The Drake Bulldogs return to Missouri Valley Conference action at home tonight against Bradley. The Bulldogs are 5-5 after Saturday’s upset win at Wichita State and hope to build on the momentum. Drake coach Tom Davis says they’ve just won one game and that’s all it means, but he says that’s hard to teach young guys. He says his team will need a similar effort against Bradley, as he says they have a good ballclub and will get better each game. Bradley’s Marcellus Sommerville began his career at Iowa. He is averaging over 16-points per game. Bradley coach Jim Les says there’ve been a lot of expectations on Sommerville as a local player who came back home. Les says that’s a little unfair as he hasn’t played that many games, but he says Sommerville is a versatile player. He says he can play inside and then step out and knock down shots too.Bradley is 8-5. U-N-I takes a five-game winning streak on the road to play Wichita State. The Shockers will be looking to bounce back from that loss to Drake. Panther coach Greg McDermott says his team cannot be concerned with how Wichita approaches the game, whether they’re on a winning or losing streak. McDermott says his team has to continue getting better themselves to keep winning. U-N-I is 7-3.
