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.

I TEXTED John Calipari not long after I heard that Drexel had told Bruiser Flint he was out as coach Monday morning. I asked if he wanted to talk about his longtime friend and colleague. The Kentucky coach got back to me Monday night, but I missed the call. He left a classic 80-second voice mail, an impassioned defense of Flint and a call to get rid of the graduate-transfer rule that allows players who have graduated with eligibility to go to another school without having to sit out a year.

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.

Roger Dennis, dean of the Thomas R. Kline School of Law of Drexel University, plans to retire in June of 2017, university provost M. Brian Blake announced in a letter to the faculty and staff on Wednesday. Dennis is the founding dean of the law school, which opened its doors in 2007 and he was instrumental in seeing it through the American Bar Association accreditation process, completed in 2011. Blake said Dennis agreed to stay while the university conducts a national search for his replacement.

Drexel professor André M. Carrington has been a longtime devotee of comic books, science fiction, and everything dorky. His first book, Speculative Blackness: The Future of Race in Science Fiction , is a thoughtful analysis of the genre's attempts to grapple with ethnicity. In it he ranges over delightfully vast tracts of fiction, from the Marvel comics empire to the fantasy world of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and the representations of black women from the British imperial diaspora.

The sounds of wood slamming against wood, of wheels sliding over a ramp, and of sudden crash landings echoed around the white walls of Drexel University's Pearlstein Gallery on Tuesday. Yet no one seemed alarmed. "They're shredding in there," said Ed Solego, a former pro-skateboarder-turned-skate-shop-owner-and-videographer. For the next eight weeks, the space will be transformed from a traditional art gallery into an interactive, pop-up skate park called Philly Radness, set against a projected backdrop that fluctuates in response to the skaters' movements and to the noises they make as they roll and clatter around the space.

ZACH SPIKER grew up a West Virginia basketball fan, watching the Mountaineers during their days in the Atlantic 10, dueling with Saint Joseph's and Temple. One of his first trips to Philadelphia led him to the 700 level at Veterans Stadium for an Eagles game against the Cowboys. He knows how this city operates, and how integral its sports teams are. "I think it's a great draw and a great attraction," Spiker said of the city's sports culture. "I think it attracted me to be a part of Philadelphia basketball.

Zach Spiker has his work cut out for him as Drexel's new men's basketball coach, but at least he comes to Philadelphia with some awfully impressive references. Spiker, the head coach at Army for seven seasons, was introduced Tuesday as the 26th basketball coach in Drexel history. The 39-year-old Spiker replaces Bruiser Flint, who was at Drexel for 15 seasons but went just 6-25 this season and 17-44 over the last two. There was no better reference than the one from Mike Krzyzewski.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. - Zach Spiker was in Chicago in the fall of 2009 recruiting for Cornell when the Army job suddenly opened up. Then-Big Red head coach Steve Donahue strongly recommended his assistant, who had been with him for five years and was critical in assembling the team that would go on to win its third straight Ivy League title and finish in the 2010 Sweet 16. "He was instrumental in our recruiting and our style of play," said Donahue, who...

Here in the U.S., a product developer is politely shooed out the door by a major video game company after proposing a game that helps people recover from a stroke or deal with their cerebral palsy, said health games innovator Pam Kato. In Britain, by contrast, "Serious Games" is a category now being pursued by hospitals and universities, funded with national health grants, earning positive publicity and wide software distribution. "When I saw that Coventry University even had a building named Serious Health Institute, I knew I was home," said the U.S.-born Kato, who now directs that institute.

Cristian Cocuzza was working the counter of his family's Powelton Village pizza shop last Sunday when a college-age customer stormed in holding his phone like it was toxic. Cristian did not need to ask him what was on the screen. He knew exactly what it was. It was the story. The horrible story that so many mistakenly thought had something to do with his family's business. "It no us!" Cristian told the customer, something he feels like he has said a thousand times this past week.
