COLUMBUS, Ohio – The IUPUI basketball team will face a daunting task on Tuesday (Jan. 18) when the Jaguars take on No. 19/18 Ohio State (11-4) inside Value City Arena at 7:00 p.m. The game will be broadcast on the Big Ten Network as Chris Vosters (pxp) and Trent Meacham (analyst) call the action. 

IUPUI (1-14) is coming off a tough road trip through Wisconsin as the Jaguars dropped contests at both Green Bay and Milwaukee last week. On Saturday, Bakari LaStrap and Azariah Seay had nine points apiece as the Jaguars fell at Milwaukee, 89-54. It marked IUPUI’s worst defensive effort of the year as the Panthers posted 89 points and shot 62 percent from the floor against the Jaguars. It marked the first time this year the Jags had allowed a foe to hit better than 50 percent from the floor, coming in the season’s 15th game. 

Junior Mike DePersia came off the IUPUI bench with eight points, four boards and three assists and Jonah Carrasco had seven points, four rebounds and a career-high three steals. DeAndre Gholston led Milwaukee with 21 points, including hitting five treys. 

The Jags enter Tuesday’s gameat 0-17 all-time against ranked opponents and have lost 10 straight to Big Ten foes since defeating Northwestern back in 2002. The Jags are 0-2 against Ohio State, having lost on trips to Columbus in 2001 and 2010. 


Ohio State is ranked No. 19/18 nationally and comes in at 11-4 overall and 8-0 at home this season. The Buckeyes have impressive wins this season, having defeated both Duke and Seton Hall in non-conference play. E.J. Liddell leads OSU in scoring (19.9 ppg), rebounds (7.1 rpg), minutes played (31.0 mpg) and blocked shots (45). Malaki Branham also scores in double-digits at 10.2 points per game while eight different OSU players average better than six points per game. As a team, OSU shoots 48 percent overall and 37 percent from three while holding foes to 41 percent overall and 32 percent from beyond the arc. 


IUPUI is 0-2 all-time against Ohio State, losing in trips to Columbus in 2001 and 2010. 


IUPUI will return home and return to Horizon League play when the Jaguars host Wright State at 7:00 p.m. on Thursday night (Jan. 20) inside Indiana Farmers Coliseum. The game will be broadcast on ESPN+. 

Game Notes (click here for the full PDF packet)


  • IUPUI is 0-17 all-time against ranked opponents in the program’s Division I era (1998-present). The last time IUPUI faced Ohio State on Dec. 9, 2010, the Buckeyes were ranked No. 2 nationally and outlasted the Jaguars, 75-64. 
  • IUPUI hasn’t defeated a Big Ten opponent since Nov. 27, 2002 when the Jaguars won at Northwestern, 56-53. Since then, IUPUI has dropped 10 straight to Big Ten opponents, which includes the 2010 meeting with Ohio State. 
  • IUPUI has made three trips to Ohio State’s Value City Arena in the program’s history – road games against the Buckeyes in 2001 and 2010, both of which ended in defeat. Additionally, IUPUI opened the 2006-07 season by participating in the BCA Classic in Columbus, facing Alabama A&M, Kent State and Loyola Chicago in neutral site games. 
  • With a rash of injuries in December, the IUPUI starting lineup and rotations has become a patchwork chore for first year head coach Matt Crenshaw. Of the 11 players who have seen action this season, 10 have now started at least one game this season. Freshman Boston Stanton III is the lone IUPUI player to have started all 15 games. 
  • Of IUPUI’s 11 active players, 10 have scored in double-figures in at least one game this season with senior Jonah Carrasco adding his name to that list last Monday night (Jan. 10). Carrasco had a perfect shooting night, hitting all four field goals and both of his free throws in tallying a career-high 10 points against UIC. The only player to have not scored in double-digits this season is junior guard Mike DePersia.  
  • Maxwell leads IUPUI in scoring (11.6 ppg), rebounding (4.6 rpg), minutes played (31.5 mpg), free throw percentage (81.4%) and threes made (18). Maxwell has led IUPUI in scoring in nine of his 14 appearances and had a career-high 20 points (6-11 FG, 3-4 3’s, 5-5 FT) against Chicago State just before Christmas break. 
  • The IUPUI basketball team had a 3.23 grade point average for the fall with 10 of the 14 team members notching a 3.0 or better. Nathan McClure had a perfect 4.0 in the fall and Stanton had a 3.95 mark. As a team, the Jaguars currently have a cumulative 3.37 team GPA. 

    IUPUI is coming off its worst defensive showing of the year, yielding a season-high 89 points in an 89-54 loss at Milwaukee on Saturday afternoon (Jan. 15)… in addition to the 89 points allowed, IUPUI also allowed a season-high 63.2 percent from the floor, 13 threes, 52.0 percent from three-point range and 19 assists… it marked the first time this season an IUPUI foe shot better than 50 percent from the floor… redshirt junior Nathan McClure, who had attempted just seven free throws all season, hit all six of his tries at Milwaukee… both Mike DePersia and Bakari LaStrap were a perfect 2-of-2 from three-point range in the loss… Azariah Seay had a season-high three assists and Jonah Carrasco had a career-high three steals after collecting just two steals in his first 28 career games… the Milwaukee game marked the second time this year the Jags failed to put a player in double-digits… the Jags matched their season-high with 30 bench points, fueled by nine each from LaStrap and Seay off the bench. 


   IUPUI is 0-2 all-time against Ohio State and 1-4 all-time inside Value City Arena. The Jags lost games to Ohio State in both 2001 and 2010 and went 1-2 in the 2006 BCA Classic at Value City Arena, defeating Alabama A&M in the opener before falling to Kent State and Loyola Chicago the following two days. 

    The takeaway from the 2006 trip was future NBAer George Hill suffered a foot injury in game two to Kent State, ultimately causing him to redshirt the 2006-07 campaign. 


    Head coach Matt Crenshaw was in the IUPUI starting five when the Jaguars visited Ohio State on Dec. 8, 2001, finishing with six points, four boards and two assists while playing a team-high 30 minutes in the 83-70 loss. Antoine Lewis paced the Jaguars with 19 points (9-13 FG) in that contest and Lance Williams added 13 (4-12 FG, 3-5 3’s, 2-2 FT). 


    After scoring just 30 points in the season’s first nine games combined, senior Azariah Seay has been on a scoring binge, averaging 13.2 points per game over the past six games. Seay tallied a career-high 17 on 8-of-12 shooting against Morehead State on Dec. 21. 


    IUPUI has used a trio of bodies in the middle this season in Jonah Carrasco, Chuks Isitua and Dimitar Pandev. Collectively, the group is averaging 10.2 points, 7.3 rebounds and 1.3 blocked shots per game while shooting 51 percent (56-of-110) from the field. 


    IUPUI entered the Dec. 21 Morehead State game with nine healthy bodies and finished the night with just seven cleared for takeoff. In addition to Seay’s career-high 17, two others made the most of an extended opportunity as sophomore Bakari LaStrap finished with a career-high 11 points (5-11 FG, 1-1 FT) in 35 minutes off the bench and senior Dimitar Pandev also had a career-high 11 (3-3 FG, 2-2 3’s, 3-6 FT) in just 18 minutes. 

    IUPUI’s top scorer, B.J. Maxwell, was limited to just three points on 1-of-7 shooting. 


    With IUPUI’s scoring coming via committee, IUPUI is averaging 19.7 points per game off the bench this season. IUPUI has received 10-or-more points from its bench in every game this season and has had a season-high 30 points twice, including at Milwaukee on Saturday (Jan. 15). 


    Maxwell is an interesting case study in today’s new world of college basketball as he’s entering his seventh year of college this season. After redshirting his opening season (2015-16) at Abilene Christian, he played three full seasons at ACU before transferring out for a fifth season. He played just two games at Detroit Mercy in 2019-20 before suffering a season ending injury and receiving another season of eligibility. He spent all of last season at Saint Edward’s University in Austin, Texas, where he averaged 18.6 points and 5.3 boards per game while earning NABC Second Team All-District honors.

    After all NCAA student-athletes were granted an additional year of eligibility due to COVID-19 issues, Maxwell opted to join the IUPUI program for a seventh season of schooling. He enters this season having played 94 collegiate basketball games and having scored 758 points across both NCAA Division I and II levels.     

    CHASING 1,000

    Maxwell’s journey has spanned four schools in three different states at both the Division I and Division II levels, but through it all, he’s closing in on 1,000 collegiate points. Maxwell has 921 collegiate points entering play – 385 at Abilene Christian, 2 at Detroit Mercy, 371 at St. Edward’s University and 163 this season at IUPUI.

University Monitoring Winter Weather and Travel Conditions for Monday, Jan. 10, and Tuesday, Jan. 11

Campus & Community

Syracuse University is monitoring weather conditions pertaining to a Winter Weather Advisory, currently in place until 1 a.m. Tuesday, Jan. 11, and a Wind Chill Advisory, which goes into effect tonight and is expected to remain in place through the morning of Tuesday, Jan. 11. This effort includes reviewing the most up-to-date National Weather Service data and forecasting, and consulting with an independent meteorologist about what to expect.

Based on the current forecast, the University expects to remain open and operational while these weather advisories remain in effect.

The latest information from the National Weather Service indicates there will be potentially significant lake effect snow depending on location, heavy snow squalls and wind chills that could get as low as 30 degrees below zero with wind gusts as high as 30 miles per hour. Combined, these conditions could cause bitter cold temperatures and significant blowing and drifting snow. As such, Syracuse University’s Department of Public Safety is reminding students, faculty and staff about steps they can take to stay safe during this inclement weather, including:

  • Dress to stay warm and dry, including wearing a hat, a scarf or knit mask to cover face and mouth; sleeves that are snug at the wrist; mittens (they are warmer than gloves); water-resistant coat and shoes; and several layers of loose-fitting clothing.
  • Do not ignore shivering. It’s an important first sign that the body is losing heat. Persistent shivering is a signal to return indoors.
  • Avoid ice. Take the time to carefully walk around icy ground. Choose footwear that will enable you to “get a grip.”
  • Be cautious about travel. Before driving, check for weather advisories. Avoid traveling on ice-covered roads if at all possible. If you must travel, try to travel with a friend, and take a cell phone with you.

Although Syracuse University rarely closes for inclement weather, individuals must make personal decisions based on a risk assessment related to travel. Employees are encouraged to take precautions and use good judgment when traveling to/from work. Faculty and staff concerned about their safety should contact their department chair or supervisor, respectively.

Any change in the University’s operating status will be announced via the University’s emergency broadcast notification system and will carry the notice SU WEATHER ALERT. Please be sure your Orange Alert settings are always up to date in MySlice.

SU WEATHER ALERT information will be announced via the following communications channels:

Only Syracuse University’s Internal Communications and Media Relations teams are authorized to transmit to the news media and the campus community announcements about closings, work-schedule changes or class-start delays.

UPDATE: Downed trees, black ice continue to impede travel Tuesday morning | News

UPDATE TUESDAY MORNING: The Virginia State Police reported Tuesday morning that downed trees and black ice are the major issues remaining from Monday’s snowstorm. Virginians are still discouraged from traveling until later today, for their safety and to help expedite the process of clearing, treating and plowing interstate, primary and secondary roadways.

VDOT reported that Interstate 95 is closed northbound and southbound from exit 152 (Dumfries Road) to exit 104 (Carmel Church) as crews continue work to remove stopped trucks, treat for icing and plow snow. Motorists should avoid the area.

“We know many travelers have been stuck on Interstate 95 in our region for extraordinary periods of time over the past 24 hours, in some cases since Monday morning. This is unprecedented, and we continue to steadily move stopped trucks to make progress toward restoring lanes. In addition to clearing the trucks, we are treating for snow and several inches of ice that has accumulated around them to ensure that when the lanes reopen, motorists can safely proceed to their destination,” said Marcie Parker, P.E. VDOT Fredericksburg District engineer.

The VDOT press release said, “Motorists should plan to avoid travel on I-95 in this area until lanes reopen and significant congestion clears the area. Even as travel lanes reopen, additional time will be needed to assist motorists who have been stopped for extended periods on I-95 overnight, and in some cases since Monday morning.” 

VDOT reported that the storm brought more than 12 inches of snow to the region. After working all night, Virginia Department of Transportation crews are making progress clearing roads across the Culpeper District. Conditions vary greatly, with most primary highways, Interstate 64 and I-66 reported in minor condition with patches of snow and ice remaining on the roads. The fallen trees and power lines that closed I-64 yesterday afternoon have been cleared and all lanes are open.

Most secondary roads are in moderate condition with large sections of the road covered with frozen snow, slush and ice. 

Crews will continue to work today until all roads are in passable condition. Progress is expected to be slow as many trees have also fallen on those roads and will need to be removed to allow plows to complete their work.

The VSP provided an update on calls: From 12:01 a.m. Monday, Jan. 3 through midnight Monday, Virginia State Police responded to 988 reports of disabled/stuck vehicles and 1,002 traffic crashes. The majority of the crashes continue to involve only damage to vehicles. There have been few injuries and no reported traffic deaths related to the storm.

From 12:01 a.m. Tuesday, Jan. 4 through 6:30 a.m., Tuesday, Jan. 4, VSP have responded to 14 traffic crashes and assisted 38 disabled motorists. In addition to those numbers, Virginia State Police are currently on scene of 16 traffic crashes statewide and responding to/aiding 46 disabled vehicles. (The disabled numbers do not reflect those vehicles stuck in the impacted stretch of I-95 near Fredericksburg.)

There is only one new report of a closure/postponement for today. The WARF will open at noon on Tuesday, Jan. 4.

UPDATE FROM VDOT: A press release from the Virginia Department of Transportation released at 6:45 p.m. Monday said that road conditions could still be dangerous Tuesday morning.

The release said, “Most roads across the southern part of Virginia Department of Transportation’s Culpeper District are reported in moderate condition, with much of the roadway surface covered by heavy snow and deep slush. VDOT and contractor crews continue to focus their work on the interstate and primary highways across that part of the district.”

The release reported that snow fell at rates of 1.5 to two inches per hour for most of the morning, leaving crews continually retracing their plow routes on major roads to keep up with the rapidly accumulating snow.

Up to a foot of snow fell across the district, with the highest amounts reported in Fluvanna, eastern Orange and Louisa counties. VDOT’s snow removal operations have also been hampered by thousands of fallen trees and downed power lines that must be removed to open the roads, the press release said. 

VDOT crews from the Culpeper District are working east through the trees and debris; crews with Richmond District are making similar slow progress working west. Once the trees are removed, heavy equipment is being used to clear snow from the highway.

Less snow fell in the northern part of Culpeper District; Interstate 66 in Fauquier County is clear, VDOT reported. The primary highways in the Warrenton area are in minor condition — mostly clear with patches of slush and snow. Secondary roads are in minor to moderate condition with snow and slush covering sections of the roads, according to VDOT.

The update stated, “Given the situation with heavy, drifting snow, high winds, power lines and fallen trees, it is likely that some secondary roads and neighborhood streets will not be plowed until Tuesday. VDOT’s crews will work through the night; day shift crews will continue operations beginning at 8 a.m. Tuesday. 

“Roads will remain slick even after plowing and high winds are forecast to continue into the evening, adding the risk of falling trees and other debris as well as drifting snow to the roadway hazards.

“Temperatures are forecast to plummet into the teens overnight, so snow, slush and water on the roads will freeze and create extremely slick, dangerous driving conditions early Tuesday morning. VDOT recommends that residents delay non-essential travel until later in the day Tuesday, after more roads have been plowed and sunshine and rising temperatures have helped melt some of the ice.”

UPDATE FROM VDOT: VDOT Northern Virginia crews will remain on duty this afternoon and overnight to push accumulation, as well as to treat roads overnight for the refreeze of any melted precipitation to the pavement.

Winds and the weight of heavy, wet snow are bringing down trees, branches and power lines.

UPDATE FROM FAUQIUER COUNTY SCHOOLS: Both Fauquier County School Board meetings scheduled for Tuesday, Jan. 4 (which were rescheduled from Monday, Jan. 3 last night) have been postponed. The School Board planning summit, originally scheduled for Friday, Jan. 7, is also postponed.

UPDATE FROM THE VIRGINIA STATE POLICE: As snow, sleet and rain continue to fall across various regions of Virginia today, Virginia State Police troopers continue to respond to traffic crashes and disabled vehicles caused by motorists driving too fast for conditions, according to Corinne N. Geller, spokeswoman for the VSP.

In an 11 a.m. press release, she stressed that state police is still asking people to avoid driving unless absolutely unnecessary. “The drive is not worth the risk of a crash, getting stuck, injury to your/passenger, or the cost of a repair,” the release said.

Before 10:30 a.m., state police have responded to 313 traffic crashes and aided 277 disabled/stuck motorists from the storm. The majority of those crashes have involved only damage to vehicles. There have been no reported fatalities at this time, said Geller.

State police are currently responding to 137 traffic crashes and 119 disabled/stuck vehicles across the state. 

In the Culpeper division, which includes Fauquier, Culpeper, Clarke, Frederick, Madison, Orange, Page, Rappahannock, Rockingham, Shenandoah, Spotsylvania, Stafford and Warren counties, there have been 37 disabled vehicles and 16 traffic crashes.

UPDATE FROM FAUQUIER HEALTH: Fauquier Health announced at 10 a.m. that all offsite locations will be closed on Jan. 3. Offices are expected to open again Jan. 4.

The closed offices include: 

  • Fauquier Health Physical Therapy & Rehabilitation
  • Sleep Center
  • Wound Healing Center
  • The Wellness Center (including cardiac and pulmonary rehab and therapy)
  • Outpatient Laboratory Services

All Fauquier Health Physician Services clinics will also be closed, including: Family Practice at Bealeton, General Surgery at Culpeper, Multi-Specialty Clinic, OB/GYN & Midwifery offices, Piedmont Internal Medicine and Urology.

UPDATE FROM THE TOWN OF WARRENTON: In the town of Warrenton, Town Hall will be closed today, as will the Department of Parks and Recreation offices and the WARF.

Trash services are suspended for today.

Superintendent of Schools David Jeck amended his tweet from earlier to say that all school offices are closed and essential staff should stay home for the day.

UPDATE FROM VDOT: As of 6 a.m., “heavy snow is expected to continue through the morning, with significant accumulations in a short period of time. Later today high winds will add to the hazardous conditions with the potential for trees and debris to fall on roads,” according to a press release from the Virginia Department of Transportation.

The release said that VDOT crews and contractors are deployed across the district. VDOT workers will be concentrating on Interstate 64, I-66 and primary highways. They are treating the roads with a mix of sand and salt to improve traction and help melt the snow. Once the snow and slush accumulates to about two inches the plows will push the snow off the roadways. Crews will work around the clock to clear roads, shifting onto secondary roads and neighborhood streets once the main roads are cleared. 

VDOT’s customer service center is open 24 hours a day to answer questions and take reports of roadway hazards. Call 1-800-FOR-ROAD (367-7623) or visit https://my.vdot.virginia.gov.

ORIGINAL STORY: The National Weather Service is calling for accumulations of snow, as well as combinations of rain and sleet in the early morning hours of Monday, Jan. 3. Corinne N. Geller, public relations director for the Virginia State Police said that the predicted snowstorm could be “a serious winter weather situation” that will affect much of the state.

A VCP press release said, “The Virginia State Police is encouraging Virginians to plan ahead and avoid having to travel during inclement conditions. If you can delay your travel overnight and early Monday, please do until VDOT has an opportunity to treat/clear roadways for safe travel.”

The release added, “The Virginia State Police is already preparing for the winter weather and will have all available troopers on patrol in order to respond as quickly as possible to traffic crashes, emergencies and disabled motorists.”

The potential storm has already caused a couple of cancellations.


Both Fauquier County School Board meetings scheduled for Monday, Jan. 3 have been postponed to Tuesday, Jan. 4. At the 10:30 a.m. closed session meeting, the school board will conduct candidate interviews for the interim Scott District seat that became vacant when Suzanne Sloane stepped down on Dec. 15.

An organizational and special meeting – at which school board members are expected to vote on the appointment of a new Scott District member — will begin at 6:30 p.m. Both meetings will be held at the school board office and the evening meeting will be livestreamed.

Click on meetings below to see the agendas:

Jan. 3 and 4 had been scheduled as in-school teacher work days, but because of the forecast, all school offices will be closed Jan. 3. Monday will instead be a work from home day for teachers, according to a tweet from Superintendent of Schools David Jeck. Essential staff only will report at noon (subject to change).

Students will return to classrooms on Jan. 5, as scheduled.

Town of Warrenton

Town of Warrenton offices will delay opening for two hours. Town Manager Brandie Schaeffer said she will reassess the situation once information is available about road conditions.

The Warrenton Aquatic and Recreation Facility at 800 Waterloo Road will open at 10 a.m.

Geller suggests that anyone who must travel during the storm should take precautions:

  • Before heading out, check Virginia road conditions at www.511virginia.org or download the VDOT 511 app.
  • Clear all snow and ice from the roof, trunk, hood and windows of vehicles — car, SUV, minivan, pickup truck, commercial vehicle — before traveling.
  • Use headlights in rain and snow. Virginia law requires headlights on when wipers are active.
  • Drive for conditions — slow down and increase traveling distance between vehicles.
  • Always buckle up.
  • Avoid distractions — put down the phone.
  • Do not call 911 or #77 for road conditions. Leave emergency lines open for emergencies only.

Ohio State to Retest For COVID-19 Sunday Before Making Call on Tuesday UT Martin Matchup

A round of COVID-19 tests on Sunday will determine whether or not the Buckeyes can return to action against UT Martin Tuesday.

Ohio State was forced to cancel its matchup with Kentucky at the CBS Sports Classic in Las Vegas on Saturday due to a COVID-19 outbreak in the program. According to a report from CBS Sports’ Jon Rothstein, the Buckeyes will retest on Sunday before making a final call on their upcoming matchup with the Skyhawks, which is scheduled for a 7 p.m. tip-off at the Schottenstein Center.

After Tuesday’s game, the Buckeyes aren’t scheduled to return to the hardwood until the following Tuesday, when Ohio State is slated to take on New Orleans on Dec. 28.

“As you may have heard, we are temporarily shut down due to COVID positives within our program. I know our players, our coaching staff are disappointed about not being able to travel to Las Vegas and play Kentucky in what’s become an outstanding event in the CBS Sports Classic,” Ohio State head coach Chris Holtmann said in an Instagram video after the cancellation on Thursday. “But the health and the safety of our players is of utmost importance, and we look forward to continuing to get more direction as we continue to test here in the coming days.

“I do want to thank university leadership, athletic department leadership as well as our incredible medical team for giving us direction here in these last 36 hours. We hope this is a temporary pause, we look forward to getting back on the floor here soon and thanks for your support, Buckeye Nation.”

Dangerous travel conditions expected Tuesday evening – Buckrail

JACKSON, Wyo. — A strong cold front will move across Teton County on Tuesday evening, resulting in a 2-3 hour period of significant travel impacts due to intense snowfall rates, strong winds, whiteout conditions and flash freezing on the roads.

The front is associated with a powerful storm that has produced significant snowfall over the Cascade and Sierra Nevada ranges from Washington to California in recent days.

Based on the lastest short-range weather models, the cold front will most likely cross the Idaho/Wyoming border sometime between 6-8 p.m. Once the front arrives, travel conditions will quickly deteriorate over the next couple of hours with the most significant impacts expected over Teton Pass. Snowfall rates of 2-3 inches per hour will be possible as the front moves through, which combined with gusty winds, may result in near whiteout conditions.

The Snake River Canyon and Jackson Hole Valley will also see significant travel impacts as the front arrives with heavy snow, strong winds, and quickly falling temperatures leading to the potential for “flash freezing” (when wet roads quickly turn to ice). Travel impacts will extend eastward over Togwotee Pass as well, though the timing will be a little later.

Please plan your travel accordingly and be extra careful if you’re out on the roads on Tuesday evening.

Dragons Face Coppin State on Tuesday Night at the DAC

Game Info: Tuesday, December 14, 2021 – 8:00 p.m.
Location: Daskalakis Athletic Center – Philadelphia, Pa.

Tweet #FearTheDragon 

PHILADELPHIA – The Drexel men’s basketball team is back in action at the Daskalakis Athletic Center on Tuesday for the final time before winter break. The Dragons will host Coppin State in their final non-conference home game of the season. The game will tip-off at 8 p.m. and is part of a doubleheader with the women’s team. The Drexel women play Yale at 5 p.m.. The 2021-22 Drexel men’s basketball season is presented by IBEW 98. 


Drexel leads the all-time series with the Eagles, 2-0. The two teams met at the Daskalakis Athletic Center last season, where the Dragons came away with a 69-54 win. All five Drexel starters scored at least 10 points. Cam Wynter led the way with 15 points. Koby Thomas scored 15 for the Eagles. The previous meeting came way back in 1985, when Drexel defeated Coppin State, 88-66, at the Marist Pepsi Classic in December of 1985.


The Dragons are now 4-5 after suffering a 73-56 loss at Abilene Christian on Saturday. Drexel had their looks in the first half but couldn’t get many 3-pointers to fall. DU was just 2-for-16 from deep in the half as the Wildcats won for the 18th straight time on their home court. Lamar Oden, Jr., tied a career-high with 12 points and made two 3-pointers. Tre Brown added a season-high 11 points. James Butler snared 13 rebounds.

Through nine games, James Butler leads the team with 14.9 points. He is also the leading rebounder in the CAA with 10.2 per game. Camren Wynter chips in with 14.2 points and a team-high 3.9 assists. Graduate student Melik Martin (10.3) and sophomore Xavier Bell (10.1) each average in double figures. The Dragons are shooting the ball well from the floor this season, making almost 47 percent of their shots. However, they haven’t been as effective from deep as of late. Drexel is shooting just .325 from long range.


The Eagles are off to a tough start and sit at 1-13 coming in. They have had a brutal schedule with 12 of their first 14 games on the road. Included in that are road games at Virginia, Loyola of Chicago, De Paul, UConn and St. Bonaventure. Coppin State’s win came against Loyola of Maryland. Jesse Zarzuela is one of three Eagles in double figures scoring with 15.7 points per game. Tyree Corbett scores 13.2 per contest, while Nendah Tarke averages 11.6. The Eagles like to shoot 3-pointers and almost half of their shots this season come from behind the arc.


Drexel will play its final two games before winter break on the road in Philadelphia. The Dragons face Temple on Saturday and travel to La Salle next Tuesday.


Our neighbors from the 19104 zip code can receive a discounted $5 ticket to all Drexel Basketball home games in December! Show your license or state ID with the 19104 zip code at the Ticket Office to redeem your $5 ticket!

In addition, all fans will receive one free schedule magnet upon entry to the DAC while supplies last. Show up early to get your magnet and support your Dragons.
