Looking to get back into the win column last night at the Daskalakis Athletic Center, Drexel's basketball team was tied with George Mason with six minutes left. That was as close as the Dragons got.

Drexel, which lost its sixth straight game, is 9-15 overall and 2-10 in the Colonial Athletic Association. With its seventh win in eight games, George Mason improved to 17-6 and 9-3, moving into a tie for second with William & Mary.

It was a festive occasion yesterday for the Drexel University community as well as University City. Drexel president Constantine Papadakis and Gen. Jessica L. Wright of the Pennsylvania National Guard signed a 50-year lease that gave the school the go-ahead to turn the Philadelphia Armory into a basketball arena and convocation center. The event was held at the armory, which is on 33d street, across the street and one block up from the 2,300-seat Daskalakis Athletic Center, where the Dragons' men's and women's teams now play.

Drexel just wouldn't go away. Beating College of Charleston to almost every loose ball and playing with dogged tenacity on defense despite an early six-point deficit, the Dragons remained patient and hung on for a big Colonial Athletic Association win, 61-54, Saturday at the Daskalakis Athletic Center. Drexel was 2-12 going into the contest, but the Dragons had dropped six of those games by seven points or fewer and had not won a game against a team outside the city limits this season.

IT IS never a positive when the number of coaches in suits outnumbers available bench players, 4-2. It is definitely not good when your opponent has more players (10) on its bench than you have players (seven). That was Drexel last night against Delaware. These endless injuries began with the starting power forward and point guard declared out for the season, continued as two rotation big men missed a combined 17 games and finally appeared to have tilted back in the right direction when the Dragons somehow won six straight.

Damion Lee missed a free throw inside the final minute of play, but no matter. The junior guard finished with 32 points and 13 rebounds and once again shot lights-out from the foul line, leading Drexel to an 85-76 victory over North Carolina-Wilmington on Saturday at the Daskalakis Athletic Center, giving the Dragons their first three-game winning streak of the season. Drexel (7-14, 5-5 Colonial Athletic Association) has won four of its last five games and five of eight since starting the season 2-11.

For much of the season, falling behind and playing poorly in the first half has been the kiss of death for injury-plagued Drexel. Until Wednesday. Behind a season-high 33 points from Damion Lee, Drexel rallied from a 12-point first-half deficit against conference leader Northeastern and upset the Huskies, 65-60, at the Daskalakis Athletic Center. The win gave the Dragons their second set of back-to-back victories this season. They improved to 6-14 overall and 4-5 in the Colonial Athletic Association.

It would have been impossible for Damion Lee to have the kind of performance he did on Sunday night in Drexel's sixth game last year. Lee sat out that game with a knee injury and ended up missing the rest of the season. He made up for it this time around. Lee scored 19 of his 22 points in the first half and the Dragons stunned Southern Mississippi, 59-36, at the Daskalakis Athletic Center. "I'm just glad to be back," said Lee, who has played in more games than he did all of last season.

Drexel took out some frustration on Saturday afternoon at the Daskalakis Athletic Center as the Dragons defeated Colgate, 59-51. Drexel (2-1) led the entire way. The win felt good for Drexel, which was coming off a 59-43 defeat at Princeton on Wednesday night. They also avenged a 65-60 loss at Colgate last season. Sarah Curran (Archbishop Carroll) led all scorers with 19 points, going 7 for 12 from the field and 4 for 4 at the line. Two other Archbishop Carroll grads were factors.

His team had its hands full with Drexel's Damion Lee, but St. Joseph's coach Phil Martelli couldn't have been happier for him. St. Joseph's beat Drexel, 52-49, in Monday's defensive struggle at the Daskalakis Athletic Center, but holding off Lee and the Dragons wasn't easy. Lee scored 23 points. He shot 6 for 18 but hit all nine of his foul shots and contributed seven rebounds in 37 exhausting minutes. The encouraging part was that Lee, a 6-foot-6 redshirt junior, showed no ill effects from the season-ending ACL tear that occurred in the fifth game last season, a 66-62 loss to Arizona at Madison Square Garden.

More than a quarter-century ago, U.S. squash little resembled the game played almost everywhere else. The courts here were narrower, the balls springier, the styles and strategies uniquely American. Then in the 1990s, the sport, whose U.S. roots run deep in Philadelphia, adopted international standards and America was forced to play catch-up. The subsequent transition, slow and costly, helps explain why at this week's 2014 U.S. Open, being contested at Drexel University's Daskalakis Athletic Center, no U.S. men or women reached the round of 16. While Egyptians, British and Malaysian players continue to dominate, a broadening of the once-clubby game's appeal here and a push by its U.S. leaders to identify and support young talent might soon lead to a new world order.
