THE UNIVERSITY of the Sciences' team bus didn't turn back into a pumpkin last night, as the players and coaches rode that victorious carriage back to 43rd Street after pulling off a Fairy Godmother-loving upset of Drexel at the Dragons' own gym. Garret Kerr scored 27 points, including the game-winning three-pointer with 2 seconds left, as USP (6-2) stunned the 2-5 Dragons, 54-52. USP is the first non-Division I school to knock off one of those dapper D-I programs on the road during this college basketball season.

Dust off your high-school physics knowledge for a moment, and recall the difference between batteries and capacitors. The former can store a lot of energy but take a long time to charge, while capacitors have more limited storage but can be charged in seconds. Lately, engineers have been developing devices that combine the best attributes of both: so-called supercapacitors that charge quickly and have improved storage capacity - some of which have been in use for several years in China, in fast-charging public buses.

It would have been impossible for Damion Lee to have the kind of performance he did on Sunday night in Drexel's sixth game last year. Lee sat out that game with a knee injury and ended up missing the rest of the season. He made up for it this time around. Lee scored 19 of his 22 points in the first half and the Dragons stunned Southern Mississippi, 59-36, at the Daskalakis Athletic Center. "I'm just glad to be back," said Lee, who has played in more games than he did all of last season.

AFTER DROPPING four of its first five games this basketball season, against formidable opponents, and dealing with several injuries, Drexel needed a win. The Dragons have almost as many injured players on their bench (three) as healthy reserves (four). Since Southern Mississippi arrived at the Daskalakis Athletic Center yesterday carrying a 3-1 record and averaging 73.2 points per game, Drexel expected to have a stressful game. Wrong. The Golden Eagles must've left their hearts in Hattiesburg because Drexel rolled to a stress-free, 59-36 victory.

Drexel took out some frustration on Saturday afternoon at the Daskalakis Athletic Center as the Dragons defeated Colgate, 59-51. Drexel (2-1) led the entire way. The win felt good for Drexel, which was coming off a 59-43 defeat at Princeton on Wednesday night. They also avenged a 65-60 loss at Colgate last season. Sarah Curran (Archbishop Carroll) led all scorers with 19 points, going 7 for 12 from the field and 4 for 4 at the line. Two other Archbishop Carroll grads were factors.

CHARLESTON, S.C. - Damion Lee scored 24 of his 28 points in the second half as Drexel overcame a 14-point deficit to defeat Cornell, 61-59, at the Charleston Classic on Sunday. "We kept battling after a tough start. We got some easy baskets as we were able to [get 10 turnovers] in the second half," said Drexel coach Bruiser Flint. Lee and the Dragons (1-4) shot just 18.2 percent in the opening half and trailed, 36-22, with 17 minutes to go. But Drexel followed with a 19-5 run over the next nine minutes to tie the game.

CHARLESTON, S.C. - One look at the box score told Drexel coach Bruiser Flint all he needed to know about the Dragons' 66-46 loss to Miami in the first round of the Charleston Classic yesterday. Drexel's leading scorer was Tavon Allen, who had 13 points. But he shot just 4-for-17 to them. Damion Lee, who is averaging a team-high 14.7 points, scored eight in the first half and was limited to no shots and one free throw in the final 20 minutes. "There are other guys on this team that have got to make plays," Flint said.

When Phil Martelli got his job as head basketball coach at St. Joseph's, the men in charge of the city's pro outfits were named Ray Rhodes, Jim Fregosi, John Lucas, and Terry Murray. It's been a while. The Sixers have had 11 coaches during Martelli's two-decade stint on Hawk Hill. (The Flyers a mere nine.) It's not just Martelli. Philadelphia's Division I college basketball coaches are on an unprecedented run in terms of the combined longevity of their jobs. Even the least tenured among them is pretty much at the national average for a stay at a school.

With a young team, very little is expected to come easily for St. Joseph's. After the Hawks lost by a point in their opener Friday to visiting Fairleigh Dickinson, they played another nail-biter Monday night, this time escaping with a 52-49 win over Drexel at the Daskalakis Athletic Center. The outcome wasn't decided until Drexel's Damion Lee missed a last-second three-pointer. "I knew I was pretty far out and once it left my hand I thought it was good," said Lee, who scored a game-high 23 points and looked strong after suffering a season-ending knee injury in the fifth game last year.

His team had its hands full with Drexel's Damion Lee, but St. Joseph's coach Phil Martelli couldn't have been happier for him. St. Joseph's beat Drexel, 52-49, in Monday's defensive struggle at the Daskalakis Athletic Center, but holding off Lee and the Dragons wasn't easy. Lee scored 23 points. He shot 6 for 18 but hit all nine of his foul shots and contributed seven rebounds in 37 exhausting minutes. The encouraging part was that Lee, a 6-foot-6 redshirt junior, showed no ill effects from the season-ending ACL tear that occurred in the fifth game last season, a 66-62 loss to Arizona at Madison Square Garden.
