DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) Nick McGlynn scored 23 points and grabbed nine rebounds and Drake rolled to an 81-65 win over Evansville on Saturday.

McGlynn was 9 of 10 from the field and 5 of 6 from the line for Bulldogs (11-8, 5-1 Missouri Valley Conference) who have won six of their last seven and lead in the MVC. Graham Woodward added 13 points off the bench, De'Antae McMurray and C.J. Rivers had 11 points apiece and Reed Timmer chipped in 10. Rivers led the team with 11 rebounds.

The team shot 54 percent compared to 42 percent for Evansville and had a 35-28 rebounding edge.

Drake dominated the scoring early, led 29-11 midway, and was up 46-29 at the break.

The Bulldogs led throughout the second half and a Woodward 3-pointer stretched it to 69-51 with 6:47 to go. Evansville's Ryan Taylor finished out the scoring with back-to-back 3-pointers in the final 40 seconds but it was not enough.

Taylor finished with 28 points for the Purple Aces (12-7, 2-4).
