Martelli: 'It's the right thing to do'

For me, the main storyline in last night's Saint Joseph's-Drexel game wasn't about any of the players. It was about Drexel getting a Big 5 team to come to the DAC.

Martelli: 'It's the right thing to do'

For me, the main storyline in last night's Saint Joseph's-Drexel game wasn't about any of the players. It was about Drexel getting a Big 5 team to come to the DAC.

Yes, it happened two years ago with Penn, but it's not something we see very often. Dragons coach Bruiser Flint's plight when it comes to scheduling home games of any kind is well-known to all of us.

It so happened that the coach across the floor from Flint was another guy who's quite happy to talk when there's a microphone in front of him: Phil Martelli.

So I will let the two of them do the talking in this post. You can listen to their lengthy postgame remarks in the audio player below. There's also an exclusive interview I did with Joe Lunardi before the game.
