As if having his team's NCAA tournament hopes jeopardized by Monday's crushing loss to VCU weren't bad enough for Drexel's Daryl McCoy, the junior forward also had to endure a memorable wardrobe malfunction.
TV cameras caught McCoy with his pants down with about seven minutes left in the first half of VCU's 59-56 win in the CAA title game. When VCU freshman Treveon Graham lost his balance after being fouled on the way to the rim, he steadied himself on McCoy and somehow tugged his shorts down to his ankles in the process.
"Mr. McCoy has a wardrobe malfunction," ESPN play-by-play announcer Carter Blackburn joked. "Cover your eyes, kids."
It's tempting to say that Drexel was also exposed Monday night, but that could not be further from the truth. The Dragons, winners of 19 straight prior to Monday, took VCU to the wire in a venue that might as well have been the Rams' home court, battling back from a 14-point deficit only to fall when Frantz Massenat's attempt at a game-tying three just before the buzzer missed the mark.
Drexel's fate is now in the hands of the selection committee, never a spot you want to be in.
Will the Dragons' gaudy 27-6 record and outright CAA title outweigh its meager strength of schedule and lack of quality wins outside its league? It won't be until Selection Sunday that we know for sure.
