Egolf hits the court for Bradley (Basketball)
Will Egolf bagged a half-dozen points for Bradley University last night in a season-opening 70-60 loss at BYU.
But just being on the court was a victory for the Alaskan they call “Snowshoes.”
Egolf, of Juneau-Douglas fame, returned to action after missing almost all of last season with a torn ACL in his right knee suffered Nov. 29 against East Tennessee State.
The 6-foot-9 redshirt sophomore also missed the final seven games of his freshman season with a sprained foot.
Egolf started three of six games last season before his injury, scoring 6.7 points per game and shooting a fine .571 percent from the floor.
The guy has proven he can play when healthy. The trick is staying injury free.
