Post Tagged with: "Women’s Basketball"
Needing one win to secure the second seed in the Missouri Valley Tournament, the Drake women took care of business by sweeping a duo of games to finish the regular season at home.
Guess what? Your lady Bulldogs made it to 20 wins this weekend and ended conference play without losing at home to a conference opponent. We have officially locked in the no. 2 seed for the Missouri Valley Conference tournament and will play our first game on Friday.
It’s March now: The weather is improving, the sun is shining and March Madness is in full-swing. For Drake Women’s Basketball, this is what it all comes down to. This is what they have been working towards.
In a premier matchup of the top two teams in the Missouri Valley Conference, Drake Women’s Basketball fell to Wichita State on the road 80-59 Friday night. Falling to 13-2 in conference play, Drake relinquished first place for the first time since Feb. 1 when they defeated the Shockers in Des Moines on Feb. 1.
I can hardly grasp that February is almost over and our season is winding down. We are 13-1 in conference play and have arguably the toughest road swing coming up this weekend.
The Drake Women’s Basketball team continued to win in conference play, sweeping two games at home this past weekend.
With great success comes great rewards, and the rewards are beginning to roll in as the Drake Women’s Basketball team continues their run through the Missouri Valley.
Four seniors– Carly Grenfell, Liza Heap, Cara Lutes, and Bryanna Mueller– have each made impacts on and off the court. The coaching staff has been ecstatic with how much they have helped form the glue that got the Bulldogs to the top of the Missouri Valley Conference and stay there.
As seniors, we hear time and time again to “leave a legacy.” While I fully believe in the power behind that phrase, leaving a legacy is not necessarily on a student-athlete’s mind, knowing that our days are numbered.
