Missouri State stumbles at Bradley

PEORIA, Ill. (AP) _ Darrell Brown scored 20 points with eight assists, Elijah
Childs added 12 points with 12 rebounds and Bradley pulled away in the second
half to defeat Missouri State 72-52 Tuesday night, maintaining a perfect record
on its home court this season.

Jayden Hodgson made a 3-pointer to start a 16-2 breakaway run that turned a
one-point lead into 17, 47-30, midway through the second half, and Bradley
(15-7, 5-4 Missouri Valley Conference) wasn't challenged again.

Ronnie Rousseau III and Jarrid Rhodes each scored 10 points to lead Missouri
State (15-7, 5-4), which made just eight field goals _ at one point it was
1-for-12 _ in the decisive second half, finishing 18 of 57 for 32 percent. The
Bears, preseason favorites, haven't won a conference road game in five tries
this season.

Bradley pushed its home-court record to 11-0 this season.
