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.

There are many sides to Drexel coach James "Bruiser" Flint that are frequently displayed over the course of a single game, a practice, or certainly within 24 hours in the often turbulent world of college basketball. With Drexel hoping to earn its first NCAA tournament appearance since 1996, Flint has earned more exposure than usual this season. The 19-game winning streak, the 27-6 record, give the Dragons hope of getting one of Sunday's at-large bids, despite their 59-56 loss to Virginia Commonwealth in a pulsating Colonial Athletic Association tournament final Monday at the Richmond Coliseum.

Drexel's unbeaten varsity eight won its third race of the season at yesterday's sixth annual La Salle University Invitational Regatta. Boats from 22 schools participated on the Cooper River in Camden County Park. Drexel, coached by Steve Orova and victorious over George Washington and St. Joseph's in previous regattas, stroked powerfully over the 2,000-meter course to win in 6 minutes, 12.1 seconds, in a cold, sharp crosswind. 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.

Drexel will travel to Bradley on Feb. 20, during the NCAA's Bracketbuster Weekend. The game, scheduled for 7 p.m., is considered an official Bracketbuster contest since it will not be televised. The event provides programs from 14 participating conferences, a chance to face top nonconference opponents about three weeks before Selection Sunday. Drexel and Bradley will have to win their respective conference tournaments to reach the NCAA tournament. Drexel is 13-11, while Bradley is 11-11.

In their final game wearing a Drexel uniform, Kamile Nacickaite and Tyler Hale finished with 11 points apiece, but the Dragons lost, 65-43, to Syracuse in second-round women's NIT action last night at the Daskalaskis Athletic Center. Drexel kept it tight in the first half and trailed, 44-41, with 6:18 to play before the Orange opened an insurmountable 21-2 run. Syracuse (20-14) was led by a double-double from Kayla Alexander (16 points, 11 rebounds). Drexel finished 19-14, its best record since the 2008-09 season.

Tim Whitworth led Drexel to an 80-76 victory over William and Mary in a seesaw Colonial Athletic Association game last night. Whitworth, a graduate of Chestnut Hill Academy, scored 22 of his 30 points in the second half. That included a three-pointer that broke a 74-74 tie with 29 seconds left. Drexel (8-6, 3-2 Colonial) and William and Mary (4-11, 1-5) followed a roundabout route to that tie. William and Mary had led by as much as 11 in the first half. Drexel, which trailed by 38-35 at halftime, led by as much as 14 in the second half.

Delsea forward Kate Kane, considered among the fastest soccer players in South Jersey, has signed with Drexel. Kane earned a partial academic and soccer scholarship. She became the second South Jersey player this season to commit to Drexel. In the fall, Paul VI defender Noel Niederkorn also made a commitment to Drexel. Kane and Niederkorn, who are teammates for the Medford Strikers, will be roommates at Drexel. "I originally had it narrowed down to Delaware and St. Joe's," Kane said yesterday.

Moments after the crepe batter started bubbling and the potatos were being peeled, Nazir Hanible's Friday morning took a turn for the worse. As the 19-year-old aspiring chef reached across the counter to start slicing and dicing his ingredients, the tip of his left index finger met the edge of a very sharp kitchen knife. He had to stop mid-stride to wash the wound and put on a bandage. Minutes later, Hanible was back in the thick of things, standing shoulder to shoulder with 18 other high school chefs who spent the morning at Drexel University, chopping, stirring, whisking, and pouring, each in the hope of scoring a big-time scholarship to culinary school.

He would change very little. John Yoo, the former Justice Department lawyer and Philadelphia native who laid the legal groundwork for President George W. Bush's administration to use waterboarding and other harsh interrogation techniques, told faculty and students at Drexel University law school Thursday that he had correctly interpreted the law. And that he would do it again. "I do stand by the line that we drew," Yoo said. Yoo came to the law school for an hour-long exchange with Harvey Rishikof, a former legal counsel to the FBI who teaches national security law at Drexel.

A DECADE later, America's post-9/11 descent into torture is still an open wound for many - as folks are finding out this week at Drexel University Law School. A Philadelphia lawyers' group is ripping the law school for hosting a talk this afternoon by John Yoo, the ex-Justice Department lawyer who crafted the legal justification for the Bush administration's use of waterboarding and other torture tactics on terrorism suspects. The National Lawyers Guild called Yoo's slated appearance "deplorable," adding that his legal advice had sparked "negative repercussions in American foreign relations that we are still dealing with a dozen years later.

In Philadelphia, Drexel University's president, John A. Fry, 53, is known as one of the chief architects of a revitalization of West Philadelphia in a program developed while he held the top nonacademic post at the University of Pennsylvania from 1995 to 2002. These days, he's trying to pull off the same transformation in three neighborhoods around Drexel. He also has grand plans to cap the Amtrak and SEPTA rail yards near 30th Street Station, creating 80 to 90 acres of developable space in the heart of what he's calling the "Innovation Neighborhood.

PHILADELPHIA A Drexel University engineering sophomore was killed earlier this month by the same strain of bacterium that caused a meningitis outbreak at Princeton University last year, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has confirmed. The Drexel student, identified by the university as sophomore Stephanie Ross, had been in close contact with Princeton students who had come to Philadelphia for a party about a week before she got sick. She died March 10 after her housemates at Phi Mu sorority found her unresponsive in her room, according to a Drexel statement.

THE DEATH OF a Drexel University student Monday could be the result of meningitis, officials said yesterday. Stephanie Ross, a sophomore mechanical engineering major and member of the Phi Mu (Beta Tau) sorority, was found unresponsive by her housemates on Monday at the sorority house and was transported to Penn Presbyterian Medical Center, officials said. Although the cause of death has not yet been determined, the university said it is treating it as a suspected case of meningitis and is working with the Philadelphia Health Department to take all necessary precautions.

And you thought video games were a big part of your child's life. A new game from Drexel University computer scientists will be much bigger, at least physically. At 7 p.m. April 4, the team plans to run a giant version of the classic game Tetris on both sides of the glass-encased, 29-story Cira Centre. If it works - and the group has tested a one-sided version that uses the building's vivid LED lights - the effort would break Drexel's own record for the world's largest video game.

IF SELECTION SUNDAY was yesterday, Villanova almost certainly would have been the No. 1 seed in the East. When the preseason Associated Press poll came out, the Wildcats had zero votes. After beating Georgetown, 77-59, Saturday at the Wells Fargo Center, Villanova completed one of the best regular seasons in city basketball history, going 28-3 and 16-2 in the Big East, sweeping the Hoyas for the first time in the Big East era while also beating them by the largest margin in that time.
