Some notes from the DAC ...
* Coach Bruiser Flint said he needs senior leadership from Scott Rodgers and Tramayne Hawthorne, the only two seniors on the team. Rodgers made some clutch free throws and only turned the ball over three times. Hawthorne seems comfortable providing a spark off the bench. Hawthorne (11.2) is the only returnee who scored in double figures last season.
* For a team picked last in the Colonial Athletic Association preseason poll, Drexel looked reasonably good vs. Penn on Tuesday morning. Eight players were in action for 10 minutes or more. Freshman forward Samme Givens collected 10 rebounds in 18 minutes and added seven points.
