The conference title hopes of the Drake women took a major hit last night as the Bulldogs lost at home to Valley-co-leader Evansville 69-66 in overtime.
Drake coach Amy Stevens on her post game show on KRNT says the rebounded well until the last two minutes of the game. She says Evansville made the plays late in the game and her team didn’t. The Bulldogs fall to 7-4 in the Valley and now sit two games off the lead.
Stevens says the team is so disappointed in the loss as they understood the significance of the game in the conference race. She says they now have to bounce back on Saturday. Drake hosts Southern Illinois on Saturday night.
