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.

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.

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.

Christopher Crawford began the final round of the Patterson Cup on Friday looking at a 6-shot deficit and harboring no thoughts of clutching a big and shiny winner's trophy at the end of the day. "I was so far behind - not that I was out of it - but 6 shots behind is a lot," said Crawford, 21, who is entering his senior year at Drexel. "Winning really wasn't on my mind at the start of the day. I just wanted to come out and shoot a good round. But it was nice to be under the radar; I kind of enjoyed that.

IN MARCH, James Harris left a comment on Jasmine Wright's Facebook page, words forever branded on her public, electronic memorial. "All in," he posted, with a picture of a dozen roses that said: "For you. " Under other circumstances, it would have been an innocuous gesture. But with yesterday's news, it twists into something ominous and morbid. Harris, a/k/a James Camp, has been charged with allegedly raping and murdering Wright, 27, on July 15 inside her apartment in the West Philly building where he had been the maintenance man, police said.

IT WAS ALMOST by accident that Tyshawn Toney reconnected with Jasmine Wright, an old friend from Penn State University. A few weeks ago, a photo of her at Drexel University popped up on his Facebook. Toney, who works at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, had no idea that Wright was in Philly completing her master's in public health. Toney, 31, laughed last night as he recalled their first meeting in a late-night visit to a Sheetz convenience store in State College. "She was always the quiet one," Toney said as dusk fell at Drexel Park, on Baring Street near 32nd in Powelton, where about 10 of Wright's friends gathered to honor her memory.

Philadelphia police said Saturday that a man was being questioned by investigators as a person of interest in connection with the death of a recent Drexel University graduate. Jasmine Wright, 27, was strangled inside her West Philadelphia apartment last week, police said. After she was not heard from, Wright's family asked police to check the apartment. Police found no signs of forced entry when they entered the unit Thursday and discovered her body. Evidence has led investigators to believe that Wright may have known her assailant.

SOME PEOPLE stumble aimlessly through life, hoping to find purpose before their hourglass runs out of sand. Jasmine Wright wasn't one of them. "She had a promising future, she was definitely going to make a difference," said Wright's former roommate at Penn State University, who spoke with the Daily News last night on condition of anonymity. "It's beyond sad that her future got cut down so early. " At 27, Wright already had traveled the world in relentless pursuit of something simple, pure, noble - helping the less fortunate.

James Clark. Wright, who lived alone, was pronounced dead at the scene at 2:35 p.m. She was a 2015 graduate of Drexel University's School of Public Health, a Drexel spokeswoman said Thursday night.

"LIKE A PUNCH in the gut. " That's how Keith Hooks said he felt upon hearing that Jasmine Wright, 27, his kind and quiet neighbor, had been found brutally murdered in her apartment. "It's just sick," Hooks, 53, said last night, mere feet from the slain Drexel University grad's front door, directly beside his own. "She was professional and sweet," Hooks said. "She just went about her business and didn't bother anybody. "And she certainly didn't deserve this. " Wright's body was found about 2:30 p.m. inside her third-floor apartment on 50th Street near Locust in West Philly, Homicide Capt.
