Will Egolf of Haines returned to the court for Bradley after serving a four-game suspension and it didn’t take long for him to establish himself in the paint.

The 6-foot-9 senior scored 11 points, grabbed seven rebounds and blocked four shots in 69-66 victory over Southern Illinois in Peoria, Ill.

Egolf, of Juneau-Douglas fame, came off the bench and played 25 minutes. He made 4-of-8 field goals, including a career-best three 3-pointers.

The four blocked shots were a season high and it gave Egolf 73 for his career, ranking him No. 10 on the Bradley all-time list.

Egolf is just three blocks from former NBA player Hersey Hawkins, the school’s career leading scorer.
