The Dragons man-handled the Phoenix on the boards, out-rebounding Elon 39-24. While they only shot 66% from the charity stripe, Drexel still attempted nearly 40 free throws, while Elon only managed to take 24 free throws themselves. Winning the rebounding and free throw battles go a long way in coming out victorious. While both teams struggled from the 3 point line, Drexel's aggressive offense getting to the basket as often as possible was a major difference maker in this game.
Now at 2-1 on the season, Drexel looks to keep advancing further in the tournament, as they face the winner of the Rutgers and Canisius game tomorrow at 7:30. Stay tuned to our twitter account to see who Drexel ends up playing tomorrow evening. If they win tomorrow night as well, then the Dragons would wind up heading to Madison Square Garden on November 27 to take on the winner of the West division (whom most likely will be Arizona). It will be tough to win the entire tournament, with teams like Arizona and Duke in the field. But we at the BSB are optimists, only three more games to win.
Next Game: Tuesday, November 19 vs Rutgers or Canisius (winner).
