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.

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. Local - Delaware Valley's Aaron Wilmer threw for five touchdowns and ran for another as the Aggies (5-0, 4-0 Middle Atlantic Conference), ranked 24th in Division III, beat No. 23 Lycoming (5-1, 4-1) at home, 52-42. It's the most points allowed by Lyco since 1949.

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.

Villanova coach Andy Talley is very clear about what Saturday's game at conference foe Maine represents. "It's a trap game," Talley said. "Without question, and that's exactly what I explained that we are up against. You are going to have to travel and play under adverse conditions against a team that is on the rise. There is going to be a lot of adversity. We'll have to show that we are able to handle it again. " On paper it might not appear that way. The Wildcats (3-1, 1-0 Colonial Athletic Association)

IT'S NO secret that junior quarterback John Robertson is the key to Villanova's success. His coaches and teammates know it, and they'll tell you so. The rest of the Colonial Athletic Association knows it, which is why Robertson was voted the conference's preseason offensive player of the year. And even some Wildcats fans who hold basketball Saturdays as more sacrosanct than football Saturdays probably know it, too. But a great quarterback needs a great offensive line to be at his best.

BALTIMORE - Pressure? Yo, when you're the quarterback for Villanova, which has always been known for moving the football, hefty expectations are pretty much part of the deal. To the surprise of nobody, fourth-year Wildcat junior John Robertson was named the Colonial Athletic Association's Preseason Offensive Player of the Year at the annual CAA media day at M&T Bank Stadium. But as Villanova found out a year ago, projections mean absolutely zilch once you start playing. The Wildcats, the pick to win the league, started fifth in the national polls last season.

Although it has never hit the local sports radar the way it did this spring with its first NCAA tournament run, the Drexel men's lacrosse program has been playing in West Philadelphia for 72 seasons. This season, however, which ended Sunday in the tournament quarterfinals, when heavily favored Denver ran off eight unanswered goals on the way to a 15-6 victory, was replete with firsts for the Dragons. Drexel (13-5) matched its season high in victories and won the Colonial Athletic Association tournament for the first time.

Nick Saputo isn't known for his scoring, but the Drexel junior is adept at faceoffs. In the biggest game of his college career, he excelled at both. Saputo entered Sunday's game with three goals, but he added three in the first half and was a faceoff force in leading Drexel to a 16-11 win over fourth-seeded Penn in a first-round NCAA men's lacrosse tournament game at Franklin Field. This was the first NCAA tournament game for the Dragons (13-4), the Colonial Athletic Association tourney champions, who will face fifth-seeded Denver in Sunday's quarterfinal at 2:30 p.m. at the University of Delaware.
