NEW YORK - Sean Miller insisted he didn't take Drexel lightly. The Arizona coach said he expected the type of battle that the Dragons gave his No. 4- ranked Wildcats, who finally prevailed, 66-62, in an NIT Season Tip-Off semifinal Wednesday night at Madison Square Garden. Miller said he spent nearly a week watching tape and scouting the Dragons "It's easy to say that Arizona overlooked Drexel, but that is the furthest thing from the truth," Miller said. As he watched more tape on Drexel, "it became apparent to me that we were in for one heck of a battle," Miller said.

DREXEL JUNIOR swingman Damion Lee, one of the best players in the Colonial Athletic Association, went down with a scary-looking right knee injury midway through the second half of Wednesday's NIT Season Tip-Off game against Arizona at Madison Square Garden. There is no official diagnosis yet, but Lee was declared out for today's 3:30 p.m. consolation game against Alabama. Lee was driving through the lane, jumped to shoot and came down awkwardly. He clearly was in serious pain before being helped off the court.

DREXEL COACH Bruiser Flint hopes his Dragons can improve upon their last respectable Madison Square Garden appearance. Drexel (3-1) faces unbeaten and No. 4-ranked Arizona (5-0) tonight at 7 o'clock in a NIT Season Tip-Off semifinal. In 2005, Drexel gave then-No. 1 Duke all it could handle before losing by 10 points. Then the Dragons lost by just one point to UCLA, prompting ESPN analyst Dick Vitale to exclaim, "If Drexel is the [preseason] No. 7 team in the CAA, that must be a heckuva league.

PERHAPS the city's highest-rated football recruit in the current senior class, Imhotep Charter's Deandre Scott announced last night that he orally committed to Arizona State University. Scott, a 5-8, 180-pound safety, said he received offers from more than 30 schools, including Miami, Nebraska and South Carolina. He chose the school without an official visit, in part, because of his relationship with current Sun Devils wideout and former West Catholic standout Jaelen Strong. He made the announcement via Twitter and cited a trust with ASU co-defensive coordinator Chris Ball, and potential roster room, with graduating senior defensive backs.

OPENS WITH ARIZONA The Soul will open its 2014 season on March 15 at Arizona, its chief nemesis the last few years. Philadelphia has lost its last four games against Arizona, including the last two ArenaBowl title games.

The Soul have beaten the Sharks in the conference title game the last two seasons. Iowa joins the Soul in the East Division, along with Cleveland and Pittsburgh.
