Drake continues a lengthy road trip with a visit to Northern Illinois. Bulldog coach Kurt Kanaskie says his team will battle a good opponent and fatigue. The Bulldogs had a lengthy trip back after finishing a tournament in Hawaii on Sunday. It took 22 and a half hours to get home as snow delayed their flight in Chicago. Kanaskie says the Bulldogs are looking for a better effort than last year’s blowout loss at home. He says it wasn’t an issue of ability, it was an issue of focus.
