Senior point guard Frantz Massenat and the Drexel Dragons have played the equivalent of 2.75 basketball games in their last two outings, participating in two consecutive triple-overtime games. But they seemed no worse for wear in the home opener Dec. 4, as a number of players put up exceptional performances in an 85-82 triple-overtime victory […]

Coming off consecutive defeats, the Drexel women’s basketball team was unable to halt its losing streak Dec. 4 in a 65-60 loss to Colgate University. The Dragons struggled early on both offensively and defensively against a Colgate team that was hot in the first half. Despite Drexel’s strong start to the second half and even […]
Both the Drexel men and women’s squash teams fell to Princeton University this past week, more than a full week removed from their previous appearance on the court. After the long hiatus, the teams failed to capitalize on the opportunity to begin their first winning streak of the season. Each team was coming off a […]
Which Thanksgiving dinner staple is your favorite? Are you more of a main course or a dessert kind of person? Either way, it doesn’t matter, because Thanksgiving is a time for giving thanks, spending time with family, and reveling in gluttony. Nobody said that the last part was made for wrestlers, though. When the Drexel […]
Hopes were high as the Drexel men’s soccer team took the field in the first round of the NCAA College Cup. The Blue and Gold stood between the lines Nov. 21 just after the clock struck 6 p.m. and stood face to face with the Monarchs of Old Dominion University. On this night, the Dragons […]
It was a close game, but the Philadelphia Eagles’ 24-21 victory Dec. 1 against the Arizona Cardinals was by far their most impressive performance of the season. The Cardinals arrived at Lincoln Financial Field red hot on the back of a four-game winning streak, with their latest victory a 40-11 win against a solid Indianapolis […]
On Nov. 27, the Philadelphia 76ers lost 105-94 to the Orlando Magic in a classic “someone HAS to win” game between two horrible teams. Spencer Hawes missed this game because of left-knee soreness, and as it turns out, Metropolis without Superman is not a fun place to be. The Sixers shot 7-22 from downtown in […]
Following a brief two-game road trip through Florida in which the Philadelphia Flyers fell in games against the Florida Panthers and Tampa Bay Lightning, the Orange and Black were quick to right the ship and have gone 3-1 in their last four games. Upon returning home from their tour of Florida, the Flyers were faced […]
After a more than disappointing start to the season, the Philadelphia Flyers finally seem to be turning things around. The Orange and Black have gone 6-2-1 in their last nine games to put themselves back into the playoff picture after the first quarter of the season. The Flyers have found their scoring touch in their […]
There was some excitement to be found from the men’s and women’s swimming and diving teams following their performance Nov. 22-24 in the Frank Elm Invitational at the Rutgers University Aquatic Center. The Dragons didn’t come home with a first-place finish, but they have proven themselves valid competitors in the Colonial Athletic Association. This year’s […]
Facing their biggest test of the season, the Drexel women’s basketball team gave the No. 8 University of Maryland its closest competition of the young season. While the Dragons never led in the game, they were able to claw within three before falling short of the victory 69-63. Leading the upset bid for the Dragons […]
Both the men’s and women’s squash teams returned to the home courts for Drexel over the weekend. Unfortunately, things quickly went south, and both teams lost their first two matches Nov. 22 and 23. They both did, however, manage to salvage the final match of the weekend. Nov. 22 was when Drexel officially opened the […]
The Drexel men’s basketball team has the opportunity to prevent the National Invitation Tournament Season Tip-Off’s “predetermined” championship matchup from taking place when the Dragons take on the No. 5 University of Arizona Nov. 27 in New York City in the semifinals of the tournament. The majority of the country saw the tournament as a […]
Nothing changes the momentum in wrestling quite like a pin. Worth six points on the scoreboard, a pin can reignite the fire under a team and alter the course of an entire dual meet. David Pearce’s pin Nov. 16 against Kagan Squire of Ohio University at the Eastern Michigan Open helped the Dragons get out […]
The Philadelphia 76ers fell to the Toronto Raptors 108-98 Nov. 20, and the score misleadingly implies that the game was a close one. Typically a subpar three-point shooting team (shooting 32.6 percent as a team before the game, a percentage that ranked 22nd out of 30 teams in the NBA), the Raptors were simply unconscious […]
The Philadelphia Eagles are in the midst of a bye week, riding a three-game winning streak that has them tied for first place in the NFC East. After starting out 3-5 in the first half of the season and allowing over 24 points per game on defense, the Eagles have won three straight since, giving […]
Four games into the still-young 2013-14 season, the Drexel men’s basketball team has already begun to craft a winning recipe. In their victories in the opening rounds of the National Invitation Tournament Season Tip-Off over Elon University and Rutgers University at the Rutgers Athletic Center, the Dragons followed a similar pattern. They used steady defense […]
In their 2013-14 season home opener, the Drexel women’s basketball team completed a 17-point comeback against the Friars of Providence College. The Dragons found themselves down by as much as 17 in the first half, but the team received a second-half surge off the bench from freshman Alexis Smith to emerge victorious over Providence 62-52. […]
The Drexel squash teams commenced their 2013-14 campaign Nov. 16, with mixed results. The men’s team split its first two decisions, while the women got off to a perfect start, picking up a shutout victory. The men started the year falling 5-4 at the hands of the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, Md. Drexel received […]
The Drexel swimming and diving teams will head to Piscataway, N.J., for the Frank Elm Invitational hosted Nov. 22 by Rutgers University. The men’s team has yet to be defeated through six meets, and the women’s team is coming off a disheartening loss to the Bearcats of Binghamton University, a close 159-141 contest. There were […]
