HATTIESBURG, Miss. - Drexel coach Bruiser Flint had a very simple explanation after his Dragons were knocked around before being knocked off in their final nonconference game of the year. "They just outphysicaled us, bottom line," Flint said after watching Southern Miss bang its way to a 66-49 victory. "It all goes into it, when you get outphysicaled and don't shoot the ball well, that's what happens. It's a three-point game at halftime, we miss two layups to start the half, we miss some foul shots, and then they just went and some balls on us and that was it. " The Golden Eagles (13-2)

AFTER DROPPING four of its first five games this basketball season, against formidable opponents, and dealing with several injuries, Drexel needed a win. The Dragons have almost as many injured players on their bench (three) as healthy reserves (four). Since Southern Mississippi arrived at the Daskalakis Athletic Center yesterday carrying a 3-1 record and averaging 73.2 points per game, Drexel expected to have a stressful game. Wrong. The Golden Eagles must've left their hearts in Hattiesburg because Drexel rolled to a stress-free, 59-36 victory.

It would have been impossible for Damion Lee to have the kind of performance he did on Sunday night in Drexel's sixth game last year. Lee sat out that game with a knee injury and ended up missing the rest of the season. He made up for it this time around. Lee scored 19 of his 22 points in the first half and the Dragons stunned Southern Mississippi, 59-36, at the Daskalakis Athletic Center. "I'm just glad to be back," said Lee, who has played in more games than he did all of last season.

Austin Davis has an arm and he'll have the football in his right hand Sunday afternoon at Lincoln Financial Field, so he'll also have a chance. Maybe he'll be the next Joe Webb, the last little-known undrafted quarterback to come into the Linc and pick apart the Eagles, leading the Minnesota Vikings to an unlikely victory in the infamous Wuss Bowl in 2010. Maybe Davis will become something more than the next Webb. Maybe he'll emerge as the St. Louis Rams' second coming of Kurt Warner, who is arguably the greatest undrafted quarterback in NFL history and certainly among the league's most amazing stories.
