.”
8-6 Drexel played on Wednesday night without junior forward Kazembe Abif, he is dealing with a knee injury. Then during the game, senior forward Dartaye Ruffin went down with a calf injury.
“Hopefully we get Kaz back in the next week or so,” Flint says. “Dartaye, he just went for the MRI [on Thursday], so we’re not sure what’s going on with him yet.”
