The Drake women visit Wichita State today and the winner will have the inside track to the Missouri Valley regular season title. Both teams are 13-1 in the Valley and this will be a game of contrasting styles.
Drake coach Jennie Baranczyk says her team is a little more focused on offense. The Shockers have a big edge in experience. “They’ve been there, they’ve done that, they’ve had it for a couple of years, so that’s what their players know, and we don’t, we haven’t been in this situation,” she says.
Drake wants it to be a high scoring game while Wichita State wants to limit the number of possessions. Baranczyk says the players are thrilled to be part of a big game like this in the last week of February and the first week of March. She says they have done a nice job of finishing off February and heading into March in a time she says can be “magical.”
