They started as an independent team and joined the Missouri Valley Conference shortly thereafter. 1935 was the first year the Bulldogs won a Conference Regular Season Championship. Throughout the rest of the decade, the Bulldogs continued putting out relentless effort in seizing two more Conference Regular Season Championship titles.
After the ‘30s, the Bulldogs didn’t claim their next Conference Regular Season Championship until the ‘60s. Aside from that, they made their first NCAA Tournament appearance in 1969. This marked the beginning of a successful streak for the team, as they continued to dominate well into the ‘70s. Since 1971, the Bulldogs have managed to advance to the Elite Eight more than three times. College ball fans and alumni won’t want to pass up this chance at grabbing Drake Basketball tickets while they’re still available.

Several Bulldogs have been drafted into the NBA, such as Joey Wright of the Phoenix Suns and Mike Morgan of the New York Knicks. Drake University has an intense rivalry with the Northern Iowa Panthers. The two teams have been competing head-to-head in an annual rivalry series since the late 1800s.
