Drexel set a single season school record for wins this season during a 29-7 campaign that the Dragons couldn’t determine a single Most Valuable Player so they split the award.

Sophomore point guard Frantz Massenat and senior forward Samme Givens were named the Dragons Co-MVPs.

Massenat was a first-team all-Colonial Athletic Associations choice after averaging a team-high 13.7 points. He also led the CAA in both assists (4.8 per game) and three-point field goal percentage (.450).

Givens finished as only the third Drexel player to record more than 1,000 career points and 1,000 rebounds.

A second team all-CAA selection, Givens finished with 1,226 points and 1,059 rebounds.

Juniors Daryl McCoy and Derrick Thomas shared the Dragon “D” Award, presented to the team’s top defensive player.

The Dragons allowed just 56.1 points, fifth lowest in Division I.

Damion Lee, the CAA Rookie of the Year, earned the Samuel D. Cozen Award, awarded to the Dragons’ most improved player. The 6-foot-6 Lee averaged 12 points per game.

The Donald Shank Spirit & Dedication Award was given to sophomore Jake Lerner. Fellow junior Steve Manojlovic earned the team’s academic award. He is an environmental science major and has a 3.59 grade-point average.

Givens is the only player that Drexel losses next season, and while he will be difficult to replace, the expectations will be high for the Dragons.

This season Drexel earned the fifth NIT bid in coach Bruiser Flint’s 11 years at the school. The Dragons won two NIT games before falling to Massachusetts in the quarterfinals.

Earning an NCAA Tournament bid will be a realistic goal for the Dragons in 2012-2013.
