Bradley coach Jim Les looked tanned and relaxed, despite the hundred or so 4th graders who were screaming just a few feet behind him. This is summer for Division One coaches across the land. Basketball camp, and preparing for a fast approaching college season.

Les is confident and upbeat about next season, despite adding 7 newcomers to his roster. Senior guards Daniel Ruffin and Jeremy Crouch return. That's one reason for Les' confidence. He is upbeat because the 7 newcomers bring a wealth of talent to Bradley. We are particularly excited to see 7-footer David Collins, a legit big man who figures to be a presence in the middle, something the Braves missed last season.
