#13 Seed: The 2007/2008 Drake Bulldogs were one of the great CBB stories of the 2002/11 digital decade.  Coach Keno Davis' team did nothing spectacular - they simply executed their game plan to beat you.  One of the least stats/dominant teams of the 2002/11 digital dance invitees, they proved to be one resilient squad of tough-minded athletes.  These unknown players from this relatively uncelebrated program simply never self-defeated, The Drake Bulldogs suffered one of the cruelest daggers in dance history on a 3 point overtime runner-buzzer beater from Western Kentucky's Ty Rogers in a classic 101-99 March opening round battle extraordinaire.
