Bradds Update

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - - Belmont University men's basketball graduate Evan Bradds ('17) suffered an injury to his right knee Wednesday in an NBA pre-draft with the Indiana Pacers.

As reported by Mike Organ of The Tennessean, during the tryout Bradds came down wrong on his right foot and suffered a tear to the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) of his right knee.

Bradds confirmed the injury to belmontbruins.com.

"I just came down wrong, I knew exactly what I did," Bradds said.

Earlier in the Pacers' workout, Bradds took an inadvertent elbow and endured a broken nose. He was attended to and continued to play.

Among a select group of student-athletes twice named Associated Press All-American and CoSIDA Academic All-American®, Bradds represented Belmont at the Final Four as part of the 2017 Reese's College All-Star Game.

Bradds led Belmont to 91 victories and four consecutive conference championships.

The 6-7 forward set Belmont's NCAA Division I era career scoring record (1,921 points) and ranks fourth all-time in college basketball history in field goal percentage (.667).

He tallied 98 double figure scoring games, including 30 of his final 31 games.

Bradds, two-time All-District by the NABC and USBWA, was also a finalist for the Senior CLASS Award and Julius Erving Award. 

Fans are invited to send Evan well wishes via Belmont social media accounts.
