The Dragons have battled all season long, finishing 8-8 in the CAA, despite significant injuries.
“I feel pretty good,” Drexel head coach Bruiser Flint tells KYW Newsradio. “I feel like we’ve handled our adversity pretty well. We could’ve handled it a little better, we had some games where I thought we let it get away from us a little bit. But with all the things that went on, losing two starters (Damion Lee and Kaz Abif) and having to play a lot of freshmen when you didn’t really think you were going to, I thought our guys handled it pretty well. I feel good about us going in (to the tournament). I wouldn’t say we are playing at the top level right now, but I think we’re playing good enough that (now that) we’re into the tournament, we could definitely win it.”
