Drexel vs Princeton 2012: Struggling Dragons travel to NJ

Howard Smith-US PRESSWIRE

Drexel hits the road for the second-straight game when it visits Princeton.

Drexel visits the Princeton Tigers on Saturday, and the Dragons are looking to turn their season around before conference play begins. Drexel has lost six of its first eight games after returning most of the squad that narrowly missed an at-large berth to the NCAA Tournament last season. The Dragons have been hurt by injuries, as sharpshooting guard Chris Fouch is already out for the season.

Junior Frantz Massenat has struggled to match the impressive outside shooting from his sophomore year, as he has hit just 35 percent from three after knocking down 45 percent a season ago. He also has seen an uptick in turnovers, and is giving the ball away on 24 percent of his possession. The Dragons are going to need better play from their best player if they are to make a run in CAA play.

Ian Hummer dominates the ball for Princeton. He uses 33 percent of the possessions while he is on the floor, and assists on 44.4 percent of the baskets. He would be served well to pass the ball off to his teammates a little more, as Hummer's 24 percent turnover rate kills his efficiency.

The two teams are set to tip off at 2 p.m. ET and the game will not be televised.
