The Drexel Dragons are ready to tip off their 2012-2013 college basketball season. Gold Coast Tickets does not want you to miss out on the action as the Drexel Dragons hope to be better than a bubble team, and win the Colonial Athletic Association Conference Tournament in this upcoming season.

In the 2011-2012 season the Dragons went 29-7, and 16-2 in conference play. The Dragons were a bubble team, and hoped to make it into the NCAA Tournament for the first time since the 1996 season. Unfortunately, the committee was not on their side, and although they had the best record in the Colonial Athletic Association, they did not make it into the NCAA Tournament. Instead, they were a #3 seed in the NIT. They made it all the way to the quarterfinal game when they matched up with the Atlantic 10’s Umass Minutemen. Drexel led at halftime by 10 points, the Minutemen were too good in the second half and escaped in a close victory 72-70.
This season the Dragons will return leading scorer Frantz Massenat for his sophomore season. Massenat lead the team in points per game and assists per game last season. Samme Givens, the team’s leading rebounder, will be lost due to graduation. The Dragons play their home games at the beautiful Daskalakis Athletic Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. It is here that the Dragon faithful hope Flint can continue his success from last season and make it into the NCAA Tournament. The Dragons have only made the NCAA Tournament four times, and three consecutive years in the 1994-1996 seasons.
