The Drury University Men's Basketball team is getting a head start on their season with a rare opponent for the Division II school.
The Panthers got their invitation after winning the Division II National Championship earlier this year.
Duke, along with legendary coach Mike Krzyzewski, has made a tradition of hosting the winning D2 team each year at home in Durham, N.C.
The team left Springfield for a flight to St. Louis yesterday and arrived at the team hotel, only after having their bus die on the side of the road.
