With so many quality options on offense, Chris Fouch has played a supporting role for Drexel this season. After leading the Dragons in scoring last season, Fouch entered Saturday's game against Hofstra ranked fourth on the team. But the junior sharpshooter still can light it up when needed as he did against the Pride when Fouch paced the white-hot Dragons with 25 points in a 78-67 victory over Hofstra at the Daskalakis Athletic Center. It was the 13th straight win and 19th in 20 games for Drexel (21-5, 13-2 Colonial Athletic Association)

HEMPSTEAD, N.Y. - Hofstra bit at Drexel's heels and clawed back after trailing by as many as 10 points to make it a game in the second half Wednesday night. It seemed as if the Pride were on the way to their first Colonial Athletic Association win of the season. But the Dragons had other ideas, and held on for a 56-50 win at the Mack Sports Complex on Long Island. Drexel (13-5 overall, 5-2 CAA) has won five straight and 11 of its last 12 games. "We got lucky tonight," said Dragons coach Bruiser Flint.

HEMPSTEAD, N.Y. - Hofstra bit at Drexel's heals and clawed back after trailing by as much as 10 points to make it a game in the second half Wednesday night. It seemed as if the Pride was on the way to their first Colonial Athletic Association win of the season. The Dragons, however, had other ideas, and held on for a 56-50 win at the Mack Sports Complex on Long Island. Drexel (13-5 overall, 5-2 CAA) has won five straight and 11 of its last 12 games. Chris Fouch led the Dragons with 13 points, while Damion Lee added 11. Daryl McCoy scored six points and led both teams with 11 rebounds.

This is all Jaylen Bond wanted. However, going to a powerhouse that promises immediate playing time as a swingman took longer than expected. The recent Plymouth Whitemarsh graduate orally committed to the University of Texas Tuesday on his official visit to the Austin campus. That came five months after the 6-foot-7, 219-pounder backed out of his scholarship to Pittsburgh and flirted with playing next season at St. Thomas More, a prep school in Connecticut. But the 18-year-old ultimately decided there was no need to spend a season at prep school.

Jim Larranaga was talking about successful defensive basketball techniques. "When you play a team like Villanova, you know you have to defend the three, ball screens [and] dribble drives," Larranaga, the George Mason coach, said the other night. "If you're a team that's good at doing that, then you have a great chance. If you're not good at that, you're in for a long night. " How does George Mason perform these defensive chores? "It depends on the day," Larranaga said, chuckling.

Phil Martelli raised some eyebrows early last week when he said, almost in passing, that the best player for St. Joseph's was a young man who has yet to officially wear the Hawks' crimson and gray. He was speaking of Halil Kanacevic, who is sitting out this season after transferring from Hofstra following his freshman year. Kanacevic may be just what the Hawks need next season - a brawny body who plays with an edge. He is 6-foot-8, 252 pounds, and by all accounts he rules the boards at just about every practice.

Drexel charged back from a 12-point, second-half deficit, but the Dragons (13-10, 5-7 Colonial Athletic Association) went cold down the stretch as Hofstra (14-9, 6-6) held on for a 66-59 victory in Hempstead, N.Y., on Thursday night. Hollie Mershon led Drexel with 15 points, 7 rebounds, and 4 assists, and Jasmina Rosseel chipped in 14 points. Shante Evans led the Pride with 21 points and 13 rebounds. Drexel's 50-percent shooting in the second half could not make up for the team's meager 7-for-28 effort to open the game.
