Sebastien Le Toux was out at a West Chester watering hole last night where he was honored by fans and also gave some parting words while fighting back tears. We were not there, but reader Tommy sent in this video of Le Toux's goodbye.
It's both kind of touching and quite strange (and very poorly shot, sideways camera person). It's incredible to see an athlete of Le Toux's stature come out to a bar and mingle with fans on his way out the door. Can't imagine this happening with an athlete from any other sport in this town. It speaks to what a unique relationship he and the Union have with the fans.
In case you haven’t heard, the Sixers traded big man Nerlens Noel to the Dallas Mavericks before Thursday's deadline (see story).
While Noel's former teammates were saddened by the trade, including Joel Embiid, the rookie big man is already looking forward to squaring off against his friend.
The Sixers face Noel and the Mavericks on March 17 at the Wells Fargo Center.
Jackson Kent and Tom Vodanovich combined to score 31 points and James Madison held off Drexel late to secure a 70-64 victory Thursday night.
The game could be a preview of a first-round match-up in the Colonial Athletic Association Tournament. With one game left in the regular season, James Madison (9-21, 7-10) is the No. 7 seed and Drexel (9-21, 3-14) has locked up the No. 10 seed. Those seeds meet in the first round, with the winner facing the No. 2 seed in the second round.
Sammy Mojica hit a 3-pointer with :32 left to get the Dragons within four, 66-62, but Shakir Brown and Joey McLean each hit a pair of free throws to seal the victory.
Kent hit 6 of 11 from the floor and tallied 16 points with eight rebounds to lead the Dukes. Vodanovich added 15 points.
Kurk Lee and Mojica both scored 18 points off the Dragons' bench.
