Despite the saying, some records really appear as though they weren't meant to be broken. For Drexel's women's basketball team, a few records have (or will) stand the test of time. Michelle Maslowski ('98-'02) held the Dragons' scoring record (1,900 career points) for nearly a decade before Gabriela Marginean joined a class all by herself with a career point total of 2,581 points. That record will likely stand for many many years to come.
Barbara Yost, one of Drexel's best all-around players ever, has held the distinction of being the program's career leader in assists for a long time now. Between 1985 and 1988 Yost accumulated a staggering 584 assists. Steph Frysinger ('99-'03) is far back in second place with 416. Several recent Dragons do appear on the team's top ten list, with Marisa Crane ('08-'12) checking in at ninth overall (308 career assists), and Hollie Mershon ('09-'13) in third with 387.
Drexel redshirt junior Meghan Creighton currently finds herself on pace to end up at the top of that prestigious list. As a freshman, Creighton played alongside Mershon and tallied 92 assists (Mershon had 185). She averaged 2.4 assists per game over the course of the 38 games (a season that included a postseason WNIT championship). Taking over the full-time duties at point guard in her sophomore year, Creighton tallied 120 assists, good for 3.9 assists per game over thirty-one games. Last year, the point guard's season was cut short to just seven games due to injury. She made the most of her early season play, adding 41 assists (5.9 per game).
This year through seven games, Creighton has already increased her assist ratio from last year. She currently has 47 assists which equates to 6.7 per game. To this point in her career, she has exactly 300 assists. That total puts her tenth on the all-time list and just eight behind Crane. Drexel will play at least 23 more games this year, and ideally quite a few more than that. If Creighton can maintain her high assist rate through the rest of the season, she'll add another 154 to her career total. That would already place her second all-time in school history. It's not hard to see how Creighton stands a good chance of passing Yost, as she'll have another full slate of games in her senior year as well.
Of note, Mershon currently holds the single season assist record with the 185 alluded to earlier. Creighton, if she can maintain her current pace, would end up close to 200. Creighton currently sits tenth overall in the country with her assist rate. The point guard is ranked eleventh nationally in assist-to-turnover ratio at 3.62. Creighton is currently seventh on the school's all-time ranking in three pointers made (126) and has a good chance to break Fiona Flanagan's recent record for most games played in school history.
