Drake coach Tom Davis says the Bulldogs will be ready for the conference tournament despite closing the regular season by losing ten of their last 11 games. Six of those losses were in overtime or by three points or less. Davis says they need work on both ends of the floor and they need to keep looking for ways to get better.
Davis says despite all the close losses he is encouraged and not discouraged about the future. He says “losing is tough no matter what” which he says has been difficult, but he says the team keeps bouncing back. Davis says they’ll lose some guys, but have some good guys coming in and coming back and they hope “the road is not so bumpy down the way.” Drake opens the Valley tournament Thursday night against Indiana State.
