Bradley Basketball: As good as advertised?

I don’t want to exaggerate: Bradley is ranked 107 by the Sagarin ratings, and would be near the bottom of, say, the Big Ten or Big Twelve. And there were those blowout losses to Northwestern (unexpected) and Memphis (expected)

But BU is 7-3 vs. D1 competition (8-3 overall) and coming off of an 81-51 victory over a Georgia Southern team that isn’t that bad. Hot shooting (17 of 30, 4/5 from 3 point range) plus good defense lead BU to a 42-22 half time lead. But with about 12 minutes to go or so, GS cut the lead to 12 (58-46). But then game the finish which put BU up 79-48 with only a few minutes to go.

The dark cloud: BU lost one of its best players for 3-6 weeks with a hand injury. We’ll see what sort of depth the Braves have.

This was much better than it was before the current coach took over.

Workout notes: final exam mode. Weight: still 192.

rotator cuff
pull ups: 10-15-10-15-5-5 (the second set of 15 burned..I need to remember that)
goblet squats: 2 sets of 6 x 25

bench: 10 x 135, 3 x 185 (strong), 7 x 165
incline: 10 x 135
hex dead (handles down) 6 x 135, 6 x 185, 1 x 225 (couldn’t get 2), 6 x 195
shoulder: 10 x 50 standing, 15 x 50 seated, supported, 10 x 90 Hammer machine, 10 x 140 Hammer
rows: 2 sets of 10 x 50 each arm (dumbbell), 10 x 110 machine

It was ok…I think that I need to push myself a bit more in at least 2-3 different exercises during the workout.
