Drake Holds Off Indiana State To Win MVC Tournament

Drake survived a furious second half rally by Indiana State in St. Louis. The Bulldogs surrendered an 18 point second half lead then used a late 7-0 run to edge the Sycamores 84-80 and claim a second straight Missouri Valley Conference Tournament crown.

That’s Drake coach Darian DeVries. With the victory the Bulldogs are 28-6 and will play in the NCAA Tournament for the third time in four years.

DeVries credits the players for building a consistent program.

Tucker DeVries led the Bulldogs with 27 points, including four of five from three point range.

Sophomore guard Connor Enright hit a three pointer with two minutes remaining to snap a 76-all tie and Drake led the remainder of the way.
