Bradley Adds 17th Home Game
Release: Wednesday 06/20/2013 

PEORIA, Ill. – The Bradley men’s basketball program has completed its non-conference schedule by announcing a home game versus IPFW Dec. 10, which gives the Braves their largest number of home games in nearly a half-century.

The addition of the home date versus the Mastadons to the previously announced non-conference schedule means Bradley will play eight non-league home games. With nine Missouri Valley Conference home contests to be announced later this summer, the Braves will play 17 regular-season home games for the first time since 1966-67, when Bradley went 14-3 at Robertson Fieldhouse.

Earlier this month, Bradley announced the bulk of its non-conference schedule, which will include participation in an exempted, multi-team event for the eighth consecutive year; consecutive road games at Illinois (Nov. 17) and Arizona State (Nov. 22); a return trip to Las Vegas for two games Dec. 20-21 at South Point Arena; and a home game versus South Florida.

Bradley’s 2013-14 schedule also will include a pair of preseason exhibition games against non-Division I competition, which are to be determined later this summer along with home game times and locations (Carver Arena or Renaissance Coliseum).

The Braves will play at least 32 games for a fourth consecutive year. With Loyola University Chicago replacing Creighton in the Missouri Valley Conference, Bradley will continue to play an 18-game, double round-robin league schedule that will include nine home games at Carver Arena and nine road games. In addition to the 13 non-conference games and the 18-game league slate, all 10 league teams will compete in the 2014 MVC Men’s Basketball Championship March 6-9 at Scottrade Center in St. Louis.

Regardless of location, all 19 preseason and regular-season home games will be included in a complete Bradley Basketball season-ticket package at the Courtside, Platinum, Gold and Silver levels. At least 15 games will be played at Carver Arena and Bronze-level season-ticket buyers may select one of the remaining Renaissance Coliseum games to be included in the season-ticket package. Any available seats for Renaissance Coliseum games may be purchased by season-ticket holders in all levels at a reduced price during an exclusive purchasing period.

Led by rising seniors Walt Lemon, Jr. and Tyshon Pickett, the team’s top scorer and rebounder, respectively, Bradley returns seven lettermen from a squad that enjoyed one of the best turnarounds in the nation last year. The Braves made an 11-win improvement to 18-17 overall and advanced to the quarterfinals of the Postseason Tournament.
