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.

Rashann London's first attempt to give an oral commitment to Drexel on Thursday resulted in a voice message. Dragons basketball coach Bruiser Flint was in a meeting. Roman Catholic's 6-foot-2 senior guard then dialed Drexel assistant and Roman alum Bobby Jordan. "I just told him I wanted to commit right now," London said. "And he was so happy. He was joking with me, saying I probably got him a raise. " London visited Drexel twice on unofficial visits and was surprised by how big the University City campus is. He is from Mount Airy and said staying close to home was a priority.

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.

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.

NEWARK, Del. - Drexel has had some disappointing moments during this trying season, but none was more flat-out embarrassing than its 54-35 home loss to James Madison on Thursday. On Saturday, Drexel scored 35 points in the first half alone, built a 12-point lead late in the first half, and then held on to defeat Delaware, 66-62, at the Bob Carpenter Center. "When you hold a team to 54 points and lose by 20, that says a lot about the way you played," Dragons coach Bruiser Flint said about Thursday's game.

Drexel's injury list has grown so long that the Dragons had only eight healthy players available Thursday night for their 54-35 loss to James Madison. On the bright side, Bruiser Flint's funny bone still seems to be OK. "Did you all watch it?" the coach said, laughing, when asked what went wrong. "I know you all watched the game. The only thing is you don't have to watch it again like I do. " Drexel made just 24 percent of its shots from the floor and lost for the ninth time in 10 games.

A 9-0 DREXEL run to start last night's game against James Madison looked promising. The Dragons had lost eight of their last nine entering the contest and were hoping for their second Colonial Athletic Conference win of the year. After that, everything that could have gone wrong for Bruiser Flint's squad did, as the Dragons lost, 54-35. Drexel's offense went as cold as the wind chill in University City as the Dragons didn't make a field goal over the remaining 15:03 of the first half, and trailed 17-12 at halftime.

TOWSON, Md. - Drexel junior Damion Lee joked with Freddie Wilson after the game Thursday night, telling the reserve guard he could have scored 20 points against Towson. "He left some free throws out there," Lee said of Wilson, who made 8 of 12 shots from the foul line and ended with a career-high 14 points and three steals in 29 minutes. The fact that the Dragons could joke around was good news as Drexel beat Towson, 55-41, to snap a seven-game losing streak, the longest in Bruiser Flint's 14 years as head coach.

In his 14 seasons at the helm of the Drexel men's basketball team, Bruiser Flint has seen his share of battered and bruised players. Last season, when guard Damion Lee went down with a season-ending knee injury in the NIT Season Tip-Off against Arizona, it marked the third year in a row that the Dragons had lost a key player for the season with an injury. "But it's never been like this before, boom, boom, boom," Flint said. "We've been shorthanded before, but it's never been like this.
