CARBONDALE, Ill. (AP) -- Dantiel Daniels had a double-double and Southern Illinois shot nearly 60 percent in beating Bradley 77-60 on Tuesday night.

Southern Illinois made 28 of 47 shots (59.6 percent).

Taylor Brown scored 21 points and Dyricus Simms-Edwards 13 for the Braves (6-16, 1-9), who lost their third in a row and seventh straight road game.

Southern Illinois bolted to a 9-0 advantage before Brown scored the Braves' first basket with 3:53 elapsed.

Bradley closed within 24-19, but Bocot's 3-pointer put the Salukis ahead 32-21 with 3:52 left in the first half. The lead stayed in double figures the rest of the way.

The Salukis swept the season series, having won 74-65 on Jan. 4 in Peoria, Ill.
