Sydney Stipanovich became the 21st player in program history to reach 1,000 points, but the feat was somewhat tempered as Penn women (20-4, 9-1 Ivy League) fell to Cornell, 51-46, Friday night in Ithaca, N.Y. The loss ended an eight-game winning streak for the Quakers. Stipanovich finished the night with 16 points and eight rebounds.

Six days before Saturday's game against Hofstra, Drexel coach Bruiser Flint sat at the podium after the Dragons' fourth straight loss - a streak that reached five Thursday - and couldn't help but smile when asked about the inconsistency in the play of his leading scorer, senior Tavon Allen. Saturday evening, against a team tied atop the league standings, Allen showed what consistency might have looked like for this year's Dragons. Too bad his effort was wasted. Allen scored a career-high 33 points on the day he was honored before the game for becoming the 35th Drexel player to reach 1,000 points, and the Dragons let a lead slip away in a 70-64 loss at the Daskalakis Athletic Center.

HEMPSTEAD, N.Y. - For Drexel, getting off to a good start is half the battle. That's half as in first half. Thursday night, the Dragons struggled early on, which set the stage for a 69-61 loss to Hofstra at the Mack Sports Complex. Drexel (3-13, 1-4 Colonial Athletic) trailed 34-24 at intermission after shooting just 10-for-38 from the floor. It finished 25-for-70. The Dragons opened the second half with a 12-4 run and took a 56-54 lead after Sammy Mojica tipped in a missed three-pointer by Tavon Allen.

The Drexel Dragons have waited a long time to feel the thrill of victory in a regular-season college basketball game. To be exact, it had been 281 days since Bruiser Flint's squad prevailed at William and Mary in late February to halt a four-game losing streak at the end of their tumultuous, injury-ridden 2014-15 campaign. Roughly three-quarters of a year later, the Dragons got back in the victory column with a 66-53 win over City Six rival La Salle on Saturday at Tom Gola Arena, ending their six-game losing streak to start the season.

DOWN SIX points to visiting Hofstra with just over two minutes to play, La Salle's Jordan Price - the nation's fifth-leading scorer at 25 points per game - had that look in his eye; the look all great scorers have when they're in the zone. Price rejected a screen, took a step back and drained his sixth three of the game from the top of the key, prompting a timeout as the Pride clung to a three-point lead. When Hofstra's leading scorer, fifth-year senior Juan'ya Green, walked back to his bench, Pride coach Joe Mihalich smiled in Green's direction and offered some words of consolation to his best player.

A furious comeback was not enough to overcome a sluggish start Wednesday night as La Salle fell, 84-80, to visiting Hofstra, which earned coach Joe Mihalich his 300th win. Jordan Price led the Explorers with a career-high 37 points, including 24 in the second half, but the Explorers' supporting players couldn't muster enough offensive help. La Salle trailed, 50-33, with 17 minutes left before rallying. The Explorers (4-2) used a 10-2 run to get within 78-77, but Cleon Roberts missed a chance to tie the score, missing a free throw with 1 minute, 15 seconds remaining.

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.
