WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) — Drake’s small, energetic contingent of fans sounded like it had waited forever to let loose.

The several hundred blue-clad supporters who got to see the Bulldogs in person on Thursday night ended up witnessing the team’s first NCAA Tournament win in a half-century.

Joseph Yesufu scored 21 points and Drake held on to beat Wichita State 53-52 in a tense First Four matchup between former Missouri Valley Conference rivals.
