Philadelphian James "Bruiser" Flint, an assistant coach at UMass under John Calipari, will replace his departed boss as head coach of the Minutemen, university officials said yesterday. Calling it a "dream come true," Flint, 31, said he was eager to continue the winning ways at UMass, which reached the Final Four for the first time last season. "I just can't tell you what this opportunity means to me, and I believe this is the beginning of a long marriage between myself and the university," said Flint, a graduate of Episcopal Academy and St. Joseph's University.

Bruiser Flint. From Merriam-Webster's Collegiate Dictionary: Bruiser: bru-zer noun: a big husky man. Flint flintn 1: a hard quartz that produces a spark when struck by steel. Flinty adj: harsh and unyielding.   So maybe he's not so much the big and husky part of that definition, although he is a long way from being frail, but made of flint? Bruiser Flint? Unyielding? Oh yes. You bet. And if you're going to coach basketball at Drexel University, you'd better be flinty, because you're going to spend your days and nights beating your head against the unpadded walls trying to earn the 3 Rs: Recognition, regard, respect.

Drexel men's basketball coach Bruiser Flint was suspended by the Colonial Athletic Association last night for one game and will not be on the sideline this afternoon when the Dragons play at No. 23 Memphis. Flint was assessed two technical fouls with 20 seconds left and ejected from the game in Saturday's 81-75 nonconference loss at Bucknell. The conference, in an e-mail, cited Flint's violation of its standards of sportsmanship. "I was trying to get a technical, but I wasn't trying to get tossed," Flint said from Memphis last night.

ANAHEIM, Calif. - The work in progress that is Drexel men's basketball succumbed to a pivotal performer at this year's Olympics in the first round of the DirecTV Classic.

The Dragons (1-3) will face Xavier at 6 p.m. Friday (ESPNU) in a consolation game. Xavier, like St. Mary's (4-0), reached the Sweet 16 in last season's NCAA Tournament.

DREXEL HAS received an oral commitment for next basketball season from a 6-4 point guard described by his high school coach as possibly "one of the biggest steals in the country. " Last season as a junior, Major Canady averaged 13 points, 10 rebounds and 13 assists for Kiski Prep in Saltsburg, Pa., east of Pittsburgh. Coach Daryn Freedman said Monday he also averaged "nine to 10 steals. " Freedman, a former student manager for coach Bruiser Flint when the latter coached at Massachusetts, said Stanford, Pittsburgh, South Florida and Virginia Tech were pursuing Canady.

Rashann London's first attempt to give an oral commitment to Drexel on Thursday resulted in a voice message. Dragons basketball coach Bruiser Flint was in a meeting. Roman Catholic's 6-foot-2 senior guard then dialed Drexel assistant and Roman alum Bobby Jordan. "I just told him I wanted to commit right now," London said. "And he was so happy. He was joking with me, saying I probably got him a raise. " London visited Drexel twice on unofficial visits and was surprised by how big the University City campus is. He is from Mount Airy and said staying close to home was a priority.

DREXEL SENIOR Damion Lee will graduate in a few months, which, in today's college basketball world, essentially makes him a free agent. Lee, who took a medical redshirt in 2013-14 after tearing an ACL in Drexel's fifth game and has 1 year of eligibility remaining, told coach Bruiser Flint over the weekend that he plans to play his final season at another school. "What are you going to do?" Flint said. "That's what he said he wants to do, so that's what he's doing. " It is essentially what Temple's Anthony Lee did last year.

While Drexel spent most of the season trying to field a healthy roster from one game to the next, something interesting was going on at the top of the Colonial Athletic Association. It seemed that nobody wanted to win it. The CAA regular season ended last weekend in an unprecedented four-team tie for first place between William and Mary, North Carolina-Wilmington, Northeastern, and James Madison, all of whom finished 12-6 in the conference. By virtue of its 5-1 record against the others, William and Mary received the top seed in the tournament.

WILLIAMSBURG, Va. - Drexel basketball coach Bruiser Flint admitted that his team is deficient when it comes to perimeter shooting. Freddie Wilson and Tavon Allen showed otherwise Saturday afternoon, leading the Dragons to an 80-66 victory over William and Mary at Kaplan Arena. Wilson scored a career-high 24 points, and Allen chipped in 22 as Drexel (11-18, 9-9) snapped a four-game losing streak. The Dragons shot 49 percent from the field and were 11 of 21 from three-point range as they spoiled the Tribe's hopes of clinching the regular-season conference title.

HARRIONBURG, Va. - Coach Bruiser Flint, in his 14th season at Drexel, has known James Madison counterpart Matt Brady for a long time. And it goes beyond the seven seasons Brady has been in the Colonial Athletic Association with the Dukes. Brady went to Paul VI High in Haddon Township, N.J., and is a former assistant coach at Saint Joseph's, where Flint graduated from in 1987. So the two were joking outside of the postgame press area here last night after JMU shot 83.3 percent in the second half and held on for a 82-78 win after the Dukes led by 12 with 2:29 to play.

It wasn't that long ago that vultures were circling around the Drexel basketball team. It wasn't long ago that they were 2-11 and didn't have enough players to dress for a full practice. Back then, coach Bruiser Flint was begging anyone other than Damion Lee to shoot the ball. Things have changed some. The Dragons won their sixth straight game Tuesday night, building a 14-point lead in the first half that they never relinquished en route to a 53-49 Colonial Athletic Association victory over Towson at the Daskalakis Athletic Center.

Drexel's injury list has grown so long that the Dragons had only eight healthy players available Thursday night for their 54-35 loss to James Madison. On the bright side, Bruiser Flint's funny bone still seems to be OK. "Did you all watch it?" the coach said, laughing, when asked what went wrong. "I know you all watched the game. The only thing is you don't have to watch it again like I do. " Drexel made just 24 percent of its shots from the floor and lost for the ninth time in 10 games.

A 9-0 DREXEL run to start last night's game against James Madison looked promising. The Dragons had lost eight of their last nine entering the contest and were hoping for their second Colonial Athletic Conference win of the year. After that, everything that could have gone wrong for Bruiser Flint's squad did, as the Dragons lost, 54-35. Drexel's offense went as cold as the wind chill in University City as the Dragons didn't make a field goal over the remaining 15:03 of the first half, and trailed 17-12 at halftime.

TOWSON, Md. - Drexel junior Damion Lee joked with Freddie Wilson after the game Thursday night, telling the reserve guard he could have scored 20 points against Towson. "He left some free throws out there," Lee said of Wilson, who made 8 of 12 shots from the foul line and ended with a career-high 14 points and three steals in 29 minutes. The fact that the Dragons could joke around was good news as Drexel beat Towson, 55-41, to snap a seven-game losing streak, the longest in Bruiser Flint's 14 years as head coach.

Jack Anton saw his Elon teammate stumble while driving to the hoop, so the freshman grabbed the loose ball, stepped behind the arc, and drilled an uncontested three-pointer. The closest Drexel players to him wore street clothes and walking boots and sported crutches at the end of the bench. Drexel was battered, 77-67, Saturday at the Daskalakis Athletic Center in the Phoenix' debut game in the Colonial Athletic Association, the league opener for both teams and the hobbled Dragons' sixth consecutive defeat.
