With forward Tank Hemphill sidelined with a broken foot Newton native Garrett Sturtz has stepped up with quality minutes.
The win over Loyola was Drake’s first over a ranked foe since 2008 and DeVries says it is a big boost to their NCAA Tournament resume.The Bulldogs beat the Panthers 80-59 in Des Moines last week. UNI coach Ben Jacobson.
