IN THE END, Bruiser Flint said Thursday evening, the knot of his navy-blue tie loosened and askew, you've got to have some pride. Flint, long regarded as a defensive stalwart in a blue-collar city, didn't see nearly enough pride out of his downtrodden Drexel team in an 81-76 loss to visiting Elon (15-13, 6-9 Colonial Athletic Association). His Dragons (3-23, 1-14) bounced and swaggered to a 10-point lead in the first half on the back of five three-pointers. Senior Tavon Allen hit his shots, corner threes from each side.

CALL IT a winning day for top-ranked Duke - in more ways than one. First, the Blue Devils won the sweepstakes for one of the top recruits in the nation, and then they capped off the night with an easy win over visiting Elon. Jabari Parker, a 6-8 forward from Chicago's Simeon Career Academy who is ranked No. 2 among high school prospects, announced Thursday afternoon that he would attend Duke. He chose the Blue Devils over Michigan State, Florida, Stanford and BYU, and announced his decision live on ESPNU from school.

NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. - As Elon's furious comeback attempt nearly erased a 16-point Drexel lead during Monday's opening-round NIT Season Tip-Off matchup, Dragons junior guard Damion Lee lurked in the corner of the court. Sixth-year senior Chris Fouch led the Dragons with 22 points, but Lee made his mark on the contest, hitting a three-pointer from the right wing with just over four minutes left. That shot halted a 13-3 Elon run and sent the Dragons on their way to a 71-64 victory at the Louis Brown Athletic Center.

Jack Anton saw his Elon teammate stumble while driving to the hoop, so the freshman grabbed the loose ball, stepped behind the arc, and drilled an uncontested three-pointer. The closest Drexel players to him wore street clothes and walking boots and sported crutches at the end of the bench. Drexel was battered, 77-67, Saturday at the Daskalakis Athletic Center in the Phoenix' debut game in the Colonial Athletic Association, the league opener for both teams and the hobbled Dragons' sixth consecutive defeat.

It's one of the more debated moves, or non-moves, in hoops. You're up by three points, with hardly any time left. The ball belongs to the other guys. So, do you send someone to the foul line, where there's always a chance, albeit a slim one, that the strategy could blow up in your face and you somehow go down in regulation on an almost-impossible-to-pull-off four-point sequence? Or, do you allow them to get off some kind of a three-pointer that could send things into overtime? You'd be surprised how often coaches choose the second option.

BALTIMORE - Drexel freshman guard Terrell Allen grew up in nearby Upper Marlboro, Md., so he had plenty of family and friends in attendance here on Friday night in the first game of the Colonial Athletic Association tournament at Royal Farms Arena. "I had a lot of people come out. I tried to show them what I can do," said Allen, a product of famed DeMatha Catholic High in Hyattsville, Md. He did just that as Allen, named to the CAA All-Rookie team on Thursday, hit a leaning jumper with 25.1 seconds left in the contest to give No. 9 seed Drexel a 57-56 victory over No. 8 seed Elon.
