BLOOMINGTON - The Missouri Valley Conference's 2012-13 Defensive Player of the Year has signed with the Bloomington Flex.
Bradley University's Dyricus Simms-Edwards signed with the Flex on Friday.
Simms-Edwards set a Bradley single-season record with 86 steals last season. That total was also good for fifth-best in Valley history.
"Dyricus is a lockdown defender. There are a lot of tough guards in this league that excel at driving to the basket and we expect Dyricus to be able to help us defend those guys," said Flex coach A.J. Guyton.
The Flex host the Lake Michigan Admirals Friday at 7:05 p.m. Listen on WJBC.com.
