If in theory it is difficult to win a college basketball game on a cold-shooting night, Bradley University proved the point Wednesday night, when the Braves (5-3) dropped their first on-campus home game since the 1982 MVC Tournament in a 72-66 loss to IUPUI (2-7) at Renaissance Coliseum. Bradley, which had been 5-0 in the on-campus facility since it opened in 2010, shot just 31.3 percent (21-67) from the field, 13.6 percent (3-22) from 3-point range and 67.7 percent (21-31) from the free throw line, cold numbers that offset 23 offensive rebounds, a +14 rebound margin (48-34), just 11 turnovers and 10 steals.  Bradley’s 23 offensive rebounds were the most by the Braves since snaring 24 in a 69-67 overtime loss at Wichita State Dec. 30, 2005. Junior guard Ian Chiles led the Jaguars with a game-high 20 points, while junior Khufu Najee chipped in 19 points and six assists and Donavan Gibbs added 13 points of the IUPUI bench. Sophomore Omari Grier led the Braves with 17 points, despite a 3-for-13 effort from the field.  Walt Lemon, Jr. and Tyshon Pickett both added 13 points, but the duo combined to shoot 9-for-31 from the floor, and Auston Barnes added 11 points off the bench.  Barnes, Pickett and Jordan Prosser all shared team-high honors with eight rebounds.
