Jones, Bradley hold off Missouri St. for 61-59 win
Tramique Sutherland found Jones for a 3-pointer 25 seconds later to make it 60-56.
Ruder's jumper cut it 61-59 just six seconds later but missed a jumper to tie it with three seconds left and a potential winning 3 as time expired.
Bradley (7-14, 2-6), which shot 55 percent from the field and made 5 of 10 3-pointers in the first half, made just two field goals in the final 11 minutes.
Ruder led Missouri State with 15 points.
