After watching their most recent practice, I believe that one thing is clear about the 2013-14 Drexel women’s basketball team: They are nowhere near the caliber of the team that won the Women’s National Invitation Tournament championship last year. They are a young, raw team trying to find out what type of team they can […]

Last season, Drexel women’s basketball coach Denise Dillon led the Dragons through a season unlike any other.

Curt Flood is a name that gets lost in the annals of sports history. His name becomes forgotten because his performance on the field pales in comparison to his accomplishment off the field. Flood, the former St. Louis Cardinals outfielder, challenged Major League Baseball’s reserve clause in 1969 and changed the way professional athletes are […]
Last offseason the Philadelphia 76ers were celebrating the arrival of 7-foot All-Star center Andrew Bynum and sharpshooter Jason Richardson.
