A few months ago over Labor Day weekend, my roommate invited my girlfriend and me to spend a few days with him and his girlfriend at his house in Tampa, Fla. We enjoyed the days sitting around the pool and spent the nights relaxing on the dock with fishing poles in the water. One night, [...]
Things were rolling as smoothly as possible roughly 10 months ago for Bruiser Flint’s Dragons. The men’s basketball team had completed a 19-game winning streak, which spanned the course of two months.

Proud.” The fans are passionate, and the players are intense, but it is hard to be proud. The Sixers lost Game 7 to the Celtics, and [...]
In 2003, the last time the Philadelphia 76ers made it to the second round of the playoffs, I nervously sat in my seat at the First Union Center, now known as the Wells Fargo Center. I was watching the Sixers take on the Detroit Pistons in some second-round action. At one point in the game, [...]
Drexel head coach James “Bruiser” Flint roams the sidelines during the Dragons 56-59 loss to Virginia Commonwealth University in the Colonial Athletic Association Championship game. The tournament took place in Richmond, Va. at the Richmond Coliseum. Drexel vs. the world — not necessarily. The above statement has caught on as “the thing” to say after [...]
Ten years ago a Drexel Athletics staff member named Sean Joyce had a dream. Although people continuously told him his idea had no chance and that many had failed to accomplish the same feat many times before, Joyce did not back down.
