Bradley vs Drake preview
Bradley (25-8) and Drake (26-7) will battle for the Missouri Valley Conference title and a spot in the NCAA tournament in St. Louis on Sunday.
Drake defeated Southern Illinois 65-62 in Saturday’s semifinals. Roman Penn led the Bulldogs with 16 points and five assists. Garrett Sturtz and Tucker DeVries each had 12 points, and Darnell Brodie hit a double double with 10 points and 17 rebounds.
Bradley, meanwhile, beat Indiana State 71-70 in the other semifinal game. Malevy Leons broke a 70-70 tie with a free throw with six seconds remaining. Ja’Shon Henry led the Braves with 17 points and grabbed seven rebounds. Connor Hickman scored 16 points and Darius Hannah added 10 points. Leons finished with eight points and seven rebounds.
“Fun,” Leons said of sinking the game-winning free throw via the Journal Star. “It was so much fun to stand there and photograph these. That’s why you play basketball at this level to get into that kind of situation.
After Bradley was fouled on a loose ball, Malevy hit Leon’s two free throws to give them the lead. Indiana’s attempt is not good.

“Then I watched [McCauley’s] shot the buzzer and it was weird like it was all happening in slow motion for me. I thought it would go in to be honest. It flashed in my head, “I can’t imagine not playing tomorrow.”
The Braves are coming into Sunday’s game particularly hot with a 12-game winning streak. Bradley averages 71.5 points per game and keeps his opponents at 61.5 points a night.
Drake scores 75.6 points per game and keeps teams at 64.7 points per game. The Bulldogs need to find a way around a playful Braves defense that’s averaging 7.1 steals and 4.1 blocks a night.
Bradley hasn’t lost since a 78-76 loss to Belmont on Jan. 21, and the Braves have lost just three times since December. Drake defeated the Braves 86-61 in their first meeting on January 14, but in the second meeting the Braves looked like a different team, a 73-61 win on February 26.
In the final encounter, Bradley secured the regular-season MVC title as Connor Hickman led the Braves by 19 points. Leons and Rienk Mas also had solid games for the Braves, with 12 points each. Drake had five players in double figures for the game as only two players from the bench played vital minutes.
The loss ended Drake’s 10-game winning streak, and the Bulldogs finished second in the final conference standings. Much like Bradley, Drake has suffered just four losses since the start of the new year and only two of those have occurred after Jan. 4.
Bradley is targeting his 10th NCAA tournament appearance and first since 2019. Drake is seeking his sixth big dance and first since 2021.
“That’s the whole reason I came back, because this team was going to be special,” Henry, a senior, said of the Journal Star. “Coach and I were talking at the end of last season and he said, ‘If you want to do it, this is the team to do it.’ I love these boys, they are my brothers. And to play at that level was always a dream of mine and my dad’s dream before he died. It’s crazy that I’m sitting here talking to you guys, but I just knew this season was going to be special.”
