The Bradley Braves have shown more against better competition, and they’re capable of shooting much better than what they did last night against Auburn. The Liberty Flames haven’t looked great in 4 games against division 1 teams, and they don’t have that third guy who can create offense. I expect Bradley to shoot the ball better this time around and cover whatever the number is.
