Summer is in the rearview mirror and its left most people saying, “where did it go?” The Drexel student body is back on campus and that means that with every day that passes we are one day closer to college basketball season. Before we know it, Coach Spiker and the Dragons will be ready to take to the brand new floor on Sam Cozen Court for another exciting season of Drexel Basketball.
Judging from the Twitter accounts of Head Coach Zach Spiker, Coach Paul Fortier, and the Drexel Men’s Basketball team, they have been hard at work preparing for the coming season. If you don’t already follow them, have a look. It is a great way to keep tabs on the team in the off season.
Its was a busy summer for the Always a Dragon team. Scott has been hard at work for another summer down in enemy territory (read: Delaware) and Dan tied the knot in September. Congratulations to him. With lots of other Philadelphia sports to follow with the Phillies and Union specifically both in season, the Always a Dragon team decided to take a little break. Have no fear though, we are back and gearing up for 2017-18.
In the coming weeks, we are aiming to get you ready for the season. Schedule previews, player profiles, and tactical analyses. They are all going to be here. In the meantime though, there are a few good spots on the internet where you can wet your pallet if you want a taste of Drexel Basketball right now.
The guys over at Dragoncast have been hard at work this summer. Interviews with both Major Canady and the newest Maccabi Ra’anana power forward, Rodney Williams. Check them both out.
Season ticket deposits went “live” on August 1st so those of you who are existing ticket holders we hope you got your money in. For those of you who are thinking of taking the plunge this year and are looking for like-minded, hardcore Drexel fans, I invite you to check out the first four or five rows of Section 3, on the side closer to the Drexel bench. There you will find former Dac Pack captains, some spirited alumni, and the writing staff here at Always a Dragon. We are a welcoming bunch, and we are always looking for more faces to join us there, and in the Blue and Gold Room at halftime.
In the meantime, sit back relax, and let’s get ready for Drexel Men’s Basketball!
