The Drexel Dragons fell 0-3 on the season last Saturday at home as they lost to the Monmouth Hawks by a score of 82-74.
In the losing effort, sophomore guard Rashann London lead the Dragons in scoring with a career high 20 points. Forward Kemzebe Abif contributed with a double-double: 12 points and 13 rebounds.
The Dragons had a six point lead going into the half, but that lead soon quickly disappeared as Marmouth went firing on all cylinders. The Dragons gave up 51 points in the 2nd half.
So it is time to panic? Of course not. At least not just yet.
Here is why.
- The Dragons compete night in and night out and searching for their first win is every bit as motivating for this young team. Their competitive efforts can be seen as they almost upset the Saint Joseph’s Hawks, losing by one, to begin their season.
- They were leading in the half against Monmouth. Coach Bruiser Flint does a great job in game planning and the team can execute. The question is for how long.
- We are only three games into the season! There are still plenty of basketball left to be played and time to correct mistakes.
They have been in each game and a few plays here and there are the difference. Lead by only two seniors, guard Tavon Allen and Abif, the young team needs to grow up and grow up fast. 0-3 surely does not look good but as long as they continue to compete and be in games, they will have the opportunity to surprise some teams and win games. They are a young team.They compete. The next part is learning how to finish a game.
They will look to get their first mark on the win column against UNC Asheville Thanksgiving day at midnight (Friday) in the Great Alaska Shootout. DU Believe?
