The Drake Bulldogs look to snap a three game losing skid when they host Bradley in Missouri Valley Conference play. Bradley has dropped its first four league games but Bulldog coach Mark Phelps says that record is deceiving.

Phelps says Bradley has a lot of talent and athleticism. Phelps says the key in tonight’s game will be defense as they can’t allow them to score the way they did in the game against Creighton where they were confident and in the game until the last minute.

Bradley coach Geno Ford says the Braves will need to play well against Drake and the key will be slowing down the Bulldog duo of Rayvonte Rice and Ben Simons.

Drake is 8-7 overall.
