What to Know

We've got another exciting Coastal Athletic matchup on schedule as the Drexel Dragons and the Delaware Fightin' Blue Hens are set to tip at 6:30 p.m. ET on February 26th at Bob Carpenter Center. Drexel is no doubt hoping to put an end to a five-game streak of away losses.

Last Thursday, the Dragons couldn't handle the Pride and fell 69-57.

Despite the loss, Drexel got a solid performance out of Amari Williams, who scored 15 points along with five rebounds and three blocks.

Meanwhile, it's hard to win when you don't work as a unit and post ten fewer assists than your opponent, a fact Delaware found out the hard way on Thursday. They found themselves the reluctant recipients of a 90-71 punch to the gut against the Cougars. The defeat unfortunately continues a disappointing trend for Delaware in their matchups with the Cougars: they've now lost four in a row.

Delaware's defeat shouldn't obscure the performances of Christian Ray, who dropped a double-double on 11 points and 12 rebounds, and Jalun Trent who scored 12 points along with three steals.

The Dragons' defeat dropped their record down to 17-11. As for the Fightin' Blue Hens, their loss dropped their record down to an identical 17-11.

Drexel took their victory against the Fightin' Blue Hens when the teams last played back in January by a conclusive 86-67. The rematch might be a little tougher for Drexel since the squad won't have the home-court advantage this time around. We'll see if the change in venue makes a difference.
