The Dragons, who were up by 15 points at intermission, had a 47-29 lead with 9 minutes, 17 seconds remaining.

If Drexel played Georgia State last night the same way it played during its five-game winning streak, the Dragons were expected to win. Drexel had problems shooting, but it still prevailed, 64-47, at the Daskalakis Athletic Center. The Dragons (11-8, 7-3 Colonial Athletic Association) shot only 30 percent from the field. They didn't score a field goal after Gerald Colds' three-pointer with 6 minutes, 19 seconds remaining gave them a 54-33 advantage. But down the stretch, Drexel shot 10-for-10 from the free throw line (21 of 24 for the game)

In the first 11 minutes after tip-off. And for a while, after the relentless Marvin O'Connor willed St. Joe's back into a wildly unpredictable game against Georgia State, grimacing with just about every step he took because of a jammed left toe, it looked as if the Hawks were going to score an unforgettable comeback victory.

A season ago, Scott Brooks was the rookie who had defeated the odds, caught someone's eyes and earned an NBA uniform. This year, the lucky Sixers rookie is Lanard Copeland, an undrafted free agent from Georgia State who used an exceptional showing in the Southern California Summer Pro League to attract the Sixers. "This is unbelievable," Copeland said before the Sixers opened their 1989-90 season against the Milwaukee Bucks at the Spectrum last night. "It's like a dream come true.
