Drake Basketball Suffers a Double Whammy with Loss to Washington State and Departure of Coach Darian DeVries’ Son

Transfer Portal Beckons Drake Basketball’s Tucker DeVries

Drake basketball recently lost to Washington State in the NCAA Tournament, and it was revealed that former Bulldogs coach Darian DeVries’ son, Tucker DeVries, has entered the transfer portal. DeVries had been dealing with a shoulder injury for most of the season, which required surgery. Despite this, he continued to play and contribute to the team’s success.

DeVries’ departure could signal other Bulldogs players entering the transfer portal as well. Darian DeVries had a successful tenure at Drake, with multiple conference championships and NCAA Tournament appearances during his time with the team. The future of Drake basketball will certainly be impacted by these changes as the program looks to move forward without some key players and coaching staff.

During his time at Drake, Tucker DeVries made a significant impact as a true freshman and continued to excel on the court. In his junior season, he averaged impressive statistics and helped lead Drake to several victories, including two Missouri Valley Conference tournament championships and appearances in the NCAA Tournament. It is expected that he will join his father at West Virginia, although this move has not yet been confirmed.
