Richmond, VA (WWBT)- The VCU men's basketball team returned to Richmond on Sunday and with the Rams' loss Saturday night came the end of one of the best careers VCU basketball has ever seen.
Bradford Burgess played his final game in a VCU uniform on Saturday, bringing an end to his storied career. The lone senior on this year's roster, Burgess was looked upon to provide leadership both on and off the court and did just that. He led a team that had lost four starters from a Final Four run to a school record 29 wins, a CAA championship, a berth in the NCAA Tournament and an upset win over Wichita State in the second round.
Burgess's numbers are stellar during his time as a Ram. He set an NCAA record by starting 146 consecutive games and was in the starting line-up for every game during his four year career. He also leaves VCU as the winningest player in school history, leading his team to 108 victories in his four years. He also is fourth on the all-time points list at the school and is the all-time leader in minutes played.
Burgess saw three NCAA Tournaments during his career and his sophomore year led VCU to a CBI championship. He was part of two CAA championship teams and a Final Four run.
