Drake plays Washington State Thursday night in Omaha in NCAA Tourney

Drake will be looking for an upset when the Bulldogs take on Washington State Thursday night at the NCAA Tournament in Omaha. Drake is making its third appearance in the tournament in four years and take on a Washington State team that finished second in the PAC-12 in defense.

That’s Drake coach Darian DeVries who says they will need to find ways to generate offense.

DeVries says with 10 new players on the roster it is about handling the moment.

A year ago the Bulldogs squandered a late lead in a first round loss to a Miami team that made it all the way to the Final Four.

That’s Drake junior forward Tucker DeVries who hopes there is a partisan Drake crowd in Omaha.

Drake is 28-6. Washington State is 24-9.
