Bradley Braves 

The Braves were able to win their first six straight games this year, taking out UAB, Utah State, Tarleton State, Tulane, UTEP and Vermont in that stretch. It’s been all losses since then however, as Bradley fell to Murray State, Indiana State and Akron in the next trio. In the loss to the Zips 67-52, Bradley was out-rebounded 41-30. 

In their latest appearance versus Cleveland State, the Braves were down 30-27 going into the second half. Bradley didn’t end up getting any closer than that and fell 76-69. Leading the team in scoring were Christian Davis and Malevy Leons, each with 16 points and a combined 11 rebounds. 

Duquesne Dukes 

Over on the Dukes’ side, they’ve only got a pair of losses so far this year. Those defeats came versus Princeton and Nebraska. Duquesne took out Cleveland State, Charleston, Stony Brook, Rider, UC Irvine and Marshall in their first eight outings otherwise. The Dukes posted 44.4 percent shooting in their 85-72 win over the Herd. 

Duquesne was able to keep it going in their latest matchup versus Saint Peter’s. The Dukes scored 35 points in the first half and 33 more from there on the way to a 68-59 win. Dae Dae Grant was the team’s leading scorer with 19 points, six rebounds and a steal. 

ANDREW’S FREE BRADLEY VS DUQUESNE PREDICTION 

I’ll stay with Duquesne. The Dukes are rolling along quite well right now despite a tepid shooting effort in their latest win over Saint Peter’s. In that one Duquesne hit just 39.2 percent from the field and 24 percent from 3-point range. The 36-31 rebounding edge helped propel the nine-point victory, though. The Dukes have given up 63 or fewer points in four of their last five victories. As for Bradley, they’ve given up 70 or more points in four of their last five outings. Duquesne should have plenty of scoring opportunities here and will cover if all goes well.
