BURGESS EARNS START, SCORES IN DOUBLE-FIGURES AT NABC ALL-STAR GAME
NEW ORLEANS, La. – In a game featuring 20 of the top seniors in all of college basketball, earning a start would be something special.
However, it was just another day at the office for VCU great Bradford Burgess, who played his final game as a college player at the annual Reese's NABC All-Star Game at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome on Friday evening.
Burgess, who ended his collegiate career as the NCAA's all-time record holder for consecutive starts made with 146, started at the second guard spot for the West squad, next to All-American Casper Ware.
The Midlothian, Va. native did as he always had as a Ram, scoring in double-figures with 10 points and grabbing six rebounds in 23 minutes of action.
Burgess' West squad fell in a high-octane contest, 103-99, to the East squad in front of nearly 12,000 fans.
