DES MOINES - Drake is ready for year 2 of the Ray Giacoletti era.

The Bulldogs went 15-16 last season, and hope to take that next step this year.

Giacoletti says while the postseason is the goal, it takes time to rebuild and get there.

Drake returns 4 starters, but also brings in 5 freshman recruits.

Senior Gary Ricks Jr is fully healthy and will lead the way for Drake which tips off the season November 15th.
