It wasn't that long ago that vultures were circling around the Drexel basketball team. It wasn't long ago that they were 2-11 and didn't have enough players to dress for a full practice. Back then, coach Bruiser Flint was begging anyone other than Damion Lee to shoot the ball. Things have changed some. The Dragons won their sixth straight game Tuesday night, building a 14-point lead in the first half that they never relinquished en route to a 53-49 Colonial Athletic Association victory over Towson at the Daskalakis Athletic Center.

Drexel University is joining the war on hackers. The university was named Tuesday as one of six institutions nationwide that will train the next generation of cyber security professionals, under a partnership with the Army Reserve. The University of Washington, George Mason University, the University of Texas at San Antonio, Norwich University, and the University of Colorado, Colorado Springs, are the other centers. "The goal of the program is to train and educate Army Reserve soldiers to be elite cyber security professionals through classroom work and field experience," said Lt. Gen. Jeffrey Talley, chief of the Reserve.

STOP THE presses for the University City student newspapers! There's a winning streak in the neighborhood! With Penn flailing on the other side of 34th Street at 7-12 and Drexel starting the season 2-11, a streak seemed improbable. But the Dragons have done just that, ripping off six straight wins, including last night's 53-49 victory over Towson. All six wins have come against Colonial Athletic Conference opponents. In a conference devoid of a powerhouse, Drexel's hot streak positions the team to be in play for the CAA title.

Drexel University College of Medicine said Thursday that it will launch the Drexel Neurosciences Institute next month. The move intensifies competition with the Jefferson Neuroscience Network. Leading the new institute will be Erol Veznedaroglu, who was a top neurosurgeon at Jefferson before leaving in 2008 to build a large neurosciences program at Capital Health, which has hospitals in Trenton and Hopewell, N.J. The Drexel Neurosciences Institute is part of an effort by Veznedaroglu to establish what he called a different kind of network that benefits from university research, but is not shackled to a university hospital.
