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.

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.
