A banner season for Bradley Beal Elite alums ended with some shining moments in the NCAA Tournament.
Four former BBE Players participated in the NCAA Men’s Basketball Championship Tournament, better known as March Madness, over the last few weeks, and each left their mark on the tournament.
Jeremiah Tilmon’s Missouri squad only participated in one game, but the All-SEC Second Teamer made the most of his tourney spotlight, posting a 16-point, 12-rebound double double. Jeremiah shot better than 50 percent from the field in the Tigers’ first round matchup with Oklahoma, and also swatted two shots, had a steal and dished out an assist, but Mizzou unfortunately lost a hard fought game to the Sooners, 72-68.
Likewise, the Ohio State Buckeyes lost a battle with upset-minded Oral Roberts, despite a double-double from All Big Ten first teamer E.J. Liddell. E.J. scored 23 points and grabbed 14 rebounds, adding five assists and a block, but the Buckeyes lost in overtime, 75-72.
Caleb Love’s North Carolina club also suffered a first round ouster. Caleb scored 10 points and added three assist and a rebound, but UNC fell to Wisconsin, 85-62.
The deepest tournament run of the quartet belonged to Moses Moody, who helped push his Arkansas Razorbacks all the way to the Elite Eight, where they fell to eventual National Champion Baylor. Over Arkansas’ four-game run, Moses averaged 13 points and 4.5 rebounds per game.
