CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. (AP) - Jarekious Bradley had 18 points and Southeast Missouri State held on for an 82-78 win against SIU-Edwardsville Thursday night.
Bradley also made two free throws in the final second to seal the win.
SIUE closed to within 78-77 with 9 seconds left and sent Southeast's Lucas Nutt to the free-throw line where he missed the front end of a 1-and-1. Nutt responded with a steal and went to the line again with 4 seconds left, hitting both free throws for an 80-77 Southeast lead. The Redhawks (11-9, 3-4 Ohio Valley) immediately fouled to prevent a potential game-tying 3-pointer. Donivine Stewart made the first to cut the gap to 80-78 and missed the second intentionally, but failed to hit the rim which turned the ball over.
