Frontcourt: A

Will Egolf (12 points, 9 rebounds)


picked a great time for the best game
of his college career. Taylor Brown
(12 points, 7 rebounds) battled foul
trouble and Anthony Thompson had
four big first-half points.
Backcourt: A
Andrew Warren’s four 3-pointers
and Sam Maniscalco’s four late free
throws and five assists were just
the beginning. Every guard made a
contribution.
Bench: A
Not much in the way of points pro-
duction (7 total), but Dyricus Simms-
Edwards’ 3 steals and Thompson’s
reserve post minutes were huge.
Overall: A
Jim Les’ greatest regular-season vic-
tory at Bradley and first over a ranked
team since beating No. 16 Drake two
years ago. Hats off to the defense,
limiting Illinois to 40 percent shoot-
ing and coming up with 8 steals. A
tremendously consistent effort that
can have positive ramifications for the
Braves all the way to March if they
continue to have success.
