Local standout plays important role in Belmont's season

Posted:
NASHVILLE, Tenn. -

Craig Bradshaw, a former standout at Christ Presbyterian Academy, has played an important role for the Belmont Bruins this season.

After leading CPA to a state title in his senior year, Bradshaw spent much of his freshman year at Belmont playing behind Ian Clark, who now plays in the NBA for the Utah Jazz.

Bradshaw averaged just 9.3 minutes and 2.2 points a game last season, but is now the second-leading scorer for the Bruins.

He averages 16.1 points per game, right behind the team's leading scorer J.J. Mann, who averages 17.9.

Bradshow has scored more than 20 points in 10 games for the Bruins so far, and is also second in minutes played.

As someone who plays with a lot of intensity, Bradshaw is able to create scoring opportunities for his teammates and gains a lot of his points by driving to the basket.

He's hit his career high of 24 points three times this season, most recently in an 80-66 win over Morehead State.

The Bruins are 19-8 overall and 10-2 in conference play, leading the OVC East.
