Basketball and hills

Workout notes: I walked/jogged 8 miles this morning outdoors; I walked to Bradley Park and ran up each of the first 5 hills; that HURT. I walked the second hilly stretch so total was 8 miles. But I was surprised at how out of breath I got; I need to do more workouts like this one.

Friday and Saturday saw two Bradley Basketball wins: On Friday night, Bradley built up a 16 point lead and then held off a Radford rally to win 70-61; note that Bradley was only a 3 point favorite and Radford owned a win over Big Ten member Northwestern. Bradley shot 49 percent (compared to 42 for Radford) and had a 13 rebound edge; free throws were even.

Saturday: the Braves beat Miami of Ohio 79-68 in a game that wasn’t as close as the final score might indicate. With 2:19 to go, Bradley lead 74-54 and the coach cleared the bench.

It was a good weekend for Bradley Basketball.
