Drury is in the GLVC’s West Division and is not on USI’s men’s basketball schedule this season, which is probably a good thing for Drury. It leads the West heading into tonight’s home game against Missouri-St. Louis with a 9-2 record and has won its last seven games. After tonight, it hosts Maryville on Saturday. If it beats both of those teams, Drury is well on its way to earning the top seed in the GLVC Tournament at the Ford Center because USI, Wisconsin-Parkside, Bellarmine, Indianapolis and Kentucky Wesleyan are in the process of beating each other up in the East. USI has beaten Drury four out of five times since Rodney Watson became the Eagles’ head coach. The only loss, of course, was by a point in the first round of the Midwest Regional at Bellarmine in 2011.
UPDATE: Drury cruised past UMSL 90-75 on Thursday night.
