The Braves rode a youthful roster to their first 20-win campaign in nine seasons; junior-to-be guard Darrell Brown led the team in assists, averaged 13.5 ppg last year and shot 35 percent from 3-point range and 80 percent from the free-throw line. Bradley will look for that next step from sophomore Elijah Childs, the top returning rebounder (6.2 rpg). Head coach Brian Wardle enters his fourth year with the program and has the second-most victories (133) for any NCAA D-I coach under the age of 40. Incoming freshman Ja’Shon Henry was a top-10 player from the Canadian ranks, averaging 28.5 ppg and 7.8 rpg as a senior.
