The Scouting Report
In what has been an up and down season thus far, the men’s basketball team has the chance to turn things around in conference play with a pair of upcoming match-ups against Missouri Valley rivals. Behind leading scorer Gary Ricks, Jr., they’ll tip-off against Indiana State on January 17 and Evansville two weeks later.
The women’s team, meanwhile, has enjoyed early-season success behind a pair of freshman standouts. On January 3, guard Maddy Dean made her first career start and scored 23 points while grabbing 10 rebounds. She was named MVC “Newcomer of the Week” two days later, joining teammate Becca Jones, who has already won that award twice this season. Instead of three-legged racing around campus all week, the two budding stars will show fans how well they work together when they lead the Bulldogs into a match-up with Wichita State on February 1.
At many universities, one sport has a tendency to overshadow the rest. Not so at Drake. The Bulldogs have experienced great success across numerous fields of play, amounting to a total of 59 Missouri Valley Conference championships. They’ve claimed a league-leading nine titles in men’s cross country, as well as eight more in women’s tennis. The women’s basketball team has become a consistent participant in the NCAA Tournament, and in 2001, the football team became just the 18th school in NCAA I-AA history to eclipse the 500-win mark. After graduating, athletic alums don’t just dip themselves in bronze and spend days posing as statues somewhere on campus. Rather, they move on to earn acclaim as Olympic gold medalists, MLS stars, and Masters champions.
