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 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.

Garret Kerr has been among the best Division II basketball players in the country, but he added something to his glossy resumé Thursday - a giant-killing three-pointer against a Division I program. Kerr took a pass from teammate T-John Casiello and drilled a high-arching three from the right wing with 2.1 seconds left to give the University of the Sciences a 54-52 win over Drexel in a stunner at the Daskalakis Athletic Center. It was the first time the 6-foot-4 senior from Middle Township, N.J., and the son of former Flyers star Tim Kerr, played against a Division I team, and the first win by the Devils over Drexel in 10 games.

Dust off your high-school physics knowledge for a moment, and recall the difference between batteries and capacitors. The former can store a lot of energy but take a long time to charge, while capacitors have more limited storage but can be charged in seconds. Lately, engineers have been developing devices that combine the best attributes of both: so-called supercapacitors that charge quickly and have improved storage capacity - some of which have been in use for several years in China, in fast-charging public buses.

It would have been impossible for Damion Lee to have the kind of performance he did on Sunday night in Drexel's sixth game last year. Lee sat out that game with a knee injury and ended up missing the rest of the season. He made up for it this time around. Lee scored 19 of his 22 points in the first half and the Dragons stunned Southern Mississippi, 59-36, at the Daskalakis Athletic Center. "I'm just glad to be back," said Lee, who has played in more games than he did all of last season.

AFTER DROPPING four of its first five games this basketball season, against formidable opponents, and dealing with several injuries, Drexel needed a win. The Dragons have almost as many injured players on their bench (three) as healthy reserves (four). Since Southern Mississippi arrived at the Daskalakis Athletic Center yesterday carrying a 3-1 record and averaging 73.2 points per game, Drexel expected to have a stressful game. Wrong. The Golden Eagles must've left their hearts in Hattiesburg because Drexel rolled to a stress-free, 59-36 victory.

CHARLESTON, S.C. - Damion Lee scored 24 of his 28 points in the second half as Drexel overcame a 14-point deficit to defeat Cornell, 61-59, at the Charleston Classic on Sunday. "We kept battling after a tough start. We got some easy baskets as we were able to [get 10 turnovers] in the second half," said Drexel coach Bruiser Flint. Lee and the Dragons (1-4) shot just 18.2 percent in the opening half and trailed, 36-22, with 17 minutes to go. But Drexel followed with a 19-5 run over the next nine minutes to tie the game.

CHARLESTON, S.C. - One look at the box score told Drexel coach Bruiser Flint all he needed to know about the Dragons' 66-46 loss to Miami in the first round of the Charleston Classic yesterday. Drexel's leading scorer was Tavon Allen, who had 13 points. But he shot just 4-for-17 to them. Damion Lee, who is averaging a team-high 14.7 points, scored eight in the first half and was limited to no shots and one free throw in the final 20 minutes. "There are other guys on this team that have got to make plays," Flint said.

When Phil Martelli got his job as head basketball coach at St. Joseph's, the men in charge of the city's pro outfits were named Ray Rhodes, Jim Fregosi, John Lucas, and Terry Murray. It's been a while. The Sixers have had 11 coaches during Martelli's two-decade stint on Hawk Hill. (The Flyers a mere nine.) It's not just Martelli. Philadelphia's Division I college basketball coaches are on an unprecedented run in terms of the combined longevity of their jobs. Even the least tenured among them is pretty much at the national average for a stay at a school.
