Drexel: Bruiser Flint


James "Bruiser" Flint enters his sixth year at Drexel with high hopes.  Prior to last year's 15-16 season, the Dragons had made the postseason three years in a row.  With an experienced team back, he has hungry to get back there again.



CHN: What should we expect to be the strengths and weaknesses of this year’s team?

Bruiser Flint:  Our team should be a little deeper than years past. We have a number of returning big men, which should make us a good rebounding team once again. We have a number of seniors back and the majority of our scoring. Our weakness may be shooting, but we think we can improve on that.


CHN: Is there a player on your squad that you think deserves more credit? A guy who works hard in practice, in the workout room, and is a leader?


BF:  Chaz Crawford sometimes gets overlooked, but he has worked extremely hard in the weight room to put on weight and has worked on his offensive game this summer as well. Everyone knows about his defensive skills but we are hoping for more on the offensive end this season.


CHN: Discuss the incoming guys for a bit. Who will make the biggest impact?

BF:  We have three eligible freshmen coming in plus a transfer. Rob Hampton and Lance Feurtado should add depth to the backcourt. Yannick Formbor-Nono is a strong freshman who should contribute up front.


CHN: How hard will it be to replace the outgoing seniors? Who is ready to step up their game instead?


BF: Kenell Sanchez was a very hard worker and a great leader for us. Sophomore Scott Rodgers has a chance to make an impact at this level if he continues to progress like we saw at the end of last season. Bashir Mason has a chance to be the top point guard in the league.


CHN: What other coaches helped you reach the level of success you’re at now?  How does their advice and teachings still help you to this day?

BF: I learned a lot under Coach Calipari at UMass and we still to this day talk about basketball. We keep fresh ideas coming when we speak and and how we can improve our basketball knowledge and our basketball teams.  

What are your realistic goals and hopes for this season?

BF: Every year we try and win the CAA Championship and make the NCAA Tournament. We have gone to the postseason three of the last four years and we are hungry to get back there this season.


CHN: Thanks Coach. Anything else?


BF: No problem guys. Our next basketball camp is July 31- August 4…for info call Mike Babul at 215-895-1418.
