WILMINGTON, N.C. - Prolific Drexel forward Samme Givens thinks his team is close to the level it needs to be at to live up to its preseason hype as the favorite in the Colonial Athletic Association. Coach Bruiser Flint isn't convinced his lone senior is right, but his Dragons certainly showed it on Saturday night at Trask Coliseum, dominating the final 30 minutes for an emphatic, 79-57 victory over UNC-Wilmington, their 10th win in 11 games. "We're piecing in the parts. We need to bring it every day," said Givens, who passed 1,000 career points on the night.

Martha White shot 10-for-15 en route to 22 points, but Kristen Hanzer's only basket proved to be the game-winner as UNC-Wilmington held off visiting Drexel, 60-58, yesterday in a Colonial Athletic Association women's game. Hanzer's jumper with 1:53 remaining was the last of 10 lead changes and gave the Seahawks a 59-58 lead. UNC-W missed the front end of two one-and-ones down the stretch before Drexel inbounded with 7 seconds left and a chance to win. But Gabriela Marginean (16 points)

North Carolina-Wilmington, the Colonial Athletic Association leader, visited Drexel last night and nearly pulled off one of the most remarkable comebacks in the league this season. The Seahawks trailed by 15 points with 13 minutes, 4 seconds to play and eventually cut the deficit to three. This game, though, was at the Daskalakis Athletic Center, where the Dragons are unbeaten in CAA games, and Drexel was able to close out a 68-65 victory in front of 2,073 fans. UNC-Wilmington, led by Ed Williams, a high-jumping forward who scored 16 points, mounted a furious rally fueled by full-court pressure.

The streak will someday end for the Drexel basketball team - it just wasn't going to happen last night. Coach Bruiser Flint accepted that fact before he boarded a bus and left the UNC-Wilmington campus. The Seahawks limited his Dragons to 30.8 percent shooting in a 65-58 defeat at Trask Coliseum. Drexel had nearly as many turnovers (14) as field goals (16), and its shooting percentage was the lowest this season. Those offensive numbers were obviously dismal. Yet they were nothing more than background.

Drexel coach Bruiser Flint believes that on Senior Night most coaches tell their younger guys to make it a special night for the seniors in their last game on their home court. "I say, 'Yo, seniors, make it special for yourself,' and they did," Flint said Saturday night. Senior Daryl McCoy was the biggest contributor to Drexel's 62-46 victory over UNC-Wilmington at the Daskalakis Center. McCoy had 13 points, almost all earned by himself during a relentless night on the glass.

The Drexel men's basketball team fumbled away an already slim chance for a first-round bye in the Colonial Athletic Association tourney. In addition to needing outside help, the Dragons had to win their final two CAA games. North Carolina-Wilmington played the role of spoiler last night, defeating Drexel, 75-69, at the Daskalakis Athletic Center in the next-to-last game for both teams. Saturday's regular-season finale at conference foe James Madison lost some luster for the Dragons (15-15, 10-7 CAA)

Drexel coach Bruiser Flint had a message for his senior guard Frantz Massenat at halftime against North Carolina-Wilmington on Monday night. According to Flint, it was time for Massenat, who entered the contest averaging 17.9 points per game, to get out of "point guard mode. " "We're not going to win if you take one shot in the half," Flint told a scoreless Massenat after the senior recorded just a single shot in the first 20 minutes. Thanks to Massenat's 13 second-half points - and major contributions from Chris Fouch and Tavon Allen - Drexel knocked off UNCW, 61-50, at the Daskalakis Athletic Center.

WILMINGTON, N.C. - Drexel coach Bruiser Flint was sure Freddie Wilson had a big game in him. He just wasn't sure when Wilson would produce it. Saturday turned out to be the perfect time. With Drexel having only nine available players, Wilson used an explosive second half to put up a career-high 16 points, leading the Dragons to a 79-63, come-from-behind win over UNC Wilmington in Colonial Athletic Association play. "We've just been waiting for him to do what he did. He just hasn't done it," Flint said.

SUPPOSE THEY ran a college basketball tournament and no one showed up, including a few of the teams. It seems that the Colonial Athletic Association, of which Drexel and Delaware are members, is in a state of flux, with teams leaving (Virginia Commonwealth, Old Dominion, Georgia State), teams arriving (Hofstra, Towson) and teams being banned from postseason play because of poor performance (Towson and UNC-Wilmington). If the CAA would hold its men's basketball tournament today, only seven teams would be eligible to play.
