Bradley Rallies Past Tennessee-Martin
MARTIN, Tenn. (AP) -- Walt Lemon Jr. scored 20 points and Andrew Warren 16 as Bradley came back to beat Tennessee-Martin 81-75 in a nonconference game on Saturday.

Warren scored 12 of his points in the second half, when the Braves (10-18) of the Missouri Valley Conference shot 53.8 percent (14 of 26) to 30.6 percent (11 of 36) for the Skyhawks (10-19) of the Ohio Valley Conference.

Tennessee-Martin led 44-39 after a first half in which Troy King scored 17 of his 20 points and made 5 of 6 shots from 3-point range.

The Skyhawks led 64-56 with 10:40 remaining, but Bradley tied it by scoring the next eight points. The Braves went ahead to stay, 69-68, on Jake Eastman's layup with 4:09 to play.

Warren secured the win with four free throws in the final 17 seconds.

Dyricus Simms-Edwards had 15 points for Bradley, and Terence Smith had 15 for Tennessee-Martin.
