Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

NORMAL (HOI) -- The Bradley Braves were looking to make it 6 straight against the Illinois State Redbirds tonight. However, poor shooting performances and a red-hot Redbird offense led to a 71-56 loss.

DJ Horne played well for Illinois State knocking down 5 of his 9 attempted 3-pointers. He led the RedBirds in scoring with 23 points.

It was a slow start for ISU but in the end they are happy with the result.

"Obviously really proud of our team and their effort tonight. We got off to a pathetically slow start and we have to work on that…but I thought the start to the 2nd half was the key to the game." - RedBird Head Coach Dan Muller

For Bradley, Elijah Childs was the top-scorer. He had a double-double recording 14 points to go with 11 rebounds.

Next game for Illinois State will be this weekend against Valparaiso.

Bradley plays Loyola Chicago starting on Sunday.
