He was told when the season began not to even bother coming out for the team. He decided to walk on, anyway. No one gave him much of a chance, least of all Drexel, which didn't even list him on its preseason roster. So yesterday was sweet redemption for Chris Kohles. The 6-foot-6 junior forward from Abington High picked up a crucial offensive rebound and scored what proved to be the winning basket as Drexel beat Northeastern, 71-64, to go 20-3 overall, 10-1 in the North Atlantic Conference.

Bucknell was many lengths back in second place and later triumphed in the women's varsity eight.

Delran's Christine Kasprzak, a three-year starting midfielder, will play her college soccer at Drexel. Kasprzak signed a letter of intent with Drexel on Thursday evening. She was a first-team all-Burlington County Liberty Division selection last fall, when the Bears went 17-3-2 and were ranked fifth in South Jersey by The Inquirer. An unsung midfielder also known for her defensive skill, Kasprzak scored six goals as a senior. Kasprzak said she received a partial academic and a partial soccer scholarship.

POINTS WERE always going to be a premium this season for Saint Joseph's, as the Hawks lost so much scoring from the Atlantic 10 champions. Hard to tell what was going to be up with Drexel's offense as two potential starters were on the bench last night, wearing matching walking boots. Legendary University of the Sciences coach Dave Pauley, seated right behind press row at Drexel's DAC, watched the first few minutes last night and declared "first team to 50 wins. " He was correct.

Drexel, which trailed by 38-35 at halftime, led by as much as 14 in the second half.

Many are experts at analyzing the form of others, but few are as astute about their own way of moving because rarely do they see themselves run. Drexel University's Running Clinic and Research Lab now offers a solution: a personalized running mechanics profile and gait analysis that will enable you to answer such momentous questions as: How's my form?

HARRISONBURG, Va. - Drexel standout Damion Lee, the league's top scorer, went up for a three-pointer along the baseline early in the first half. But former Paul VI star Ron Curry of James Madison flew through the air and blocked the ball out of bounds - a rarity against Lee - in the Colonial Athletic Association contest Wednesday night. By the end of the night, it was the shooting of Curry and his teammates that had Drexel coach Bruiser Flint shaking his head. The host Dukes connected on 15 of 18 shots from the field in the second half and held on for an 82-78 win at the JMU Convocation Center.

HARRIONBURG, Va. - Coach Bruiser Flint, in his 14th season at Drexel, has known James Madison counterpart Matt Brady for a long time. And it goes beyond the seven seasons Brady has been in the Colonial Athletic Association with the Dukes. Brady went to Paul VI High in Haddon Township, N.J., and is a former assistant coach at Saint Joseph's, where Flint graduated from in 1987. So the two were joking outside of the postgame press area here last night after JMU shot 83.3 percent in the second half and held on for a 82-78 win after the Dukes led by 12 with 2:29 to play.

The daydreaming Dragons were put in their place. Hofstra dominated the pace and the paint Sunday while stomping Drexel, 81-57, in a Colonial Athletic Association game at the Daskalakis Athletic Center, ending the Dragons' surprising six-game winning streak. Drexel (10-15, 8-6) had not lost since an 86-58 setback Jan. 21 at Hofstra, and had won 8 of 11 games since opening the season with a 2-11 record. The Dragons entered the day one game out of second place in the conference standings and two games out of first, but tumbled into a tie with Hofstra (17-10, 8-6)

DREXEL LEFT Long Island on Jan. 21 with a blowout, 86-58 loss to Hofstra, a 4-14 record and not much hope. Fast-forward to yesterday evening at the DAC, the same Dragons had won six straight and reclaimed what looked like a lost season. What better time for another game with Hofstra just to see how far they had come. Not far enough, it would appear. The Pride, with Philly guys Juan'ya Green (Carroll) and Ameen Tanksley (Imhotep), jumped Drexel at the start and never really let them into the game, attacking the basket relentlessly and just killing Dragon defenders off the dribble.

It wasn't that long ago that vultures were circling around the Drexel basketball team. It wasn't long ago that they were 2-11 and didn't have enough players to dress for a full practice. Back then, coach Bruiser Flint was begging anyone other than Damion Lee to shoot the ball. Things have changed some. The Dragons won their sixth straight game Tuesday night, building a 14-point lead in the first half that they never relinquished en route to a 53-49 Colonial Athletic Association victory over Towson at the Daskalakis Athletic Center.

STOP THE presses for the University City student newspapers! There's a winning streak in the neighborhood! With Penn flailing on the other side of 34th Street at 7-12 and Drexel starting the season 2-11, a streak seemed improbable. But the Dragons have done just that, ripping off six straight wins, including last night's 53-49 victory over Towson. All six wins have come against Colonial Athletic Conference opponents. In a conference devoid of a powerhouse, Drexel's hot streak positions the team to be in play for the CAA title.
