Evansville senior guard Colt Ryan was the only Purple Aces (12-8, 5-3 MVC) player to score in double-figures, but his 19 points were enough to lead the home team to a 66-56 win versus Bradley (12-8, 4-4 MVC) Wednesday night at the Ford Center.

Walt Lemon Jr. scored 16 of his game-high 22 points to lead three Bradley players in double-figures. Tyshon Pickett and Dyricus Simms-Edwards both scored 12 for the Braves.

Trailing most of the game, Bradley pulled to within 51-50 on a Will Egolf 3-pointer with 8:01 remaining, but the Purple Aces scored the next seven points to regain control and the Braves managed only two more field goals the rest of the game.

Bradley will continue its 2-game road swing Saturday night at Wichita State before hosting Interstate 74 rival Illinois State Tuesday night at Carver Arena.
