Bradley Basketball falls (but gives a better account), Trump rolls…



What do you do when you take a political junkie to a basketball game? You watch her look for caucus updates during the time outs…and if YOU are a junkie, you ask her the updated results!

And so it went. Bradley got bombed by Evansville 67-35 in the first meet up.
This time, they used excellent center play to keep in the game; they lead by 6 early and trailed by a narrow margin at the half.

In the second half, Evansville two-man wrecking crew was too much and the lead went up to 18, though a quick last minute flurry and a timely 3 cut the margin to 67-55 at the end. But it was NOT a close game in the second half.

Still, Bradley competed; they looked like a MVC team getting beat by an upper tier one.

Lynn got to meet Lou McMurray’, a local running icon who knew her dad Bill Dempsey. Bill played for the strong Caterpillar teams in the 1940’s and was inducted in the Greater Peoria Sports Hall of Fame in 2002. You can see the write up here. After the game, we found the wall display that her dad on it.

Oh, the caucus? Not even close.


Illness: well, I was feeling ok until I lay down to try to sleep…cough, cough, cough…so I took some syrup and that did the trick. I am in the draining phase and play to start light workouts tomorrow.
