Fifth-year senior Chris Fouch will apply for a sixth year of NCAA eligibility, according to coach Bruiser Flint.
Fouch was lost for the season back in November after breaking his right ankle in a game against Penn.
Prior to breaking his ankle, the guard was leading Drexel in scoring through the first three contests at 16.7 ppg. The Dragons have been unable to fill the offensive void Fouch has left as the team is averaging just 62 points a game, 295 th in the country.
The guard could make a strong case to retain another year of eligibility since the request, just like his first case, is due to a medical reason.
During the 2008-09 season, Fouch suffered a torn ACL which caused him to miss the entire year. The next year he then bounced back and became the first Dragon to be named the CAA Rookie of the Year.
If Fouch is granted a sixth year of eligibility, the Dragons’ backcourt would be littered with talent. Among Frantz Massenat, Damion Lee and Tavon Allen, Drexel would have plenty of depth at the guard position in 2013-14.
