Injury Riddled Drake Hanging In The Missouri Valley Race

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.
