Denver, Colo. -- Senior guard Chris Forman scored a team-high 15 points, but it was not enough to overcome Bradley, who defeated the Lady Bucs 69-64 in the first round of the University of Denver Pioneer Classic in Denver, Colo.

The Lady Bucs led the Braves 29-22 at halftime. ETSU took the lead 11-9 with 14:06 remaining in the first stanza, and held the lead until Bradley took the advantage, 45-43 with 9:05 left in the second half. The Braves never looked back, outscoring the Lady Bucs 24-19 over the last 9:05.
