Since Bradley has only one public exhibition, I suspect we have a CLOSED SCRIMMAGE against an opponent, but I haven't heard anything.


Other closed scrimmages in the MVC have been made known...

Saint Louis vs Illinois State
Missouri State vs Mizzou

The Bradley auction - Bid for the Braves is officially
SOLD OUT!!!

(Hopefully this is a very good sign that the enthusiasm for Bradley basketball and all Bradley sports is finally coming back after the devastation left behind by the former admin)

500 tickets sold - but it is still possibly to bid online or via app

The Ole Miss game is still 3 weeks away but I ran across this thorough preview of Ole Miss
by the Virginia Tech writer who are going there to play them tomorrow.

A few comments:
"Ole Miss will play a guard-oriented lineup much of the time, as their
only player taller than 6-8 is not particularly productive.

...the Rebels haven’t exactly been hitting on all cylinders this season."

“Andy Kennedy has implored his team to play with an edge, the sense of
urgency needed to compete at college basketball’s highest level. That sense
was lacking in the Rebels’ 99-97 home loss to South Dakota State that
dropped them to 4-2 on the year.”

"This is an Ole Miss team that is good offensively, but they are struggling on
the defensive end of the court, and they are mediocre rebounders."


G Terence Davis (6-foot-4, 201 pounds, Jr.): 18 points per game (ppg), 5.8 rebounds per game (rpg).
Davis is a talented guard who was his team’s third-leading scorer a year ago.

G Deandre Burnett (6-foot-2, 191 pounds, Sr.): 16.5 ppg, 24 assists, seven turnovers. A senior guard who can score,
and who does a good job of taking care of the ball.

G Devontae Shuler (6-foot-2, 192 pounds, Fr.): 12.3 ppg, 10 steals. Shuler is a freshman who attended Oak Hill Academy
in Virginia. He leads the team in steals.

G Markel Crawford (6-foot-4, 210 pounds, r-Sr.): 10.7 ppg, 3.5 rpg. Crawford is a graduate transfer from Memphis
who leads the team in minutes per game at 30.2.

G Breein Tyree (6-foot-2, 192, So.): 7.8 ppg, 12 assists, seven turnovers. Tyree is another guard
who has shown the ability to take care of the ball.

F Bruce Stevens (6-foot-8, 252 pounds, Jr.): 6.5 ppg, 5.8 rpg. A JUCO transfer,
Stevens is tied for second on the team in rebounding.

F Marcanvis Hymon (6-foot-7, 220 pounds, Sr.): 6.2 ppg, 8.5 rpg. Hymon has started all six games,
and he leads the team in rebounding.

F Justas Furmanavicius (6-foot-7, 210 pounds, Sr.): 3.5 ppg, 2.0 rpg. Furmanavicius is a former JUCO transfer
who is originally from Lithuania."



One of the more interesting comments is about the Drake transfer Dominik Olejniczak:
"C Dominik Olejniczak (7-feet, 255 pounds, So.): 2.8 ppg, 2.0 rpg.
A transfer from Drake, Olejniczak has started four games, but
hasn’t been particularly productive in his 14.8 minutes per game."
