Summary:

ShanQuan Hemphill has had a solid senior season for Drake, but he missed considerable time due to a foot injury this year. He has not played in over a month, as he missed the 2021 MVC Tournament, but it is possible that he might play in the 2021 NCAA Tournament. If so, his team could use him, and they will play against Wichita State in the play-in game.
