IT IS never a positive when the number of coaches in suits outnumbers available bench players, 4-2. It is definitely not good when your opponent has more players (10) on its bench than you have players (seven). That was Drexel last night against Delaware. These endless injuries began with the starting power forward and point guard declared out for the season, continued as two rotation big men missed a combined 17 games and finally appeared to have tilted back in the right direction when the Dragons somehow won six straight.

Runners are acutely aware of their bodies. They are constantly monitoring their aches and pains. They know about stride length, pronation, and strike style. Many are experts at analyzing the form of others, but few are as astute about their own way of moving because rarely do they see themselves run. Drexel University's Running Clinic and Research Lab now offers a solution: a personalized running mechanics profile and gait analysis that will enable you to answer such momentous questions as: How's my form?

HARRISONBURG, Va. - Drexel standout Damion Lee, the league's top scorer, went up for a three-pointer along the baseline early in the first half. But former Paul VI star Ron Curry of James Madison flew through the air and blocked the ball out of bounds - a rarity against Lee - in the Colonial Athletic Association contest Wednesday night. By the end of the night, it was the shooting of Curry and his teammates that had Drexel coach Bruiser Flint shaking his head. The host Dukes connected on 15 of 18 shots from the field in the second half and held on for an 82-78 win at the JMU Convocation Center.

HARRIONBURG, Va. - Coach Bruiser Flint, in his 14th season at Drexel, has known James Madison counterpart Matt Brady for a long time. And it goes beyond the seven seasons Brady has been in the Colonial Athletic Association with the Dukes. Brady went to Paul VI High in Haddon Township, N.J., and is a former assistant coach at Saint Joseph's, where Flint graduated from in 1987. So the two were joking outside of the postgame press area here last night after JMU shot 83.3 percent in the second half and held on for a 82-78 win after the Dukes led by 12 with 2:29 to play.

DREXEL LEFT Long Island on Jan. 21 with a blowout, 86-58 loss to Hofstra, a 4-14 record and not much hope. Fast-forward to yesterday evening at the DAC, the same Dragons had won six straight and reclaimed what looked like a lost season. What better time for another game with Hofstra just to see how far they had come. Not far enough, it would appear. The Pride, with Philly guys Juan'ya Green (Carroll) and Ameen Tanksley (Imhotep), jumped Drexel at the start and never really let them into the game, attacking the basket relentlessly and just killing Dragon defenders off the dribble.

The daydreaming Dragons were put in their place. Hofstra dominated the pace and the paint Sunday while stomping Drexel, 81-57, in a Colonial Athletic Association game at the Daskalakis Athletic Center, ending the Dragons' surprising six-game winning streak. Drexel (10-15, 8-6) had not lost since an 86-58 setback Jan. 21 at Hofstra, and had won 8 of 11 games since opening the season with a 2-11 record. The Dragons entered the day one game out of second place in the conference standings and two games out of first, but tumbled into a tie with Hofstra (17-10, 8-6)

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.
