HEMPSTEAD, N.Y. - Before each Drexel men's basketball game, the team attempts half-court shots to wrap up its shootaround. On Wednesday, before the Dragons met Hofstra, the shooting ended prematurely when assistant coach Bobby Jordan sank his shot.
That kept Frantz Massenat from getting his heave.
"Good thing," the junior guard said. "Maybe I saved it."
Massenat connected on his lone half-court shot at the end of regulation and beat the buzzer to give Drexel a dramatic, 55-52 win over Hofstra at the Mack Sports Complex. There was debate about whether Massenat walked, but Drexel (7-11, 3-3 Colonial Athletic Association) has its first winning streak of the year.
