Drake coach Tom Davis would like to have a healthier team as the Bulldogs look to snap a three-game losing streak Wednesday night at Bradley. Leading scorer Joshua Robinson has missed the last four games with an ankle injury and Davis said he might take part in practice today. He says he has no idea if that means Robinson will be back soon or not, as he says ankle injuries vary in how long they take to heal.Sophomore forward Quantel Murphy is also a question mark. He was injured in Sunday’s loss to Southwest Missouri State with a foot injury. Davis says that leaves him with two walk-ons in critical roles, and leaves him less depth on the bench than he’d like. Bradley will be looking to avenge a January eighth loss to the Bulldogs in Des Moines. Braves coach Jim Les says Davis has done a good job and says the players are really adapting to his system. Bradley had high hopes coming into the season but several key injuries have led to a 1-7 start in the Valley race. He says they’re battling, but haven’t been able to make enough plays down the stretch. Les says this is an unforgiving league, especially on the road. Drake is 3-5 in the Valley, 7-9 overall.
