For a few years, Tim Lanza led a double life: as a student at the Art Institute of Philadelphia, and a cook at Marigold Kitchen, West Philadelphia's laboratory of modernist cooking. By the time he'd worked his way up from garde-manger to sous chef, school felt redundant. "I was learning so much at Marigold: molecular gastronomy, gels and foams," he said. "Then, I'd be sitting in a class where we're learning how to make omelets correctly. " So, he dropped out. Then, he got a real education.

In a kitchen on Drexel University's campus in January, notable chef/mad scientist Shola Olunloyo stood before a rapt crowd of professionals and culinary students, extolling the uses of a blast chiller. He showed off its potential for juicing strawberries ("the only other way I know is with a centrifuge"), and transforming Brie ("Any cheese can now be grated. That's what temperature allows you to do. ") The demonstration was part of the Philly Chef Conference, which, in its second year, has become a locus for networking and continuing education in the industry.

For much of the season, falling behind and playing poorly in the first half has been the kiss of death for injury-plagued Drexel. Until Wednesday. Behind a season-high 33 points from Damion Lee, Drexel rallied from a 12-point first-half deficit against conference leader Northeastern and upset the Huskies, 65-60, at the Daskalakis Athletic Center. The win gave the Dragons their second set of back-to-back victories this season. They improved to 6-14 overall and 4-5 in the Colonial Athletic Association.

DREXEL HADN'T had a winning streak since the end of November. Northeastern hadn't lost two in a row in 11 months. Wednesday night at the Daskalakis Athletic Center, both of those things came to an end. The Dragons obviously have been hurt big-time by injuries this season. But junior guard Damion Lee is one of the city's best. And sophomore forward Rodney Williams was back after sitting out seven games with a stress fracture in his foot. Four of the five previous meetings had either gone to overtime or were decided by two points.

Drexel coach Bruiser Flint's message for his best player never changes. "Offense is about confidence," Flint said. "Damion Lee, if he misses a few, he's going to keep on shooting. That's all about confidence. You've got to be ready to shoot the ball. " Lee was ready Saturday at Drexel's homecoming, pulling the trigger on a huge three-pointer that was the difference in the Dragons' 53-51 victory over the College of Charleston at the Daskalakis Athletic Center. Drexel trailed for almost the entire game, but Lee - who led the Dragons with a game-high 21 points - drilled the jumper with 17 seconds to play that put Drexel ahead, 52-51.

Applications for Drexel University's Class of 2019 have plunged by more than 50 percent from the previous year - but that's not a bad thing. In fact, officials at the West Philadelphia university say that's exactly what they were hoping for. The 27,424 applications are the result of a decision to hone an applicant pool that had ballooned to levels so unwieldy that some prospective students didn't even know what city Drexel was in.

HEMPSTEAD, N.Y. - Damion Lee put up 27 points and was a perfect 13 of 13 from the foul line, but it wasn't enough for Drexel, which fell to Hofstra, 86-58, on Wednesday night.
