Chris Fouch Granted Sixth Year of Eligibility

To very little surprise, Drexel's Chris Fouch was granted a sixth year of eligibility by the NCAA Monday night after missing the majority of the past season with a broken ankle.

We are constantly reminded of how sports are team-based ventures. And yet one player is often the difference between an average team and an elite one.

One player who could have made a world of difference this past season is Chris Fouch, Drexel's elder statesman guard who, after missing all but 81 minutes of the 2012-2013 season, will return for his sixth and final season this fall. The news broke on Twitter from City of Basketball Love.com writer Josh Verlin:

This comes as no surprise; the last time Mid-Major Madness spoke with Drexel head coach Bruiser Flint, he was confident that Fouch would be eligible to return. Fouch played just two and a half games this past season, scoring 50 points in those 81 minutes before he broke his ankle in the second half of the Battle of 33rd rivalry game against the University of Pennsylvania.

With his return, the Dragons once again become a team to fear in the CAA, as they were last September before stumbling Fouch-less to a first round conference tournament exit. With his return, Frantz Massenat in his final season as a Dragon, and Damion Lee reaching what should be a peak season, the Drexel backcourt is -- on paper -- the best in the Colonial.
