Drake Offers Pre-Order for Post Season Tourney

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — It sounds like Drake is preparing to host postseason basketball next week. The Bulldogs sent out an e-mail Tuesday telling season-ticket holders it can pre-order tickets in “anticipation of a possible invitation” to a postseason tournament starting Wednesday. Drake says if it’s awarded a home game for a tournament to be announced later, that matchup would be held during the middle of next week. The Bulldogs finished just 17-15 and have an RPI of 134, so an invitation to the NIT seems doubtful at best. The College Basketball Invitational or CollegeInsider.com tournaments would be next in line for a team with a resume like Drake’s.
