What to Know
The Drexel Dragons have the luxury of staying home another game and will welcome the Pennsylvania Quakers at 7 p.m. ET Nov. 15 at John A Daskalakis Center. Drexel is the slight favorite, but fans of both teams should be in for an exciting matchup likely to go down to the wire.
While not quite a landslide, the contest between the Dragons and the Old Dominion Monarchs this past Friday was still a pretty decisive one as Drexel wrapped it up with a 71-59 win at home.
Meanwhile, UPenn was within striking distance but couldn't close the gap on Sunday as they fell 80-74 to the Towson Tigers.
Drexel's victory brought them up to 1-0 while UPenn's loss pulled them down to 0-3. A couple last-season numbers to keep in mind before tip-off: Drexel is 352nd worst in college basketball in takeaways, with only 11 on average. The Quakers experienced some struggles of their own as they are stumbling into the game with the 360th fewest takeaways in college basketball, having accrued only 10.7 on average. It's possible one of these Achilles' heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
