(4) Drake will play (5) Missouri State Friday on ESPN+ 2:30 PM.

Even though we defeated Missouri State just one short week ago, I expect this to be a tight close game. Missouri State did have to play today but did not face much of a challenge against Bradley. The Lady Bears eliminated us last year after we were the 7 seed. This is the first year of the 12 team tournament, looking at the men's tournament last week the 5 seed was the only lower seed to win on Friday.

If Drake wins, we're likely facing an Illinois State team that will be out for revenge for their loss at the Knapp Center.

Only only hope for NCAA is to win the tournament, otherwise we are almost certain to be playing in the WNIT again.

Drake sold out our allotment for seating, so there should be lots of blue there. It's not a difficult drive over.

Win and advance!  Drake had zero points off the bench and 19 turnovers.  Got to do better to defeat #1 ILL St. in the semis.
ISU hangs on to defeat Murray St 75-73.  Redbirds had just eight turnovers.

Would there be a selection show watch party in the QC after the women's title game tomorrow? Might have to make the drive down.

Would there be a selection show watch party in the QC after the women's title game tomorrow? Might have to make the drive down.

Highly doubt it. The game should end by 3:00 PM baring overtime, it's less than 3 hours to Des Moines and the selection show is at 7 PM (For the women) so plenty of time to make it back.

If you're referring to the men, surprisingly nothing is being organized at the Knapp Center or Courtside Club so I wouldn't expect anything in the QC. One of the alumni orgs put something together at Ducktail Lounge in Des Moines but the team isn't going to be there.

To re-enforce my NCAA tournament comment earlier, even with a NET of 53 (entering today) our best win is Nebraska who is on the Next Four Out list according to ESPN so we don't have any good wins to get in. The fact that we took Iowa to overtime is largely meaningless, officially margin of victory does not matter. Showing how much mid-majors are getting degraded by NET, over on the men's side Utah State has a NET of 22 and is considered a bubble team entering today.

That said, our performance this weekend should remove any doubts that we are going to at minimum the WNIT.

Drake vs. Belmont, 1:00 PM CT, ESPNU Sunday. Winner to the NCAA Tournament.

The Belmont/UNI game was very close throughout. UNI got very cold at the end, but otherwise we will have the edge on rest for sure.

Congratulations to the coaches and team. Great games this weekend.

All but one of our wins (all season long) has been by double digits. When they are on they play great.
