The Drake Bulldogs will try to snap a two game losing streak when they host Creighton in Missouri Valley Conference play. The Bulldogs last victory came back on January 24th with a 74-62 win over the Blue Jays in Omaha.
Drake coach Mark Phelps says they caught Creighton on a night where they weren’t at their best. Phelps says it is no secret why the Bulldogs won the first meeting, they hit shots and Creighton did not hit shots. He says they had some similar looks on offense in other games that didn’t go down. Drake has won the last four meetings with Creighton.
Creighton coach Dana Altman says the Bulldogs have given them a tough time recently and they got a lot of second opportunities in the first ballgame. He says they need to do better in this game of attacking their zone. The Blue Jays are 7-4 in the Valley and 17-6 overall. Drake is 5-6 in the conference and 14-9 overall.
