Bradley managed to shoot 7 from the field with six points and three rebounds in the first half, supplying his team with needed energy. "You could tell Bradley was a little pumped up, a little too much juice in him at first as he tried too much to force things," Judkins said. "Then, I thought he relaxed and let it come to him as he did some good things." The first half was a chess match as each team methodically transitioned back and forth from defense to offense, never really gaining too much of a lead. Simister had the hot hand as he found the bottom of the net three times from downtown. The Trailblazers managed to take a lead into the break, , 1 I ; , t ' I. lA ii..,. t' , t : , , f 4 i , ,, t ,,, 1 i , , ,,:.,..., . , ,,,,...,..,, ..., . ,,,i.,.

After regaining their composure following the sloppy first half, the Trailblazers began playing inside out as they sought to work the ball into the post and back out if it wasn't open. Baskets in the paint started to fall, and the Blazers earned their points at the foul line. "The refs let us play both ways," Judkins said. "1 thought there was a lot of fouls both ways, but again, like that." DSU managed to stretch, its lead to eight a couple times in the second half, but the Cougars were not going to go down without a fight. APU fought back by cutting the lead to two with 1:29 to go in the game. DSU held on for the victory after key baskets from Bradley and junior forward Zac Hunter. "In close games, we are comfortable in that situa tion, whereas other teams probably overthink or force stuff up," Bradley said.

Win or lose, it's about how you do it, so we are proud of the effort tonight and d fo-rce- 69-4- 8. look to build on it moving forward." Many of the DSU players filed out very quickly following the game and junior guard Monique Washing- ton, a second unit player for the Trailblazers, declined to comment.
