The Bradley Braves, who have a record of 21-8, will face the Valparaiso Beacons for the second time this season. In the first game, Bradley easily won with a score of 88-66, which marked their fourth consecutive victory over Valpo. The Braves have been doing well in the Missouri Valley Conference, having won their previous game against Southern Illinois to maintain their spot at the top.

They are also efficient on offense, scoring an average of 71.3 points per game and shooting 46.4% from the floor.
Valpo, on the other hand, has had a tough season and is ranked 10th in KenPom’s ratings. They have lost five out of their last six games, including a close defeat against UIC. Valpo’s offense is not as strong as Bradley’s, as they score an average of 69.4 points per game and are the worst three-point shooting team in the conference.
