Drake Basketball’s NCAA Tournament Loss and Tucker DeVries’ Departure: What it Means for the Future of the Program

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. During his time at Drake, he made a significant impact as a true freshman and continued to excel on the court. In his junior season, DeVries averaged impressive statistics and helped lead Drake to several victories, including two Missouri Valley Conference tournament championships and appearances in the NCAA Tournament.

Darian DeVries had a successful tenure at Drake, with multiple conference championships and NCAA Tournament appearances during his time with the team. However, he has now joined West Virginia as the head basketball coach, leaving some key players and coaching staff behind. It is unclear if other Bulldogs players will follow suit and enter the transfer portal.

Tucker himself confirmed that he had been dealing with a shoulder injury for most of the season, which required surgery. Despite this setback, he continued to play and contribute to the team’s success. It is not yet clear where Tucker will end up after entering the transfer portal. But one thing is certain: his departure marks a significant departure from Drake basketball and will have an impact on the future of the program as it looks to move forward without some key players and coaching staff.
