Hot Lemon leads Bradley past Illinois St. 64-45
BRADLEY 64, ILLINOIS ST 46
PEORIA, Ill. (AP) -- Walt Lemon, Jr. hit his first field goal
with less than 10 minutes to play and scored 16 of his 20 points
down the stretch as Bradley broke away late in the game to
defeat Illinois State 64-45 on Wednesday night.
Lemon was 0-for-5 from the field when his 3-pointer with 9:36
remaining broke open a one-point game for the Braves (9-13, 4-5
Missouri Valley Conference). Bradley launched a 12-0 run to make
what had been a close game (six ties, five lead changes) look
lopsided by the end.
Illinois State (11-10, 4-5) was harried by 19 turnovers,
including 11 Bradley steals - Lemon had four. The Redbirds also
shot a cold 32 percent from the field with Daishon Knight and
Paris Lee each scoring eight points.
Tyshon Pickett scored 12 points for Bradley with Ka'Darryl Bell
adding 11 and Auston Barnes 11 points with 10 rebounds.
