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.

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.

Using the transitive property, we can easily prove Division II University of the Sciences could have made the Final Four, if only the school were in Division I. The Sciences victory over Drexel is the key to the whole thing. Sorry, Villanova, Virginia, Duke, Wisconsin, and Gonzaga. Here's how it goes: Sciences vDrexel vNortheastern vSanta Clara vSan Diego vBYU vGonzaga. Sciences vDrexel vWilliam and Mary vRice vCharlotte vPenn State vRutgers vWisconsin.

BALTIMORE - Drexel controlled most of the first half in Friday night's matchup with College of Charleston, but the second half was a much different story. The injury-plagued Dragons, who dressed only seven players, held a five-point halftime lead but appeared to tire as the College of Charleston ended their season with a 56-48 victory in a first-round Colonial Athletic Association tournament game at Royal Farms Arena on Friday night. Seventh-seeded Drexel finished with an 11-19 record.

BALTIMORE -- Freddie Wilson knew the result as soon as he rose up. With 2 minutes, 48 seconds remaining on the game clock and the score tied, Wilson found himself wide open on the wing and attempted his ninth 3-pointer of the game. It missed everything. "As soon as I jumped I felt it," the senior guard said. "I didn't really get off my feet so I knew my legs were done. " After more than 37 minutes on the court, Wilson was gassed. And who could blame him? Wilson led the seventh-seeded Dragons with 17 points on the night but played every minute of the game.

BALTIMORE - Drexel guard Freddie Wilson got a wide-open three-point shot with just under three minutes left in Friday night's game against the College of Charleston. The Dragons needed the points because the game was tied, but Wilson's shot never reached the rim. That air ball symbolized Drexel's problems in the first-round Colonial Athletic Association tournament game. The Dragons dressed only seven players and, despite leading most of the game, tired badly late as Charleston rallied for a 56-48 victory at the Royal Farms Arena.

While Drexel spent most of the season trying to field a healthy roster from one game to the next, something interesting was going on at the top of the Colonial Athletic Association. It seemed that nobody wanted to win it. The CAA regular season ended last weekend in an unprecedented four-team tie for first place between William and Mary, North Carolina-Wilmington, Northeastern, and James Madison, all of whom finished 12-6 in the conference. By virtue of its 5-1 record against the others, William and Mary received the top seed in the tournament.

Unveiled in 2009, Drexel's Sacramento, Calif., campus was supposed to be the first of five new locations in growing U.S. cities that would help the university expand its reach. And it was supposed to be the first step in a larger plan to open a 5,000-student undergraduate campus on a large swath of land in nearby Placer County. That's what the late Drexel president Constantine "Taki" Papadakis envisioned. But no other centers have opened, and on Thursday, Drexel said it was pulling out of California after a "comprehensive evaluation" by its board of trustees.

Opponents of the proposed 110-mile PennEast Pipeline on Wednesday criticized Drexel University's participation in a study that estimates the natural gas project will support 12,000 jobs and have a $1.6 billion economic impact through a construction phase ending in 2017. The activists questioned Drexel's participation in the study because Lon Greenberg, former chief executive of UGI Inc., which is building the pipeline, serves on a 37-member advisory board to the university's LeBow School of Business Corporate Governance Center.

Drexel men's lacrosse coach Brian Voelker is quick to make the point about his winless team. "I think people really don't understand that this time last year we were 1-2," Voelker said last Friday of the defending Colonial Athletic Association champs. "Here we are 0-3, but I think the biggest difference is we haven't played that great. We're trying to get guys to figure this thing out. " Not long after he said that, Drexel, playing its third top 15 team this season, was drubbed by No. 10 Maryland, 12-3, to fall to 0-4. It has been a rocky start so far for the Dragons.

WILLIAMSBURG, Va. - Drexel basketball coach Bruiser Flint admitted that his team is deficient when it comes to perimeter shooting. Freddie Wilson and Tavon Allen showed otherwise Saturday afternoon, leading the Dragons to an 80-66 victory over William and Mary at Kaplan Arena. Wilson scored a career-high 24 points, and Allen chipped in 22 as Drexel (11-18, 9-9) snapped a four-game losing streak. The Dragons shot 49 percent from the field and were 11 of 21 from three-point range as they spoiled the Tribe's hopes of clinching the regular-season conference title.

On one end of the floor, Delaware ran a smooth layup line with a roster that went 14 deep. Without delay, there was a shooter and a teammate to grab a rebound at all times. Drexel, on the other end, had a shooter, maybe two, while the rest of the seven-man roster looked for a ball. Damion Lee, the leading scorer in the Colonial Athletic Association, was out after he fractured his hand in a loss at Northeastern on Saturday. Major Canady and Sooren Derboghosian were already gone, and Sammy Mojica slipped on a wet spot Wednesday at practice and was out. Drexel was undermanned, and it showed in a 58-44 home loss against Delaware in a crucial conference matchup.
