Drexel’s Elegar suspended for VCU game

This notice just came in from Rob Washburn, Assistant Commissioner of the Colonial Athletic Association:

“CAA Commissioner Tom Yeager has suspended Drexel University men’s basketball player Frank Elegar for one game for unsportsmanlike conduct during the Dragons’ game at the University of Delaware on January 20. Elegar will miss Drexel’s next game with VCU on Saturday. The incident occurred midway through the second half of last Saturday’s game when Elegar committed a flagrant act against Delaware’s Sam McMahon.”

Junior center Elegar, 6-9, 220, leads the Dragons in scoring, averaging 14.4 points per game. No doubt, his 6.8 rebounds per outing will also be missed when Drexel (15-4, 7-2 in CAA) hosts the VCU Rams (17-3, 9-0 in CAA) for their matchup tomorrow at high noon.
