KANSAS CITY, Mo. - - Belmont University men's basketball senior Craig Bradshaw (Ridgetop, Tenn.) and junior Evan Bradds (Jamestown, Ohio) have been named to the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) Division I All-District team, the organization announced over the Easter weekend.
The duo led Belmont to its eighth regular season conference championship in the last 11 seasons, another 20-win campaign, and a berth in the Postseason NIT.
Fourth on Belmont's NCAA Division I era scoring list with 1,698 points, Bradshaw helped the Bruins to 94 victories, four consecutive postseason appearances, national Top 25 poll votes four straight seasons, and marquee road victories over North Carolina, Stanford, and Marquette, among others.
The 6-3 guard scored in double figures in 87 of his final 97 games as a Bruin, including a Belmont NCAA Division I era single-game record 42 points at Ohio (11/29/14).
During his sophomore and junior seasons, Bradshaw scored 1,099 points; fourth-most nationally among returning seniors.
The Ridgetop, Tennessee native was named one of the top mid-major players in America by USA Today and a national Top 100 player by CBSSports.com.
In addition, Bradshaw is a two-time CoSIDA Academic All-America® selection, becoming the fifth Belmont men's basketball player to earn the distinction multiple times.
On pace to graduate in May with a degree in public relations, Bradshaw is a two-time Academic All-District selection, the 2014-15 Division I-AAA Athletics Directors Association (DI-AAA ADA) Men's Basketball Scholar-Athlete of the Year, and three-time OVC Commissioner's Honor Roll designee.
Meanwhile for Bradds, who was named 2016 OVC Player of the Year and USBWA All-District, this marks the latest honor in his decorated career.
The Jamestown, Ohio native leads the nation in field goal percentage (.714) after pacing the country in that category a year ago. In fact, through 100 career games, Bradds' field goal percentage (.690; 507-of-735) ranks first in NCAA Division I men's basketball since the statistical category was first tracked in 1948.
Bradds will become the first player to lead the country in field goal percentage in consecutive seasons since, coincidentally, former Bruin Adam Mark did so in 2002 and 2003.
A three-time OVC Player of the Week honoree, Bradds averaged 20.1 points and 10.6 rebounds per game during the month of January. Bradds was named to the Lou Henson Award Midseason Watch List - an award presented annually to the top mid major player in college basketball.
Bradds ranked among OVC leaders in five statistical categories, including fourth in scoring (17.6) and second in rebounding (9.2).
During non-conference play, Bradds was an integral part of notable Bruin victories over Marquette and Valparaiso, among others. He also earned Legends Classic Subregional Most Valuable Player honors after making 22 consecutive field goal attempts during a three-game stretch.
In the classroom, Bradds is also a 2016 CoSIDA Academic All-America selection, a two-time Academic All-District selection and a two-time OVC Commissioner's Honor Roll designee.
This marks the fourth consecutive year that Belmont men's basketball has placed multiple players on the NABC All-District Team (2013 - Clark, Johnson; 2014 - Mann, Bradshaw; 2015 - Bradshaw, Bradds; 2016 - Bradshaw, Bradds).
