left in the game. Drake coach Ray Giacoletti immediately called
time, and his Bulldogs scored 15 of the next 17 points to wrest
control of the game.
Drake shot 52 percent from the floor, including 14 of 24 from
beyond the arc. Daniels had five 3-pointers, and Caird added 18
points, hitting 6 of 8 3-point attempts.
