Drake is at home against Dayton and for one of the few times the Pioneer League title will not be on the line. Valparaiso clinched the north division crown last week with an overtime win over Drake, another in a string of heartbreaking losses for the Bulldogs this season. Title hopes are gone but Drake coach Rob Ash says there is plenty to prove. He says the thing that bothers them is how good they could be after several close loses. He says that knowledge that they could win the conference carries them. And he says there will be plenty of motivation,as Dayton is a rival and the game has been for the conference championship in the past.
