Drexel guard Michael Anderson pictured Ogden, Utah, as being located in the middle of a desert somewhere. "It's not Long Beach, that's all I know," he said. Troy Stribling envisioned frigid temperatures, frozen lakes, "and mountains all around. " "I have no idea where it is," said John Rankin, Drexel's freshman center. "But I'll bet you it's cold, wherever it is. Isn't that where those Mormon people are? "All I know right now is people are probably saying, 'Louisville plays who?

This was the picture of frustration for the Drexel Dragons last night: Brian Holden drove the lane, then had to launch his layup over the outstretched hands of Temple's 6-foot-11 William Cunningham. Instead of the ball kissing off the shooter's box, it bounced awkwardly off the top of the glass because Holden had had to adjust so much. "We practiced against six guys this week to get a feel for their zone, but it seemed like they had more than six guys out there tonight," Holden said.

It was early in the game yesterday, and the Drexel Dragons were playing as if they were just taking a Sunday afternoon stroll. The Dragons trailed New Hampshire by five points with nearly seven minutes gone in a North Atlantic Conference game at the Physical Education Athletic Center. Then, Malik Rose seemed to get fed up with the lethargic play, and all of a sudden, the Dragons were on their way to a 90-72 victory. Rose, Drexel's 6-foot-7 strong-arm junior center, who later would score his 1,000th career point, led the Dragons on a 14-0 run that gave them a 22-13 advantage midway through the half.

This is the year of the Drexel Dragons in college basketball in the Philadelphia area. Sure there are other teams with more impressive records against tougher competition - most notably the Hawks of St. Joseph's with 25 wins and only 5 losses - but Drexel has done itself especially proud in winning its first East Coast Conference championship and a berth in the NCAA national championship tournament for the first time. The Dragons did it in impressive fashion, defeating Hofstra 80-76 in the ECC title game in Towson, Md., with some clutch shooting and rebounding in the final minutes.

When Frantz Massenat's three-pointer hit the rim in the waning seconds, the Drexel Dragons could only shrug. They had already seen 12 others just like it on Sunday afternoon. Drexel couldn't buy a clutch bucket - or a three-pointer - as the Dragons fell to Buffalo, 55-52, at the Daskalakis Athletic Center. Drexel shot just 1 for 14 from three-point range in the game and 0 for 7 in the second half. Coach Bruiser Flint wasn't upset with the shot selection, though. "It's not like we were forcing three-point shots," he said.
