Davis’ put-back wins it for Indiana State, 66-64
PEORIA, Ill. (AP) — Qiydar Davis’ put-back with six seconds left lifted Indiana State over Bradley 66-64 on Saturday in a regular-season finale.
Davis’ offensive rebound and follow-up came after Jordan Barnes’ missed jump shot. Bradley called a timeout to set up a final play, which went awry when Nate Kennell slipped after receiving a pass from Elijah Childs, who then missed a hurried shot at the buzzer.
Donte Thomas had tied the game for Bradley with 1:42 remaining with a bucket.
Barnes scored 13 points, Tyreke Key 11 and Brenton Scott and Davis had 10 each for the Sycamores (13-17, 8-10 Missouri Valley Conference) while Brandon Murphy grabbed 10 rebounds.
Thomas scored career-best 24 points with eight rebounds for the Braves (19-12, 9-9) and Dwayne Lautier-Ogunleye added 12 points and seven assists for the Braves.
Neither team had a double-digit lead.
