DES MOINES — A former North Iowa Area Community College men’s basketball player has been named the new men’s basketball coach at Drake University in Des Moines. Drake has hired Ben McCollum as its basketball coach. He replaces Darian DeVries, who was hired by West Virginia after taking the Bulldogs to three NCAA Tournaments in the last four years. The 42-year-old McCollum grew up in Storm Lake and played junior college ball at NIACC before finishing his playing career at Northwest Missouri State. He went into coaching at his alma mater, spent four years at rival Emporia State, then returned to the Bearcats in 2009 as a 27-year-old head coach. Over the next 15 seasons, Northwest Missouri State won four national championships along with 12 regular-season conference titles and eight conference tournament titles.
