Drake sophomore guard Josh Young has been named the Missouri Valley Conference player of the week. Young averaged 20 points in the Bulldog victories last week, including a 23 point effort in a 79-44 win over Iowa State.
Drake coach Keno Davis says he can’t say enough about how Young came in as a freshman and player in the Valley. Davis says after the standout freshman season Young worked even harder to make himself a better player.
Davis says he isn’t surprised at all about the success Young has had this year, because his work has made him more than a one dimensional player. At 8-1, the Bulldogs are off to their best start in 28 years. They return to action Friday at Iowa.
