Seeing a former athlete in the broadcast booth has turned into a common occurrence in today’s sporting landscape. However, a sport like crew typically lacks big-name stars, so when Drexel University graduate Alexandra Paulin found her way into the 6ABC booth for the Aberdeen Dad Vail Regatta May 10 and 11, it was quite the [...]

Now in the conference semifinals round, all four series in the NBA playoffs currently stand deadlocked at 1-1 as of May 8. In the Eastern Conference, the Miami Heat and New York Knicks used their second games in the series to recover from befuddling losses to lower-seeded opponents in their respective series openers. In the [...]
Forty-seven days after the Drexel men’s wrestling team competed in the Colonial Athletic Association Championships, the program announced its intention to leave the CAA for the Eastern Intercollegiate Wrestling Association next season. The Dragons, who accrued an 8-12 overall record with a 3-3 record against CAA opponents, will join the EIWA next year along with [...]
Drexel’s tennis teams had mixed results in the Colonial Athletic Association Championship quarterfinals, but both the men’s and women’s seasons were done before the final matches of the tournament were played April 21. The women’s team fell to the rival University of Delaware in a tough 4-0 showing, as they were victims of matches ending [...]
The Drexel men’s and women’s tennis teams will begin their respective Colonial Athletic Association tournaments in similar situations —- eerily similar, in fact. The men’s team, seeded fourth in the field, will face the fifth-seeded University of Delaware in the quarterfinals in a rematch of the final match of the regular season. The women’s team, [...]
If you were to ask most young girls about their ideal “Cinderella story,” a typical response would consist of falling in love, attending some sort of magical dance and living happily ever after. But you were to ask four special Drexel women, they would have a completely different story. And they would be able to [...]
If you follow college basketball, chances are you have become tired of hearing the term “conference realignment.” If not, you don’t watch enough SportsCenter. While the hottest-profile realignment situation has been the disbandment of the Big East and the creation of the American Athletic Conference, Drexel sports fans know that the Colonial Athletic Association has [...]
If you watched the Drexel Dragons and George Mason University Patriots men’s basketball teams during the 2012-13 season, you would have seen a few common themes emerge. From the Drexel side, Damion Lee, a sophomore with the potential to be the best player in his conference by a mile, was painfully inconsistent without much of [...]
A typical roller coaster starts and ends in the same station. The cars pull out, climb hills, endure fear-inducing drops, but come to rest at the same station where they began. It struck me as I watched the game clock tick toward the end of the regular season March 2 that this also applies to [...]
“We had three wide-open three-point shots. Three of ‘em! … We had our opportunities, great opportunities tonight. Those last 14 seconds tonight — can’t get no better than that. I told [the players] you know, sometimes you’ve gotta make plays. To win games, you have to make plays. … We gave ourselves the opportunities at [...]
Stop me if you’ve heard this one before: Drexel’s men’s basketball team played two games this past week. They won the first one and looked pretty good defensively in a generally encouraging performance. The second game of the week was a bigger test, and after overcoming a poor start, they drew within a few points [...]
There are few cautionary tales that haven’t been written about the men’s basketball team this season. The fans of the Blue and Gold have had to take every win with a grain of salt and every loss with a dose of reality. This week brought both, and as usual, Drexel’s season continues on without certainty [...]
The Dragons finally had a legitimate winning streak. They had shut down one of the premier freshmen in the country, the freshman who now holds the highest single-game point total in the country for his class. And then in came the University of Delaware. As recounted last week, the rivalry game against Delaware was a [...]
Five wins, 11 losses. That was the Drexel men’s basketball team’s record before a Jan. 19 victory over The College of William & Mary on the road. The Dragons now sit at 9-12, still with a losing record, but after facing and knocking off some staunch competition from the league’s elite, the Dragons are feeling [...]
At some point, you learn to take the small victories without worrying about when the big ones will come. The Drexel men’s basketball team is slowly but steadily starting to pile up those small ones. The Dragons defeated The College of William & Mary 59-48 Jan. 19, finally ending their three-game losing streak and picking [...]
Philadelphia’s reputation this basketball season has been boosted by the fantastic play of a fourth-year guard. This guard is averaging just under 20 points per game and has been the cornerstone of the team’s offense, gaining national attention from peers and developing quite the well-rounded game. Did you guess Jrue Holiday of the Philadelphia 76ers? [...]
Were you anxious for the beginning of college basketball season, amped to see if the men’s basketball team could avenge last year’s March Madness snub with a season of destiny? If so, you’re probably quite disappointed at this point. But pout not, for the cream of the Colonial Athletic Association crop this winter can still [...]
Try as they might, the Drexel men’s basketball team can’t seem to get a break on the hardwood these days, and even when they do, stringing two breaks together is equally elusive. After notching a solid win Nov. 25 against Rice University to end their stint at the DirecTV Classic, the Dragons came home hoping [...]
Every successful basketball team has leadership at the helm of its squad, be it a couple seniors who have been around the block or the best player on the team taking up the cause. For the Drexel women’s basketball team, it’s no different, and senior Hollie Mershon has answered the call after Kamile Nacickaite and [...]
After starting slow in their home opener Nov. 14, the Drexel women’s basketball team gave their fans every reason to root until the final buzzer sounded. Well, almost until the final buzzer sounded. With 0.9 seconds left, the Dragons found themselves up on Saint Joseph’s University by one, 45-44, defending an inbound play that would [...]
