Drake coach Darian DeVries appreciates the effort he is getting from his shorthanded team.
Standout forward Tank Hemphill has missed the last four games with a foot injury and senior point guard Roman Penn is playing on a broken foot. Despite that, Penn finished with 18 points and played 41 minutes as the Bulldogs rallied from a late 10 point deficit for an overtime win at UNI.
That’s Drake coach Darian DeVries. Despite the injuries the Bulldogs sit third in the Missouri Valley race with a 5-2 record.
DeVries likes the toughness of his team.
The Bulldogs visit Illinois State Wednesday night.
