The Dagger

Frantz Massenat buries 50 footer at the buzzer to propel Drexel to a win

In a nightmarish season rife with ill-timed injuries and exasperating losses, Drexel finally received some good fortune.

Senior guard Frantz Massenat split two defenders and sank a leaning, half-court heave as time expired Wednesday night to enable the Dragons to avoid overtime and secure a badly needed 55-52 win at Hofstra.

Massenat's miracle shot negated a career night from Hofstra's Taran Buie, who scored 29 points and drained six 3-pointers including a step-back shot with six seconds to play that tied the score at 52. Massenat and Damion Lee led Drexel with 14 points apiece.

Perhaps Wednesday's victory will be what ignites a Drexel team that has been in search of a spark since November.

The Dragons entered the season as CAA favorites after returning the core of a team that won the regular season league title last year and was one of the final at-large snubs by the NCAA tournament selection committee. With a 6-11 record and a .500 mark in conference play so far, Drexel isn't where it hoped to be, but there's still time to turn things around in a weaker-than-usual league in advance of the CAA tournament.
