MVC college basketball action on Wednesday brings us a matchup between the Bradley Braves and the Northern Iowa Panthers.

The  Bradley  Braves look  to  bounce back  from  a 72-68  loss to Southern Illinois as a 1.5 point home dog on Saturday.

Bradley appeared to be in control with a ten point lead heading to the locker room but were burned by the Salukis 48-34 second half run.

Elijah Childs kept the Braves in upset mode with 19 points and six boards with Nate Kennell adding 13 points and four helpers.

Bradley saw 12 points from Darrell Brown  followed by Dwayne Lautier-Ogunleye with ten points and six pulls while Koch Bar chipped in with five points and eight rebounds.

The Northern Iowa Panthers are gunning for consecutive victories after upending Missouri State 64-59 on Saturday as a one point home favorite.

Northern Iowa held a 52.4%-47.6% edge in marksmanship including 5-9 from beyond the arc which was barely enough to squeeze out the win.

Spencer Halderman topped the Panthers offense with 15 points and three yanks followed by Luke McDonnell with 12 points and five helpers. 

Isaiah Brown gave Northern Iowa another 12 points while AJ Green and Tywhon Pickford netted eight and seven points apiece.

Bradley Braves are 3-8 ATS in their last 11 games overall and Bradley Braves are 3-10 ATS in their last 13 vs. Missouri Valley. Northern Iowa Panthers are 3-0-1 ATS in their last 4 home games and Northern Iowa Panthers are 10-3-1 ATS in their last 14 vs. Missouri Valley and Northern Iowa Panthers are 5-2-1 ATS in their last 8 games overall. Underdog is 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings and Bradley Braves are 1-7 ATS in the last 8 meetings in Northern Iowa.

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.
