I only think Drake can have one more loss and that would have to be to Loyola in the conference tournament final.Drake better make the NCAA tourney. They keep losing their best players and yet keep winning. I feel like their NET is high enough they can absorb a loss or two.
I think Loyola could lose first round and still make the tournament. Drake has to find some offense between now and next week because they looked totally lost today.So now Drake, down 2 starters and among their best players, has to win the conference tournament. If so, Loyola gets an at-large big.
A few years ago at a football gameI sat next to jim hallihan who told me that hornacek wanted the job when hoiberg got it. said hornacek was disappointed but understood why fred got it. also got to say i had a great time talking to jim during the game. afterwards my son asked me who he was so i told him and my son said i acted like a kid in a candy storeNot sure if the Drake coach is the best choice. Maybe we need to look at a former Cyclone like Jeff Hornacek first. I know he didn't set the NBA on fire, but that doesn't necessarily mean he can't succeed at ISU.
