PEORIA, Ill. (AP) -- The men's basketball team at Bradley is off to its worst start ever in Missouri Valley Conference play after a 59-53 loss to Indiana State.
The Braves are now 6-11 overall and 0-6 in league play.
The (Peoria) Journal Star reports that Bradley trailed the Sycamores by as many as 11 points in the first half Wednesday night before cutting the deficit to two at 25-23 by halftime. But Indiana State (10-7, 5-1) pulled away from the Braves late in the game.
The Braves were led by Dodie Dunson's 21 points.
