Hello, new poster but a long time MVC fan and watcher.  Can anyone direct me to a bio over Tucker DeVries?  The Drake bball website hasn't seemed to added his bio.

Yeah, Drake's Sports Information department basically has nobody running it right now.  What do you want to know about Tucker?  Fans here can probably fill you in.

4-star recruit
Top-100 national player by several websites
Player of the Year in Iowa
Led his team to the state championship (he was one of 4 high D1 players on the team)
Son of Drake's head coach

Thanks...does Drake not have a sports information director?  Do they not have media guides for home games?  Just curious.

Just before the season, they lost their sports information director and assistant SID, both very good at what they do, in the span of a couple weeks to other jobs. Right now it’s just one graduate assistant handling all of that so definitely things being overlooked.

Drake’s long time SID left this fall and hasn’t been replaced yet.  I think the assistant SID also left.

even with a full staff, Drake never did a good job updating rosters/bios, etc

I agree. Hopefully they hire someone who can do the job.

I've heard one of the challenges is Drake salary pays way under what similar schools do, and that was pre-pandemic.
