Drury Panthers Players Celebrate Their National Championship Win - USA TODAY Sports

The Drury Team Is Excited About This Saturday's Visit To Cameron.

Saturday Duke plays D-II champs Drury, and while playing the D-II champs might not seem like that big of a deal to most Duke fans, it's a huge deal for the opponents. Check out what Drury coach Steve Hesser says: "Personally, I really admire Duke’s program. I’ve been following them since the 1980s. I have all the books, all the DVDs, I’ve studied what he has done with his teams," Hesser said. "Obviously it’s a tremendous opportunity. Their gesture of having the D-II champion come back, they don’t have to do that. It’s a great thing for small-school basketball."

That doesn't mean Drury is going to roll over. The reason Duke schedules the D-II champs every year is because these programs know how to win.

Hesser himself is pretty tough. The coach spent part of last season in the hospital with pneumonia which nearly went systemic. He worked his way back to a reasonable level of health and despite that, the team pulled off a 31-4 season.
