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.

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 […]

Jameson Detweiler doesn’t usually go to the net. But in a scoreless, winner-take-all match against The College of William & Mary in the Colonial Athletic Association championship game, the redshirt freshman defender took a chance and followed team captain Tal Bublil into scoring range. In the 26th minute of the match, junior midfielder Michele Pataia […]
The Drexel wrestling team knew it would be a tough weekend in Michigan. The team’s bus broke down Nov 15, causing a three-and-a-half-hour delay in an already nine-hour ride and perhaps serving as a sign of things to come. Arriving late at night with many of the guys still needing to work out to cut […]

Matt Azevedo felt like he was finally back home.
