COACH AND PROGRAM

Even with one of the best players in the league on your roster, when you have to replace four starters and have no seniors, it could be a long season. It could be even longer when you start three freshmen.

The Bradley Braves had one of those years last season as head coach Jim Les searched for the right pieces to surround two-time first-team forward Marcellus Sommerville in the lineup.
