He finished the evening shooting 7-of-11 from the field, 3-of-4 from three-point range and was 13-of-17 from the free-throw line. Sophomore Graham Woodward (Edina, Minn.) followed, finishing with 18 points along with three assists for Drake (4-5). “[Reed] Timmer took the right shots tonight,” said Drake head coach Ray Giacoletti. “He’s come a long way and has developed into a two-way player by offensively being able to shoot and help the other players.”Junior Jacob Enevold Jensen (Lunderskov, Denmark) had a season-high 13 rebounds, six offensive, in the loss. Billy Garrett Jr. led DePaul (5-3) with 19 points and Darrick Wood had a game-high four assists. As a team, DePaul shot 57.1 percent from the field, made half of its 12 three-point attempts and got 22 points off the bench. “They came out with a little more energy than we did,” Timmer said. “But it starts on the defensive end.”DePaul opened the game with 14-2 lead as the Blue Demons made six of their first eight shots from the field while forcing the Bulldogs to 1-of-12 shooting to open the game. “To dig ourselves in that kind of whole within the first four minutes of the game made it seem like we were trying to dig ourselves out of it the rest of the game,” Giacoletti said. “I thought we had some pretty good looks, we just couldn’t capitalize on them.” Timmer rallied the Bulldogs back to pull within two points, 22-20, on a pair of free throws with 8:14 left in the half. The Bulldogs would remain within three possessions for the rest of half with a Kale Abrahamson (West Des Moines, Iowa) three-pointer as time expired trimming the deficit to one point, 38-37, at halftime.Drake took the lead briefly to open the second half, but a 16-6 DePaul run extended its lead to nine points, 56-47, with 12 minutes left. With 2:41 on the clock, Drake pulled within three, 66-63, on a C.J. Rivers (Cahokia, Ill.) three-pointer off a Timmer assist. DePaul answered with back-to-back buckets before a Woodward three-pointer with 30 seconds left pulled Drake back into the game. The Bulldogs attempted to mount a comeback in the final seconds, but the Blue Demons made five of their final seven free-throw attempts to preserve the win.The Bulldogs travel to Reno, Nev., to take on Nevada Dec. 12.
