Bradley University senior Will Egolf of Haines is quietly having the greatest season of his college career.

Quietly because he really didn’t have that huge, signature type game.

But that changed tonight.

The 6-foot-9 center pumped in a career-high 21 points in just 24 minutes during a 92-84 loss in overtime to Drake.

Egolf, of Juneau-Douglas High fame, sank 8-of-17 shots before fouling out. He went 4-of-7 from 3-point land.

In 22 games he has averaged 8.3 points, 5.5 rebounds, 1.2 steals, 1.1 blocked shots – all career highs.

Maybe most impressive has been his long-range shooting. He was 0-for-16 on 3-pointers coming into this season; this year he’s 23-for-70.

In fact, Egolf has made more 3s [23] than free throws [22].
