"I'm just happy I didn't cry," said Massenat, who passed Bob Stephens and moved into seventh place in Drexel history with 1,619 points. "It's emotional. You play a lot of games here. The people here like you. The fans like you. A lot of people say congratulations to you after the games. They talk to you all the time. The last time playing in front of them, it's definitely emotional."
After trailing by six at the break, Drexel went on a 16-4 run over the first seven minutes of the second half to take the lead, which included eight points from Massenat.
"You don't want your last home game to go out with a loss," Massenat said. "It's definitely in your mind. You're thinking about it all the time."
The outgoing group of Drexel seniors won its 79th game with the win against Charleston (14-16, 6-9).
"All my seniors have been great this year," Drexel coach Bruiser Flint said. "I think those guys have helped us keep our heads above water. They never got down."
Massenat was removed from the game to a standing ovation with 4.8 seconds left and the game in hand. After he slapped hands with freshman Major Canady, he walked to the Drexel home bench for the final time. As he approached a hug with Flint, he had his eyes focused toward the crowd where his father was seated with his right thumb up.
This night, like his four years at Drexel, was a dream for Massenat.
