William and Mary didn't draw up a fancy play. Marcus Thornton didn't even bother to take it to the basket. He just dribbled calmly up the court, rose up over a defender, and put another dagger through the heart of a Drexel season that has already seen more than its share. Thornton's buzzer-beating three-pointer gave William and Mary a 68-66 win over Drexel at the Daskalakis Athletic Center. Thornton and Drexel's Chris Fouch, two of the Colonial Athletic Association's premier guards, staged a battle-within-a-battle Saturday that wasn't over until the clock expired.

Villanova coach Andy Talley believes there is no margin for error if his team is to make a second consecutive trip to the Football Championship Subdivision playoffs. The Wildcats are 4-3, and 3-1 in the Colonial Athletic Association with four games remaining. It is possible that Villanova could lose another game and receive a bid.
