The Drexel Dragons are piling up the losses due to subpar play at both ends of the court, and they're not covering games either. Hofstra does a decent job of being able to control the pace and has been a covering machine when its on the road. The Pride should be able to light up this Drexel defense and get another solid victory on the road.
