#20 - Bradford Burgess

#20 BRADFORD BURGESS (2008-12)
Burgess, who scored 1,684 points in a VCU uniform and helped lift the Rams to the 2011 Final Four was known primarily for two things: remarkable consistency and a knack for scoring clutch buckets, a trait that earned him the nickname “Big Shot Brad”.

A Midlothian native and star at Benedictine High School, Burgess started all 146 games of his VCU career to set an NCAA record, a mark he later shared with Syracuse' Brandon Triche. He joined Michael Brown (1982-86) as just the second four-year player in program history to start every game of his career.

Burgess was a member of three NCAA Tournament teams, including the unforgettable 2011 squad. He averaged 15.7 points, 7.0 rebounds and shot 59 percent (17-of-29) from 3-point range during VCU's magical Final Four run to earn a spot on the 2011 All-Southwest Regional Team. The Rams won 108 games during his career, at the time the second-most during any four-year period in school history.

He is fifth on VCU's all-time scoring and fourth in 3-pointers made with 231. Burgess, along with Warren and Charles Wilkins, is one of three players in program history to score over 1,600 points, grab more than 700 rebounds and dish out over 200 assists.
