Drake Bulldogs Basketball History
The Drake Bulldogs basketball program first got together back in 1906, putting in motion a tradition that would grow substantially as college hoops popularized around the country. Although there have been quite a few exciting stretches, the Bulldogs enjoyed a period of dominance in the 1930s and again in the late-1960s and early-1970s. The Bulldogs have also had some exciting moments in the postseason, including four trips to the NCAA Tournament and one as recently as 2008, the year that they won the Missouri Valley Conference. Thanks to a strong program that continues to develop some of the best players in the MVC, the Bulldogs always have an exciting team that keeps fans coming back to the Knapp Center.
Drake Bulldogs Basketball Greatest Moments
After making it all the way to the Final Four in 1969, Drake's first trip to the NCAA Tournament, the 1969-1970 Bulldogs proved that the previous season was anything but a fluke. Following another strong regular season, the Bulldogs beat Houston to make it back to the Elite Eight, which they would do once again in 1971 to mark three straight impressive Tournament runs.
