New Drake basketball coach Tom Davis gets an early look at his team this weekend when the Bulldogs leave for a three-game trip to Cancun, Mexico. The Bulldogs have been practicing for just more than a week to get ready and Davis wants to get a look at the entire 15-man roster. He says it works best if he keeps an open mind through the trip before deciding who’ll be the starters. Davis plans on starting three different lineups on the trip so everyone gets a good look from him before fall practice starts. He says players will know after this trip what they need to work on to get better. One newcomer that has impressed the coaches is a walk-on. Pete Eggers was an All-Stater at Dubuque Wahlert and spent the past two seasons at Kirkwood. Eggers is a pre-law walkon who Davis says can play.Drake will play two games on Saturday and one more on Sunday to complete the trip.
