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.

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.

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.

Six days before Saturday's game against Hofstra, Drexel coach Bruiser Flint sat at the podium after the Dragons' fourth straight loss - a streak that reached five Thursday - and couldn't help but smile when asked about the inconsistency in the play of his leading scorer, senior Tavon Allen. Saturday evening, against a team tied atop the league standings, Allen showed what consistency might have looked like for this year's Dragons. Too bad his effort was wasted. Allen scored a career-high 33 points on the day he was honored before the game for becoming the 35th Drexel player to reach 1,000 points, and the Dragons let a lead slip away in a 70-64 loss at the Daskalakis Athletic Center.

The patient was one the medic recognized. She had been to his home more than a few times. He was a diabetic who often slipped into hypoglycemic shock, and his family called medics over once or twice a week. The medic - a veteran with 13 years on the job - and her partner, a trainee, found the patient passed out in the basement. As they treated him, he started to come to. And that's when he reached under his pillow and pulled out a gun. "I'm not going to the hospital," he told the stunned paramedics.

BRUISER FLINT is not frustrated. A little disappointed, but not full-blown frustrated. He's seen it before. His team looks solid in stretches and then, just like that, usually at key moments, his team self-destructs. Thursday night, it happened again. Flint's Drexel Dragons held a three-point lead with 6 minutes, 38 seconds left in regulation. But they allowed Towson to go on a 14-4 run - shots not falling, passes not connecting, foul shots missed - en route to a 77-70 Colonial Athletic Association loss at the Daskalakis Athletic Center.

WINTER STORM Jonas left the Daskalakis Athletic Center largely empty and relatively quiet for much of Sunday afternoon's game between Drexel and visiting North Carolina-Wilmington, which was originally slated for Saturday afternoon. It was plenty quiet enough for Drexel coach Bruiser Flint's voice to be heard. So when UNC-Wilmington guard Denzel Ingram hit back-to-back three-pointers over Dragons guard Tavon Allen, Flint's message to his senior leading scorer was heard loud and clear.

HEMPSTEAD, N.Y. - For Drexel, getting off to a good start is half the battle. That's half as in first half. Thursday night, the Dragons struggled early on, which set the stage for a 69-61 loss to Hofstra at the Mack Sports Complex. Drexel (3-13, 1-4 Colonial Athletic) trailed 34-24 at intermission after shooting just 10-for-38 from the floor. It finished 25-for-70. The Dragons opened the second half with a 12-4 run and took a 56-54 lead after Sammy Mojica tipped in a missed three-pointer by Tavon Allen.

You can believe Drexel hoop player Tavon Allen when he says he's happy for former teammate Damion Lee, who has been impressive for Louisville this season after leaving the Dragons. Saying he's happy for him, Allen isn't just saying the right thing, since the right thing for Allen would have been for Lee to stay next to him, nailing those jump shots on Market Street instead of all around the Atlantic Coast Conference. But Lee wasn't just a teammate, he's a friend. "We talk all the time," Allen said this week.

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.

The skeletal remains found last week in a Delaware County park were not those of a missing Drexel Hill woman, state police said Tuesday, quashing widespread speculation that had rattled the woman's family and friends. Using dental records, police said, investigators were able to determine that the remains discovered New Year's Day in Ridley Creek State Park were not those of Amanda De Guio, 25. "We are so relieved to hear this news," Nicole De Guio, Amanda's older sister, said in an email Tuesday.
