The mismatch: Struggling Valpo visited Bradley and the result was 88-66, though it was 49-24 at the half and the lead blew up to 33 points. Overall, Bradley shot 58.3 percent from the field and went 12-27 from 3 point range; but just prior to halftime, it was 6-10. BU had lots of uncontested 3 point shots and dunks.
12 Braves saw action.
4476 was the official attendance and it was a somewhat above average crowd for this year. The crowds just aren’t what they once were.
But before the game, I did a PT, deadlift and 5 mile walk.
Deadlift: 10 x 134, 10 x 184 low.
Intention was to boost my 4 inch lift to 6-8 reps with 270 (got 10 x 265 last week) but I made a mistake: 45, 25, 25, 10, 5.5, 5, 2.5 on each side; that plus the 44 lb bar makes 280, not 270. So when I tried, I was surprised at how hard the first rep was and so struggled to do 5 before I quit. I almost panicked. Then I recounted…”oh sure.” So I did set 2 with 280; and while it was challenging, it went easier because I was mentally prepared for the weight.
10 x 280 at 8 inch finished the festivites.
Then the back felt positively great for my “3 to 5 mile walk”; did a complete upper Cornstalk loop and then a half lower loop. I really felt good.
