Drexel went 3-1 over their first four outings this year, beating Old Dominion, Arcadia and TX-Arlington. The Dragons lost to Florida Gulf Coast, Indiana State and Temple before another win over Lafayette. 

Matched up against Princeton last weekend, the Dragons were down 36-27 by halftime. Drexel was outscored 47-36 in the second half and limped to an 83-63 blowout loss. Lamar Oden Jr. was tops in scoring with 16 points.

PICK: I’ll probably try La Salle in this one. The Explorers have had some bumps in the road this season, however they’re generally keeping pace with comparable squads. La Salle has hit a combined 166 points over their last two games, which is a welcome sight after four straight outings with 65 or fewer. As for Drexel, they’ve posted 64 or fewer points in three straight games. That said, I like the Dragons to match up well here and hang around in a high-scoring finish.
