Brent Heemskerk’s steal of an inbounds pass with seven seconds remaining preserved a two point lead as Drake snapped a five game losing skid with a 45-41 win over Illinois State. The Bulldogs saw a 17 point second half lead sliced to just two points before picking up their 12th win of the season.

Drake coach Tom Davis on his post game show on K-R-N-T, says it was good to win after coming up short a couple of times. Davis says his team struggled during the second half and couldn’t get many good looks.
The Bulldogs are now 5-9 in conference play.
