Surprise finish

The Bradley men’s basketball team finished second in the inaugural CollegeInsider.com postseason tournament (CIT), but the big splash was from CHRIS ROBERTS ’10. Make that, the big bank.

Roberts garnered national attention from ESPN when he made a 75-foot miracle bank shot as time expired to propel the Braves past Oakland 76-75 in the quarterfinals of the CIT on March 23. Fred Zwicky of the Journal Star captured the stunning moment in this photograph (click here to purchase the photo). “The Shot” was the No. 4 play on SportsCenter’s top plays. His alley-oop dunk in the semifinals earned him the No. 10 spot two days later.

This was the sixth time the Braves have been invited to an inaugural postseason event.
