Des Moines, IA (Sports Network) - Jordan Clarke produced a double-double of 20 points and 15 rebounds to lead the Bulldogs as Drake outlasted the Bradley Braves for a 92-84 victory in a Missouri Conference overtime thriller at the Knapp Center.

Ben Simons and Seth VanDeest chipped in 14 points each for Drake (12-15, 6-10 MVC), which also received 12 points from Chris Hines. Richard Carter added 10 points to help the Bulldogs snap a four-game losing skid.

Will Egolf led Bradley (15-13, 7-9) with 21 points. Walt Lemon, Jr. tallied 19 points, seven rebounds and four steals while Dyricus Simms-Edwards and Tyshon Pickett scored 15 and 13 points, respectively. The loss was the third in four games for the Braves.

Bradley led by as many as six points in the opening stanza before it took a 31-29 lead into the intermission. The Bulldogs trailed at the break despite outscoring the visitors, 14-8, in the paint and also, 9-5, in points off turnovers in the first half.

The Braves were in control again in the second half and Egolf connected on a 3-pointer with 11:28 left in regulation to give them a 52-40 lead. Drake used a 19-7 run to go ahead by one point and the lead changed hands frequently the rest of the way. Egolf delivered another clutch make from beyond the arc with 28 seconds left to give Bradley a 70-65 lead, but Drake responded as Carter completed a traditional three-point play to put VanDeest in position to tie it up with a pair of free-throws just before the buzzer.

Drake ran away with it in the extra session by outscoring the Braves, 10-2, in the opening 2:30 of the period.

The Bulldogs enjoyed a narrow, 40-38 edge in the rebounding battle.
