PEORIA -- Walt Lemon, Jr. hit his first field goal with less than 10 minutes to play and scored 16 of his 20 points down the stretch as Bradley broke away late in the game to defeat Illinois State 64-45 on Wednesday night.

Lemon was 0-for-5 from the field when his 3-pointer with 9:36 remaining broke open a one-point game for the Braves (9-13, 4-5 Missouri Valley Conference). Bradley launched a 12-0 run to make what had been a close game (six ties, five lead changes) look lopsided by the end.
