Bradley Braves basketball notes:
The Braves won seven in a row before falling to Southern Illinois in the MVC Tournament Final. They have a superstar in Marcellus Sommerville and plenty of quality around him. Patrick O’Bryant is an underrated center who can score, rebound and block. Daniel Ruffin has proven that he is a quality point guard, dishing out 5.2 assists per contest. The starters can compete with anybody, but the key for Bradley to have success is their bench. Players like Zach Andrews, Jeremy Crouch, Will Franklin and J.J. Tauai need to be productive when Coach Jim Les needs to go to his bench. The numbers aren’t great in the turnover and three-point shooting categories, but the Braves are solid at the line, blocking shots and forcing turnovers. If they play their game, Bradley can win a game or two.
