When Damion Lee went down against Arizona late in the second half, it appeared as if the Dragons' season hung in the balance. Drexel was able to hang with the Wildcats through the end of the game, but the same energy that powered the Dragons before was missing.
It looks as if Lee will also be missing for Friday's consolation game against Alabama, based on a report on the Drexel website. There is still no definitive diagnosis beyond a knee injury. Lee will be re-evaluated on Friday and for Drexel fan's there has to be some hope that everything is still intact inside that knee.
Lee is averaging 13.0 points per game and 4.2 rebounds, as part of the troika of guards that have powered the Drexel offense so far this season. Along with Chris Fouch and Frantz Massenat, the trio is responsible for 65.8 percent of the Dragon scoring.
The loss of Lee is a big hole, especially with Kazembe Abif (7.0 ppg) still out with concussion symptoms.
