first_imgStory Links Live Stats The Drake University men’s basketball team takes its four-game win streak and unblemished 3-0 Missouri Valley Conference record to the banks of the Wabash River this weekend to face Indiana State. Saturday’s contest between the Bulldogs and Sycamores is scheduled for 1 p.m. CST at the Hulman Center and will be broadcast on The Valley On ESPN3. Drake’s defense has held its last four opponents to less than 40 percent shooting from the field, a feat the Bulldogs have not accomplished since the first four games of the 2011-12 season. Additionally, the team has outrebounded two of its three MVC opponents with Nick McGlynn (Stoughton, Wis.) leading the way as he is averaging 10.3 rebounds per game in conference action. Drake Game Notes ESPN3 Despite hitting 15 or more three-pointers in a game for the fourth time this season and scoring 80 or more points for the seventh time, defense has been key to the Bulldogs’ quick start to the Valley race. The Bulldogs improved to 3-0 in the league to remain in first place in the Valley after dismantling Illinois State, 87-62, Wednesday night in the Knapp Center. Senior Reed Timmer (New Berlin, Wis.) torched the Redbirds for 28 points to move into second all-time in career scoring at Drake with 1,659 points. Timmer connected on six three-pointers as the Bulldogs sank 15 three-pointers in the 25-point win. Live Audio Indiana State is 2-1 in the MVC with the lone loss coming in overtime at Illinois State. Jordan Barnes averages 16.7 points per game to lead the Sycamores this season. Following Saturday’s contest, the Bulldogs travel to MVC newcomer Valparaiso Wednesday, Jan. 10. Print Friendly Versionlast_img read more

first_imgAdvertisement Advertisement(Image Courtesy: Newsfolo)The name MS Dhoni in Indian cricket does not need any introduction. The man from Ranchi won millions of heart across India for his style of play and for his coolness he portrayed on the field.Dhoni became the first captain in cricketing history to win all the 3 ICC Trophies. Added to this he also won the Indian Premier League thrice. In the 11 years he played for CSK he made Chennai his second home.But in all the tournament or series wins that have come under Dhoni’s captaincy everyone must have noticed that he usually doesn’t take the center stage and resorts to the last row. Recently giving an interview to the media Dhoni revealed the reasons behind such a practice.“Well, don’t you think, it is unfair that you play a team sport where the captain goes and receives the trophy? It’s like an over exposure. Let’s say that you already have an over exposure of like 15 seconds and after that I don’t really think that you are needed to be there. Of course, we all like the celebration and you want to be part of it. But it’s not like that you have to be with the trophy.”He further added on saying that it was a team game and he liked giving exposure to everyone.“That’s why, in a team environment, we try to make it as simple as possible. And as I said, 15 seconds of over exposure has already happened, so no point clinging onto the trophy. Also, maybe if you don’t spend enough time with the trophy, you get a chance or you want to win another one so that you get another of those 15 seconds.”Such simplicity and dedication towards the game shows why Dhoni is seen different from others.Also Read:Cricket: Aussie quick issues a strong challenge to Virat Kohlilast_img read more
