HATTIESBURG, Miss. (AP) -- Jeremy Crouch had 13 points and Bradley turned to its defense to defeat Southern Mississippi 56-43 on Wednesday night.

The Braves (6-2) held Southern Miss to 29 percent shooting in winning its second straight game.

Lawrence Wright added 12 points for Bradley. His basket with 8:12 remaining pushed the Braves' lead into double figures to stay.

Kyle Lamonte led Southern Miss (4-7) with a career-high 18 points. The slow-starting Golden Eagles had just seven points with 8 minutes remaining in the first half.

Bradley led 21-18 at halftime and gradually increased it the rest of the way.

The Braves outrebounded Southern Miss 36-28 and snapped the Golden Eagles' modest two-game winning streak that was their first since December 2004.
