Hofstra dominated the final three minutes last night to take a 69-62 win over Drexel in an America East game. The Pride (5-1, 1-1) broke a 59-59 tie with 3 minutes, 33 seconds to play by staging an 8-1 run. Hofstra was 4 for 6 from the foul line in the final 49 seconds. "They really killed us on the offensive glass," said Drexel coach Steve Seymour. "They did a great job of getting the ball inside down the stretch and buried us on the free-throw line. "Defensively we didn't get shots in those last three minutes, and that's what cost us the game.

Drexel was hit by another bolt of Hofstra's comeback lightning last night, but this time the host Dragons survived with a 74-68 overtime victory in a North Atlantic Conference game. Earlier this month, a 23-0 second-half run by Hofstra erased Drexel's 22- point advantage. For that game, though, Dragons team leader Leslie Reiner was sidelined with an injury. So last night, with the home team (4-3, 1-1 NAC) holding a 16-point lead at 58-42 with 6 minutes, 12 seconds remaining, few Drexel fans worried about a replay.

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.

As the final seconds of Georgia Tech's consolation-game victory over Iona in the ECAC Holiday Festival counted down, a frustrated fan of the Gaels derisively shouted at the Yellow Jackets, "You guys lost to Hofstra. " Before this season is through, a lot of teams are apt to discover that losing to Hofstra is no disgrace. Just ask Penn, which fell to the revitalized Flying Dutchmen, 67-62, in the tournament's championship game yesterday afternoon in Madison Square Garden. "Hofstra is a real good basketball team," Penn coach Fran Dunphy said.

Drexel forward John Rankin had the right idea in the Dragons' first-round East Coast Conference tournament game against Hofstra. The Dutchmen have been flying high of late, and Rankin knew that Drexel had to draw first blood and shake Hofstra's confidence. Instead, it was Rankin who admittedly had a shaky start, as the Dragons fell to Butch van Breda Kolff's Flying Dutchmen, 79-73, at Towson State. Drexel's season is over and Hofstra plays top-seeded Bucknell in the first tournament semifinal game today, while Towson plays Lafayette in the other second-round contest.

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.

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.
