Men’s College Basketball: Drake’s DeVries Honored

Des Moines — Drake freshman Tucker DeVries has been named a finalist for the 2022 Kyle Macy Award.

The award is presented to the top freshman in college basketball.

DeVries was recognized earlier this month by the Missouri Valley Conference as Freshman of the Year while earning spots on the All-MVC second team, newcomer team and freshmen team.

DeVries led the team in scoring (13.9) and three-point field goals (75).

He also owns the Drake freshman scoring record (502 points) while becoming just the sixth freshman in MVC history to score over 500 points in a season.

Drake finished this year 25-11.
