PEORIA (25 News Now) - The former No. 1 high school recruit in the country was in Peoria on Tuesday night. Emoni Bates and Eastern Michigan visited Bradley at Carver Arena. The Braves were not fazed. BU exploded offensively with five players scoring in double figures on the way to an 89-61 win. Malevy Leons led the way with 16 points while Ja’Shon Henry poured in 15, Connor Hickman and Ville Tahvanainen each scored 11 and Zek Montgomery chipped in 10. Bates scored a game-high 20 for EMU but nine different scorers for Bradley and stout defense throughout the game were more than enough to pull out the win.

Bradley is next in action Saturday November 19th when they host Southeast Missouri at 3 p.m. at Carver Arena.
