New Era in Bradley Basketball: Braves beat Ball State 54-53.


Ok, the crowd was relatively sparse (slightly larger than last year’s) and BU went in as a 2 point favorite. Ball State took an 8 point lead in the second half but Bradley rallied to win 54-53. The win was sealed by an intentionally missed BU free throw with 2.2 seconds to go (Ball State had no time outs to use, so the missed free shot forced them to rebound and take a desperation shot).

No, this was not exactly a preview of the NCAA Final Four. But BU has one junior, one sophomore and one senior; the rest: all freshmen. So I’ll take it.
