Drexel University, which has competed in the America East conference since 1991, will take its 18-sport athletic program to the Colonial Athletic Association for the 2003-2004 school year. Drexel is one of four America East schools that are leaving for the CAA. The others are Delaware, Hofstra and Towson. They will join current association members George Mason, James Madison, North Carolina-Wilmington, Old Dominion, Virginia Commonwealth, and William and Mary. The official announcement on the addition of the teams to the CAA will be made tomorrow during a news conference in Washington, D.C. "Drexel is pleased to be joining the Colonial Athletic Association because of its record of strong academic performance combined with its great athletics," said Constantine Papadakis, Drexel's president.

Drexel, Delaware, Hofstra and Towson have asked the America East Conference to let them know by tomorrow whether they will be free to join the Colonial Athletic Association a year earlier than planned. The presidents of the schools that make up the America East Conference postponed a discussion Monday that could have allowed the four schools to join the CAA next season. In January, after the four schools announced their intention to join the CAA, the America East agreed to let them go in 2002-03.

THE LAST MOMENT of an elimination game in the Colonial Athletic Association baseball tournament yesterday came down to one Catholic League product vs. another. William Dougherty (Roman) used a classic slide to score the game-winner as Northeastern edged Delaware, 7-6, in Harrisonburg, Va. The throw came from rightfielder Nick Ferdinand (Ryan). Dougherty's RBI single had drawn Northeastern within 6-5. Ferdinand posted a two-run homer among three hits.

Caron Butler had 24 points and 15 rebounds to lead No. 23 Connecticut (20-6, 12-3 Big East) past Boston College, 75-61, last night. Boston College (18-10, 7-8) is battling to get into the NCAA tourney, and last night was its last chance to impress the selectors with a regular-season win over a ranked team. Uka Agbai had 12 of his 19 points in the first half. Without him, Boston College shot 3 for 22 in the half. "We've dug a pretty good hole for ourselves," Agbai said.

DREXEL STAR Damion Lee missed practice on Thursday and his status for Saturday's game at James Madison is uncertain. Lee, the Dragons' leading scorer at 18.1 points per game, missed Tuesday's overtime loss to Northeastern with a bone bruise in his right knee. Drexel lost super-sub Chris Fouch in November to a broken ankle. The Dragons are 5-10 and 1-2 in the Colonial Athletic Association. Their game against JMU (8-8, 2-1) is at 4 o'clock and will be televised nationally on NBCSN.

CHRIS FOUCH, Drexel's leading scorer, has been lost for the basketball season with a broken ankle. Fouch, a fifth-year senior guard averaging 16.7 points this season, sustained a fractured right ankle early in the second half of Saturday's 61-59 victory over Penn at the Palestra. He is expected to undergo surgery later this week. As an instant-offense scorer off the bench, Fouch has collected 1,194 points during his Drexel career. He is 12-for-25 from three-point range this season.

The Drexel men's basketball team took a hit Monday with the announcement that junior guard Damion Lee will miss the remainder of the season because of a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee. Lee was hurt Wednesday early in the second half of the Dragons' 66-62 loss to fourth-ranked Arizona in the semifinals of the NIT Season Tip-Off at Madison Square Garden. He was third in the Colonial Athletic Association in scoring as a sophomore with 17.1 points per game and is just 40 points shy of 1,000 in his career.

Drexel guard Chris Fouch will miss the rest of the season with a broken right ankle, an athletic department spokesman said Monday night. A fifth-year senior, Fouch was hurt in the second half of Saturday's 61-59 victory over Penn at the Palestra. He is expected to undergo surgery this week. The loss is a costly one for the Dragons (1-2). Fouch was Drexel's leading scorer at 16.7 points per game. He averaged 14.9 points as a sophomore and 10.8 as a junior. Fouch missed the 2008-09 campaign with a knee injury but was the Colonial Athletic Association rookie of the year in the following season.

VILLANOVA finished 6-5 last season, despite losing Walter Payton Award-winning quarterback John Robertson early and most of their running backs by November. If the Wildcats had gone 7-4, they probably would have made the NCAA playoffs. The wounds were mostly self-inflected. The Wildcats had a fumble returned for a length-of-the-field touchdown against them in an 11-point September home loss to Penn. They gave up three non-offensive touchdowns in a season-ending, nine-point loss at James Madison, when they still had a chance to earn a share of the Colonial Athletic Association title.

WHAT WENT down Friday in Louisville is at the heart of what is wrong with college sports. And it is not that a former Louisville basketball staffer apparently arranged for strippers to appear at parties in a dorm and some money changed hands. We are talking high school- and college-age men hanging with women late at night. Is this really an outrage? Here is the outrage: Louisville announced an immediate postseason ban. Why not just wait to get all the facts and see how this plays out?

BRUISER FLINT is not frustrated. A little disappointed, but not full-blown frustrated. He's seen it before. His team looks solid in stretches and then, just like that, usually at key moments, his team self-destructs. Thursday night, it happened again. Flint's Drexel Dragons held a three-point lead with 6 minutes, 38 seconds left in regulation. But they allowed Towson to go on a 14-4 run - shots not falling, passes not connecting, foul shots missed - en route to a 77-70 Colonial Athletic Association loss at the Daskalakis Athletic Center.

Villanova coach Andy Talley said before last week's 28-21 loss to Towson that the game was a must-win. Now, with the prospect of losing their fourth game in the last five, Talley makes the situation sound dire but not hopeless. "I think the running-the-table thing, we have the potential to do that because we have a great defense," Talley earlier this week. "Last week they were brilliant. But to have an offensive cast that can't support them is frustrating. " The Wildcats (3-4, 2-2 Colonial Athletic Association)

Villanova has faced some tough running attacks this season, with varying degrees of success. The Wildcats limited Fordham's dynamic Chase Edmunds to 74 yards on 16 carries in a 14-7 victory in the Bronx. They hemorrhaged 205 yards on the ground to Delaware's multi-back attack but held on to win, 28-21; and they had no answer for William and Mary's Kendell Anderson, the Colonial Athletic Association's rushing leader, who gained 149 of the Tribe's 199 yards in a 38-16 rout of 'Nova.

When Villanova faces Albany on Saturday, more than a month will have passed since the Wildcats have played a game outside the Philadelphia area. And that, according to coach Andy Talley, is a good thing. "I like the fact that we'll get out of Villanova, get on the road and change the scenery to see if we can get this team over the hump," Talley said of the No. 25 Wildcats (2-3, 1-1 Colonial Athletic Association). Losers of two in a row at home for the first time since 2012, they have disappointed Talley in a number of ways.

VILLANOVA-DELAWARE. For the longest time now, you really haven't had to say much more. The teams, separated by some 45 miles, have played each other every year since 1988. For the past 13 seasons, it's been the last game on the schedule. More often than not, it's meant something significant to one of them or even both. If, for whatever reasons, it didn't, it was still Villanova-Delaware. Which was more than sufficient, just because. This time they're meeting in Week 3, in their Colonial Athletic Association opener, because of a quirk in the schedule.

BALTIMORE - The conundrum that exists for Villanova coach Andy Talley this season is attempting to build on the Wildcats' success of 2014 while keeping all-American quarterback John Robertson in one piece. Robertson won the Walter Payton Award last season as the nation's top player in the Football Championship Subdivision after averaging 301.8 yards of total offense and accounting for 46 touchdowns, 35 through the air. But he missed the Cats' second-round playoff game because of a concussion suffered the week before, and his team lost to Sam Houston State to finish the season 11-3.

PLAYERS OF THE WEEKEND National - Freshman Nick Chubb, subbing for the suspended Todd Gurley, rushed for 143 yards on 38 carries as Georgia won at Missouri, 34-0, in a game that probably decided the SEC East.

It's the most points allowed by Lyco since 1949.
