Drake Basketball: Losing Key Players and Coaching Staff Marks New Chapter in Program’s Future

Transfer Portal Beckons Drake Basketball’s Tucker DeVries

Darian DeVries, the father of Tucker DeVries, recently discussed Drake basketball’s loss to Washington State in the NCAA Tournament. Tucker has entered the transfer portal, marking a significant departure from the team. Darian confirmed that his son had been dealing with a shoulder injury for most of the season, which required surgery. Despite the injury, he continued to play and contribute to the team’s success.

During his time at Drake, Tucker 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.

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. Darian DeVries had a successful tenure at Drake, with multiple conference championships and NCAA Tournament appearances during his time with the team. It remains to be seen how other Bulldogs players will respond to these developments and whether they too will enter the transfer portal.
