    CHICAGO - This Saturday's Ramada Worldwide BracketBusters game between in-state rivals UIC and Bradley will be broadcast live on Comcast SportsNet Chicago. The Flames and Braves will meet for the fifth time in school history Saturday, Feb. 23, beginning at 3:00 p.m. CST at the Pavilion.

    Jordan Bernfield will handle the play-by-play duties, while David Kaplan will serve as the color commentator. Bradley owns a 3-1 all-time series lead versus UIC. The two squads will be meeting for the first time since the 2008-09 season opener (11/14/08). Bradley will be making its first trip to the Pavilion since Nov. 10, 2007.

    The Flames (15-11, 6-7 Horizon) are 8-1 all-time in BracketBusters games, including a 67-63 win at Eastern Illinois last season (2/18/12). Against Bradley (15-12, 7-8 Missouri Valley), UIC will be playing its sixth in-state foe this season. 2013 will mark the final iteration of BracketBusters; the Horizon League was a founding member of the event 11 years ago.

    UIC will travel to Milwaukee for its Horizon League regular season road finale on Wednesday night (7:00 p.m.). Bradley will trek to Des Moines, Iowa, to take on Drake.
