With final exams underway the state’S Big Four basketball teams are idle until this weekend. Drake returns to action Sunday with a visit to Iowa State and Bulldog coach Kurt Kanaskie says the test schedules will limit their practice time. They’ ll start practicing Thursday in preparation for the game, but he says they haven’t done anything since last Saturday. Drake is 5-4 on the season and Kanaskie says while there are plenty of areas that need improvement this has been an outstanding group to coach. He says they’ve had not trouble off the floor in the classroom. Kanaskie says a strong group of newcomers has given the Bulldogs added depth.
