Despite that disappointment, Bradley says it was a fun season.
“The bottom line is, we lost that last game, but it was a great year for us,” he said. “We were so consistent, and the reality was, they were fun to watch and fun to coach, because they played so hard, and shared the ball and played so unselfish.”
With many players who have been getting varsity experience over the last three seasons, the unselfish attitude came naturally.
“They had all been in the program since they were freshmen, and they expect that. That's just the way they play,” Bradley said. “But their chemistry was very, very good, and I think that allowed us to play even more unselfish, because they trusted each other so much.
“It's a process, but it wasn't hard to get these kids to play that way.”
