Pryor’s 26 points lifts Robert Morris past Bradley

The Associated Press

PEORIA, Ill. — Junior-college transfer Rodney Pryor came off the bench to pour in 26 points to lead Robert Morris past Bradley, 68-6,1 on Wednesday night.

Pryor had three clutch baskets, including two 3-pointers, and a pair of free throws in the final four minutes as the Colonials (1-2) held on after letting most of an 11-point lead slip away. Lucky Jones added 17 points.

Robert Morris was up 54-43 after a Marcquise Reed jumper at 6:32, but the Braves (0-2) stormed back behind reserve Warren Jones, who had 24 points, to get within one.

After Jones missed a 3, Pryor hit one. Pryor finished 7 of 8 from the field, making 6 of 7 3-pointers and all six of his free throws. Pryor had 14 points in his first two games with the Colonials.

Robert Morris made 23 of 33 free throws to 14 of 27 for the Braves.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
