DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Seth VanDeest made two free throws with 1.2 seconds left to force overtime, and Drake dominated the extra session to beat Bradley 92-84 on Wednesday night and snap a four-game losing streak.
Bradley looked to have the game in hand after Will Egolf’s 3-pointer with 28 seconds to play put the Braves up 70-65. But the Bulldogs got a three-point play from Richard Carter before Bradley’s Tyshon Pickett was fouled and missed the front end of a one-and-one. VanDeest then rebounded a missed 3-pointer, was fouled and made both shots.
Drake, which erased a 12-point second-half deficit, never trailed in the extra session and led by as many as 10. Jordan Clarke led the Bulldogs (12-15, 6-10 Missouri Valley) with a career-high 20 points and 15 rebounds. VanDeest and Ben Simons scored 14 apiece.
Egolf had 21 points and Walt Lemon Jr. scored 19 for the Braves (15-13, 7-9).
