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.

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 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.

TWO YEARS AGO, the Colonial Athletic Association celebrated its second men's basketball team in the NCAA Final Four in recent years. First, George Mason in 2006, then Virginia Commonwealth in 2011. Now, both see the CAA in their rearview mirrors. George Mason is leaving after the spring sports season to compete in the Atlantic 10 Conference, which VCU joined in 2012. Mason's CAA exit will mean the Fairfax, Va., university will forfeit about $2.65 million in funds. Mason's spring sports teams will not be eligible for CAA championships.

TOWSON, Md. - Damion Lee was open to take a last-second shot and passed, which led to a turnover. Kazembe Abif tried to miss a free throw with 1.2 seconds left but made the shot, denying Drexel a chance to tie the game with a put-back in the final moment. Such was the bad luck for the Dragons on Saturday as Towson (16-13, 11-5 CAA) took a 12-point lead in the first half and held on to beat Drexel, 72-71, in a Colonial Athletic Association game. "This game sums up the whole season," said Drexel coach Bruiser Flint.
