…AND DOWN GO THE WAHOOS

BRADLEY 96, VIRGINIA 85

Jeremy Crouch scored 27 points, including a 3-pointer that sparked a run that blew open a close game, as Bradley(20-15) beat Virginia 96-85 in the semifinals of the College Basketball Invitation Wednesday.


Virginia (17-16) led by as many as 14 in the first half before a 15-0 run sparked by back-to-back 3-pointers by Daniel Ruffin put Bradley up 31-30 with 5:44 remaining in the half.

Jeff Jones had a career-high 26 points for Virginia, Sean Singletary had 17, Adrian Joseph 15 and Diane added 10. It was the final game for Singletary, Joseph and Ryan Pettinella, and when Singletary came out of the game with 48 seconds left he received a long standing ovation.
