MVC college basketball action on Saturday features the Bradley Braves hosting the Evansville Purple Aces.

The struggles of the Evansville Purple Aces continued Wednesday in a 70-58 defeat at Loyola as an eleven point underdog.

Evansville has tasted victory once in the past month which has the team sitting in the Missouri Valley basement with problems at both end of the floor being an issue.

Marty Hill was the Purple Aces top option with 18 points followed by John Hall who came off the bench to score 13 points.

Evansville received seven points and four pulls from Dainius Chatkevicius while KJ Riley added six points and five rebounds.

The Bradley Braves hope to rebound from a 77-68 loss to first place Drake on Tuesday as a 4.5 point underdog.

Bradley has seemingly found the groove and even though a top four finish might be out of reach they are a team nobody wants to face in the playoffs.

Elijah Childs kept the Braves competitive with 24 points and nine rebounds with Dwayne Lautier-Ogunleye tossing in 13 points and hauling in ten rebounds.

Darrell Brown gave Bradley nine points and five helpers followed Nate Kennell and Luuk van Bree with eight and six points with van Bree snagging five boards.

Evansville Purple Aces are 2-8 ATS in their last 10 games overall and Evansville Purple Aces are 2-8 ATS in their last 10 vs. Missouri Valley.

Bradley Braves are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall and Bradley Braves are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 vs. Missouri Valley.

I have been a sports fan since I was old enough to pick up a ball and have always been drawn to competition. I don't participate in sporting events any longer but I do like to provide my opinion on games and writing gives me that outlet. I won't always be right but I always put 100% in to every article I do whether it's the World Series or an 0-10 college football team. Mitch shares that same passion and allows me to express myself in my own way.
