Rashann London's first attempt to give an oral commitment to Drexel on Thursday resulted in a voice message. Dragons basketball coach Bruiser Flint was in a meeting. Roman Catholic's 6-foot-2 senior guard then dialed Drexel assistant and Roman alum Bobby Jordan. "I just told him I wanted to commit right now," London said. "And he was so happy. He was joking with me, saying I probably got him a raise. " London visited Drexel twice on unofficial visits and was surprised by how big the University City campus is. He is from Mount Airy and said staying close to home was a priority.

She became the second South Jersey player this season to commit to Drexel. In the fall, Paul VI defender Noel Niederkorn also made a commitment to Drexel. Kane and Niederkorn, who are teammates for the Medford Strikers, will be roommates at Drexel. "I originally had it narrowed down to Delaware and St. Joe's," Kane said yesterday.

There are many sides to Drexel coach James "Bruiser" Flint that are frequently displayed over the course of a single game, a practice, or certainly within 24 hours in the often turbulent world of college basketball. With Drexel hoping to earn its first NCAA tournament appearance since 1996, Flint has earned more exposure than usual this season. The 19-game winning streak, the 27-6 record, give the Dragons hope of getting one of Sunday's at-large bids, despite their 59-56 loss to Virginia Commonwealth in a pulsating Colonial Athletic Association tournament final Monday at the Richmond Coliseum.
