"Now I guess it does feel pretty good," he said.
Massenat's stats weren't as prolific the second time around, but the Dragons (14-11, 6-6 CAA) didn't need them. They never trailed after his three-pointer made it 9-8, four minutes into the game.
Coach Bruiser Flint offered his own perspective on Massenat's recent dominance - he's a senior reaching the end of his college career.
"This is the only time you'll be playing besides rec ball," Flint said. "Then you'll be buying your own sneakers and paying for your own jersey."
Freshman Rodney Williams (11 points, seven rebounds, 7 for 8 on free throws) once again shined in place of the injured Kazembe Abif. Chris Fouch added 16 points and went 6 for 7 from the line.
It was the seventh loss in eight games for Hofstra (8-18, 4-7), which is in its first season under former La Salle assistant Joe Mihalich.
The Pride pulled to within three several times in the second half, but Drexel answered every time. Massenat drilled his fourth three of the night to make it 55-44 with 8 minutes, 47 seconds to go.
"I'm going to be here for graduation to make sure [Massenat] leaves," Mihalich said. "I'm going to talk to his teachers to make sure they all pass him and talk to the NCAA to make sure he uses his eligibility. . . . Other than the two times a year we play them, you root like crazy for a guy like that."
