Sports

Drake picked up its first MVC win of the year on Saturday.

The Bulldogs kept Indiana State within arms reach throughout the 40 minute battle, but were able to close them out down the stretch.

Five Bulldogs scored in double figures as Drake took down the Sycamores 80-76 in front of the home crowd.

They return to the Knapp Center on Tuesday when they host Loyola in an MVC tilt.
