The Loyola Chicago Ramblers and Drake Bulldogs face off on Sunday in a college basketball showdown in the Missouri Valley championship at the Enterprise Center. When these two teams faced off on February 19th it was Drake that won 83-76.
Drake was led by Tucker DeVries who finished with 24 points. Lucas Williamson was the top player for Loyola Chicago and he finished with 27 points.
Drake comes into this game with a 24-9 record overall and they have won seven games in a row. Drake beat SIU in the first game of the Missouri Valley tournament, and in the last game against Missouri State it took overtime to get the job done, but they were able to win by a point. Drake is averaging 73.8 points while their defense is giving up 65.9 points per game. Tucker Devries has been the best player for Drake averaging 13.6 points while shooting 42 percent from the field and 33.5 percent from behind the three point line.
On the other side of this matchup is the Loyola Chicago Ramblers who sit with a 24-7 record overall and they have won their last two games in a row. Loyola beat Bradley 66-50 on Friday and on Saturday they beat Northern Iowa 66-43. The defense was quite impressive on Saturday and they are going to need the defense to be good again in this game. The Ramblers are averaging 74.4 points while their defense is giving up 62.5 points per game. Lucas Williamson has been the top player for Loyola Chicago averaging 14.1 points while shooting 45.3 percent from the field and 40.2 percent from behind the three point line. If the defense is strong in this game, this is a game they can win, but they can't be over confident in this game or it will be a long game.
Drake won the last game against Loyola Chicago, but the Ramblers are playing the better basketball right now, and their defense is going to lock down Drake’s offense. Look for the Bulldogs to struggle to get to 60 points, and Loyola-Chicago will cover the spread.
