    PEORIA, Ill. -- Mamadou Seck had 15 points and 11 rebounds to lead Southern Illinois past Bradley 74-65 on Wednesday night.

    Davante Drinkard and Kendal Brown-Surles scored 12 points apiece for the Salukis (5-9, 2-1 Missouri Valley), who won their second in a row. Seck, who had his 11th career double-double, added six assists.

    Dyricus Simms-Edwards led the Braves (5-10, 0-3) with 17 points. Walt Lemon Jr. added 16, Taylor Brown 13 and Jordan Prosser 11 as Bradley dropped its sixth straight.

    The Salukis relied on 57 percent shooting (31 of 54) while limiting Bradley to 45 percent (25 of 56).

    Southern Illinois missed eight of its first nine shots but finished the first half sinking 16 of 18 to forge a 36-34 lead.

    But the game was tied 17 times, and Southern Illinois did not take the lead for good until Dantiel Daniels' dunk made it 48-46 with 15:03 to go.
