JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (March 29, 2018) – For the second time this week, ETSU senior guard Desonta Bradford (Humboldt) learned he has earned an All-America recognition.

After being named to the Associated Press All-America team as an honorable mention on Tuesday, Bradford has been selected to the Lou Henson All-America team. The Lou Henson Award is presented annually to the nation's top Division I mid-major player.

Bradford, the 2018 Southern Conference Player of the Year, led the Buccaneers in multiple areas throughout the season and was in the Top 10 in SoCon play in categories such as scoring (15.4 ppg), rebounding (5.8 rpg), assists (3.5 apg), steals (1.9 spg), and minutes played (32.6 mpg). Bradford and the Bucs enjoyed a successful season in 2017-18, going 25-9 overall and reaching the SoCon Tournament title game for a third straight season.

Lou Henson coached 41 years. When he left the game in 2005 he was sixth all-time in career Division I wins with 779. He is the winningest coach at both Illinois and New Mexico State. He is one of only 12 coaches in the history of the game to take two schools to the Final Four.

The 2017-18 Lou Henson National Player of the Year Award will be announced on April 2 in San Antonio, site of the men's NCAA Basketball Championship. For more on ETSU men’s basketball throughout the offseason, visit ETSUBucs.com and click on the men’s hoops link.
