Bradley entered with the nation’s eighth-ranked defense at 59.9 points per game, and forced 20 Little Rock turnovers.
Cameron Corcoran scored 14 points and Jaizec Lottie chipped in 12 for Little Rock (2-8), which shot 35.6 percent (16 of 45) from the field. The Trojans made 9 of 25 (36 percent) from beyond the arc, just the second team to shoot over 30 percent from 3-point range against the Braves this season.
