MID-FEBRUARY Monday nights at the Daskalakis Athletic Center were going to be special this season. It has not turned out that way. Still, in this off-the-rails journey, just about any win is a good win. Drexel found an opponent whose season went even worse than the Dragons', without the expectations. Four Hofstra players, including two starters, were charged with a series of dorm-room burglaries after their seventh game. All were suspended and have not played since. So there is always another side.

HEMPSTEAD, N.Y. - Before each Drexel men's basketball game, the team attempts half-court shots to wrap up its shootaround. On Wednesday, before the Dragons met Hofstra, the shooting ended prematurely when assistant coach Bobby Jordan sank his shot. That kept Frantz Massenat from getting his heave. "Good thing," the junior guard said. "Maybe I saved it. " Massenat connected on his lone half-court shot at the end of regulation and beat the buzzer to give Drexel a dramatic, 55-52 win over Hofstra at the Mack Sports Complex.

Four Hofstra basketball players have been charged with breaking into dormitories and making off with electronic items, credit cards and cash, police said Friday. Detectives accused the four of six burglaries between Oct. 4 and Nov. 5, but said there may be other thefts dating to the beginning of the semester. Nassau County Detective Lt. Raymond Cote said he expected publicity about the arrests to prompt more victims to come forward. One of the victims may have been the Pride's head coach, Mo Cassara, police said, adding that the investigation into that burglary was incomplete.
