Drake Tops Bradley 62-55
PEORIA, Ill. (AP) -- Jordan Clark grabbed 16 rebounds, and Rayvonte Rice and Kurt Alexander scored 15 points apiece as Drake upended Bradley 62-55 on Wednesday night.

Drake (15-12, 8-8 Missouri Valley) never trailed in the second half and led by as many as 18 following a first half in which the Bulldogs trailed by as many as nine and went scoreless for nearly six minutes.

Walt Lemon Jr. led Bradley (7-21, 2-14) with 22 points and Jordan Prosser added 10 points with nine rebounds.

Drake shot 47 percent from 3-point distance while Bradley did not make a single 3-pointer on 11 attempts.

Despite its first-half troubles, Drake scored two unanswered baskets in the first half's final minute to lead 24-20 at the break.
