Drake basketball on the plus side

Drake's 82-79 win over Evansville secured its winning season in 20 years. Right now the Bulldogs are 16-13.

Odds are against them at Missouri State on Saturday, so that'll put them at 16-14.

My estimations say Drake will play Illinois State in the Missouri Valley Conference tournament as a No. 8 or No. 9 seed. Tip-off is at 6:05 p.m. on Thursday, March 1. A win bumps the Bulldogs to 17-14 and gives them a date with Southern Illinois.

If Drake lost, it'd still be one game over .500, and it would be unlikely for them to receive an invitation to the NIT.

If the Bulldogs were invited, they'd be at least games over .500, and, well, you can only lose once.

No matter what happens, it's been a fun season. What was your favorite memory from the regular season? How do you think Drake will do in St. Louis?

Even though I'm a big Hawk fan, Dr. Tom taking down the Hawks was a lot of fun. Student sections and pep bands make the college game what it is, both were jumping that night.
