PEORIA, Ill. (AP) -- Caleb Patterson scored 16 points and sank the go-ahead basket with 1:09 left as Missouri State nudged Bradley 51-48 on Saturday night.

After Patterson's shot broke a 45-45 tie, Kyle Weems hit two free throws to put the Bears up 49-45. Walt Lemon Jr.'s 3-pointer brought Bradley within 49-48 with 4 seconds left before Nathan Scheer added two foul shots for the final margin.

Weems added 15 points to notch his 100th career double-digit game for the Bears (12-9, 5-4 Missouri Valley), who snapped a three-game losing streak.

Taylor Brown led the Braves (6-15, 1-8) with 17 points. Jordan Prosser had 13 points and 12 rebounds, and Lemon scored 13.

Bradley shot just 37 percent (20 of 54), but Missouri State was worse at 35 percent (17 of 49).

Neither team ever led by more than six points.
