Peoria, IL (Sports Network) - Dyricus Simms-Edwards scored 21 points to lead the Bradley Braves to a 76-70 victory over the Evansville Purple Aces in a Missouri Valley Conference clash at Carver Arena.

Walt Lemon, Jr. and Tyshon Pickett each netted 18 points for Bradley (14-10, 6-6 MVC), which has won two of three. Pickett grabbed eight rebounds and Lemon, Jr. handed out five assists for the home team.

For Evansville (13-11, 6-6), Colt Ryan poured in a game-high 27 points, his 11th game this season crossing the 20-point plateau. D.J. Balentine netted 13 points off the bench, and Ned Cox chipped in 10 points for the Aces, who have lost back-to-back games.
