1/10/2008 - Drake Bulldogs

DES MOINES, Iowa -- Drake guard Josh Young, the leading
scorer in the Missouri Valley Conference, is out indefinitely with
a sprained right ankle.

Young is averaging 16.3 points per game and has keyed Drake's
13-1 start, the best in school history. The sophomore injured his
ankle Wednesday night early in the second half of Drake's 75-50 win
over Indiana State and did not return.

Drake has won 12 straight and is 4-0 in the Valley for the first
time since 1970. The Bulldogs are tied with Illinois State atop the
conference standings.
