Drexel tried and tried, but the Dragons couldn't make it all the way back yesterday and dropped a 75-72 decision to New Hampshire. After winning its first-ever North Atlantic Conference game on Monday over Maine, Drexel (4-9 overall, 1-1 league) came out of the blocks slowly against New Hampshire (4-9, 3-1). "Coming in, we knew it was going to be difficult," Drexel coach Bill Herrion said. "We knew we would have to play very well to win. I was a little disappointed with the way we started.

Five fumble recoveries and a big day for Delaware all-America safety Warren McIntire helped the Blue Hens roll over New Hampshire, 44-22, yesterday in a Yankee Conference game. The fumble recoveries were a big part of Delaware's 28-0 first-half lead, which helped erase the sting of last week's 21-20 non-conference loss to West Chester. Defensively, McIntire recovered two fumbles, forced another, and broke up a pass. "We played much better (than last week) in every way," said Hens coach Tubby Raymond, whose club improved to 3-1 (3-0)

Now that the permafrost portion of the presidential primary season has ended, a few observations: Yes, Sen. John Kerry of Massachusetts has earned the title of Democratic "front-runner. " His wins in New Hampshire and Iowa demonstrate an ability to hang tough, especially considering his campaign staff was in shambles only recently. And no, the race isn't over. Several candidates have earned further consideration by voters in larger, more diverse states. (The closest our region will come to having a meaningful say in the contest is when Delaware holds its primary Tuesday.

NASHUA, N.H. - They came into New Hampshire with the most to lose, two candidates swamped in Iowa by a wave of political change. They had little time for course corrections. So Democrat Hillary Rodham Clinton and Republican Mitt Romney worked hard this weekend to be seen as "change agents," a challenging task since both are candidates of the political establishment. And they sought to call into question the change credentials of their principal opponents in tomorrow's first-in-the-nation primary.

Norman Richardson scored a season-high 23 points and Hofstra, despite blowing a 23-point lead in the second half, beat New Hampshire, 75-70, last night in Hempstead, N.Y.

They extended the lead to 56-33 with 17 minutes, 3 seconds left on a three-point play by Danny Walker, but they made only two more field goals the rest of the game.

Sixth-seeded Drexel's "3M" attack led the Dragons to a 69-59 upset of third-seeded New Hampshire yesterday in a quarterfinal of the America East women's basketball tournament in Burlington, Vt.

Republicans, unified and disciplined on Capitol Hill, are about to break into open warfare over the other end of Pennsylvania Avenue. Despite some high-profile withdrawals in recent weeks, the prospect of facing a damaged and vulnerable President Clinton is drawing a swarm of Republicans interested in challenging him in 1996. When New Hampshire Republicans gather this evening for a dinner to start the year leading to their primary, the first in the nation, nine potential candidates for the 1996 presidential nomination will line up to court their favor.

BALTIMORE - Pressure? Yo, when you're the quarterback for Villanova, which has always been known for moving the football, hefty expectations are pretty much part of the deal. To the surprise of nobody, fourth-year Wildcat junior John Robertson was named the Colonial Athletic Association's Preseason Offensive Player of the Year at the annual CAA media day at M&T Bank Stadium. But as Villanova found out a year ago, projections mean absolutely zilch once you start playing. The Wildcats, the pick to win the league, started fifth in the national polls last season.

BALTIMORE - It's been quite a preseason for Villanova junior quarterback John Robertson, and practice hasn't even started. Earlier this month, Robertson was among 20 players named to the watch list for the Walter Payton Award, given to the top player in the Football Championship Subdivision. Robertson also has been named a third-team FCS all-American by the Sports Network. The honors continued Wednesday, when Robertson was named the Colonial Athletic Association's preseason offensive player of the year.

AS THE Sprint Cup series pauses for its midsummer break, a few thoughts are in order: * Six drivers have won 14 of the season's first 19 races. I don't know whether this is good for the series or not. Multiple-race winners proves these drivers and teams have their acts together and will be serious contenders in the Chase. But more winners, such as first-timer Aric Almirola at Daytona this month, are good for the series. With race wins basically determining the 16-driver field for the Chase, there are 11 winners so far. Non-winners such as Matt Kenseth, Ryan Newman and Tony Stewart are likely to win before the Chase begins Sept.

The Pennsylvania House's proposed $29.1 billion budget is so out of step with the state's actual needs that the document's only possible use is to serve as scratch paper for notes during the Senate debate. The House budget largely addresses the state's estimated $1.5 billion funding gap by again shortchanging schools. It provides an additional $70 million, a 1.3 percent increase, for basic education. But that doesn't come close to making up for past cuts that have forced schools to lay off teachers.

BEDFORD, N.H. - As he shook hands, snapped selfies, and bantered with bartenders in a New Hampshire restaurant, Gov. Christie looked like a man who hopes the state known for its first-in-the-nation presidential primary will also be one of the first to accept him as a politician reborn after several months in scandal-induced purgatory. New Hampshire "is a great place," Christie said Friday as he and Walt Havenstein, a Republican running for governor, greeted patrons around the bar and in booths at T-Bones.

Pennsylvania's primary was notable for the number of Democratic female candidates for governor and Congress, including Allyson Schwartz, Katie McGinty, Val Arkoosh, Marjorie Margolies, and Shaughnessy Naughton. Every one of them lost. To argue that all five candidates are the same is to be reductive and wrong. Pennsylvania has never elected a woman governor, or senator, and, come January, it will be represented by 18 men in the U.S. House. (New Jersey appears primed to elect one woman to Congress.)

NEW YORK - The Flyers on Wednesday signed highly regarded free agent Kevin Goumas, a small but swift left winger/center who starred at the University of New Hampshire. Goumas, 22, the top scorer the last two years for UNH, will spend the rest of the season with the AHL's Adirondack Phantoms on an amateur tryout contract. "He's got good speed and hockey sense and skill," general manager Paul Holmgren said before the Flyers faced the Rangers at Madison Square Garden. "He's not a great big guy, but we certainly feel like he can help us right now for the Phantoms, anyway.

Despite a pool of more than $75 million in federal appropriations for fisheries disaster relief from Hurricane Sandy and other storm damage, at only $1.5 million, New Jersey has received a pittance compared with other regions, according to state legislators and anglers associations. Marine industry losses in both commercial and recreational fishing because of Sandy have been estimated at $121 million in New Jersey and $77 million in New York state. The two states have been told to split $3 million being allocated by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Fisheries Service for the recovery, officials said.

TRENTON - A day after one of his top aides was ensnared in a bizarre tale of petty payback politics, Gov. Christie on Thursday faced what he called a "crisis of confidence. " "You can't prevent everything," he said. "The test of leadership is: When you find it out, what do you do?" From Trenton to Washington, lawmakers and political analysts mostly praised Christie's response to the crisis, which ballooned into a full-blown scandal after documents surfaced Wednesday showing that some of his inner staff punished a Democratic mayor who did not endorse the Republican governor for reelection by closing his town's lanes to the George Washington Bridge for four days.
