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 […]

With each step up the ladder to cut down the nets, senior guard Hollie Mershon was closer to realizing a dream she has had from the moment she stepped onto Drexel University’s campus. Words couldn’t express the feeling that she and fellow seniors Taylor Wootton, Renee Johnson-Allen and Nicki Jones had after completing the greatest […]
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.
