Burgess gets invite to ESPY's

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - VCU rising senior Bradford Burgess was originally going to have to sit out the biggest awards show of his life. But eight days before the big night, the Benedictine star scored a ticket to the ESPY's.

Burgess will join the four graduated seniors and Shaka Smart next Wednesday at the Kodak Theatre in Los Angeles for the ESPY Awards.  The Rams are up for "Best Upset" for their victory over Kansas in the Elite Eight.

Burgess has had a busy summer.  He's attended skills camps put on by NBA stars Kevin Durant and Chris Paul. He was also hoping to get an invite to LeBron James's skills camp for the best swing men in college basketball.  But King James snubbed the VCU guard.

Later this month, Burgess is going to Colorado to tryout for the USA Team in the World University Games.
