CHARLESTON, S.C. - Poor weather and the resultant traveling logistics resulted in a 12-hour bus ride for the Drexel basketball team before it could even take the court against the College of Charleston Cougars. Fortunately for the Dragons, both teams played like they had just stepped off the bus and that kept things close before the Cougars gutted out a 47-46 victory at TD Arena. "The bus ride going back is going to be a whole lot worse than the bus ride down here," said Drexel coach Bruiser Flint.

DREXEL JUNIOR forward Kazembe Abif will miss the rest of the season after breaking his left hand in practice. The school said he was hurt Thurday and will have surgery next week. Abif missed five games in January with a sprained knee, but returned to the staring lineup on Jan. 25 against William & Mary. He scored a career-high 16 points and added eight rebounds in Saturday's 75-72 loss at Towson. Abif is second on the team with 6.6 rebounds and scored 7.2 points per game. Drexel already was playing without star guard Damion Lee, who was lost for the season with a knee injury suffered Nov. 27 against Arizona in the semifinals of the NIT Season Tip-Off at New York's Madison Square Garden.

Drexel coach Bruiser Flint had a message for his senior guard Frantz Massenat at halftime against North Carolina-Wilmington on Monday night. According to Flint, it was time for Massenat, who entered the contest averaging 17.9 points per game, to get out of "point guard mode. " "We're not going to win if you take one shot in the half," Flint told a scoreless Massenat after the senior recorded just a single shot in the first 20 minutes. Thanks to Massenat's 13 second-half points - and major contributions from Chris Fouch and Tavon Allen - Drexel knocked off UNCW, 61-50, at the Daskalakis Athletic Center.

HE IS OUT EARLY for warmups with his teammates, is right there during layup lines and sits dutifully at the end of the bench during the games, supportive, believing, hoping for the best. Damion Lee is an optimist. This season, he was certain, was going to be Drexel's time, a Colonial Athletic Association championship, an NCAA Tournament appearance and, who knows, maybe even the program's second NCAA win. "I thought this was the year," Lee said a few minutes before Drexel played UNCW at the DAC last night.

TOWSON, Md. - The showdown between the teams picked to finish one-two in the Colonial Athletic Association came down to the simplest of tasks here Saturday evening in a physical game.

Flint noted that Towson (14-8, 5-2) hit 5 of 6 free throws during one late stretch while Drexel (11-10, 3-5)

Drexel (10-9) has more than stayed afloat despite a series of key injuries, including the loss of all-conference swingman Damion Lee to a season-ending knee injury in the fifth game. Seniors Chris Fouch and Frantz Massenat form one of the top backcourts in the Colonial Athletic Association, and Massenat has taken it upon himself to score even more. A first-team all-conference choice as a sophomore, Massenat earned second-team honors while averaging 14.7 points last season. This season he is averaging a career-high 17.2 points.
