Bradley players warming up. Koch Bar is not there. He is in class. One of the NCAA requirements for their approval of this game was that players weren't allowed to miss any classes. I assume he will get there when he's done with class.

"BU forward JoJo McGlaston not here tonight because he's taking a leave of absence for personal reasons. No timetable announced for return."

Stipanovich & Child's look good. Jojo is not at game, must still be in class. Most others are struggling.

Brown not wearing the prescription goggles he was reportedly going to wear.

I like that we’re looking to score instead of searching for it but we need to be stronger with the ball inside as we’ve had quite a few knocked away. Childs has a smooth looking shot and Lundy looks like a pretty aggressive player. Stipanovich looked pretty good in the last few minutes of the half.
