Philadelphia – An ESPN game with Penn at the Daskalakis Athletic Center highlights the Drexel men’s basketball 2008-09 schedule. In addition, the Dragons will visit Memphis and Georgetown in non-conference play. Memphis advanced to last year’s NCAA championship game, while the Hoyas were Final Four participants in 2007.

The Dragons open the season on Nov. 18 in a unique ESPN event. Drexel will host Penn at 10 a.m. at the DAC as part of a marathon of 14 college basketball games that day spread over 23 consecutive hours. That will be one of two games against Philadelphia opponents. Drexel will once again play Saint Joseph’s at the Palestra on New Year’s Eve.

The Dragons will host Cal-State Northridge and Niagara in non-conference games at the DAC. They will also host a team to be announced in ESPN’s Bracketbuster series on Feb. 21. It will be the fifth straight season the Dragons have participated in the even. Other road games include contests at Bucknell, at Rider and a return game at Fairfield from last season’s Bracketbusters match up.

The Colonial Athletic Association schedule begins on Dec. 6 with a home game against George Mason. It will be the only conference game in December. The rest of the conference slate gets underway in January, when Drexel plays four of its first six CAA games in the month on the road. This season, Drexel will play home and home series against Delaware, George Mason, Georgia State, Hofstra, Northeastern, Towson and William & Mary. The Dragons visit James Madison and UNC Wilmington and host Old Dominion and Virginia Commonwealth.

Game times and complete television schedule will be announced at a later date.
