Jamestown Greeneview High School basketball player Evan Bradds decided to make his college choice now and get it out of the way.

At the end of verbally committed to the Ohio University Bobcats basketball program saying “that it was the right fit for him.”

Bradds, a 6-foot-6, 185-pound post player, averaged 17.0 points, 5.9 rebounds and shot 52 percent from the field as a sophomore last season.

He helped lead the Rams to their second straight appearance in the Division III district championship game, and was named Division III District 9 Player of the Year.

Bradds also considered offers from Miami (Ohio), Akron, Toledo, Wright State, James Madison and Albany.

If the name Bradds sounds familiar, it should. His dad, David, played at the University of Dayton, and his grandfather, Gary, a former legend at Ohio State, was an NBA first-round draft pick.

Bradds, who’ll graduate from high school in 2013, has the ability to be a big-time scorer shooter, he’s tough in the lane and can drive the basketball according to scouting reports.

Virginia Commonwealth University is a member of the NCAA Mid-major conference, Colonial Athletic Association.

The CAA is often disrepected by the national media, but it is a solid conference with VCU, Old Dominion, Northeastern, George Mason, Delaware, Drexel, Georgia State, Hofstra, James Madison, North Carolina-Wilmington and William & Mary.

The 11th-seeded team Rams used a suffocating defense to corral the taller and stronger USC Trojans in winning 59-46. The Rams up their record to 24-11.

Jamie Skeen scored 16 points to lead VCU into a showdown against sixth-seeded Georgetown (21-10) on Friday in Chicago.

Jio Fontan scored 14 points and Nikola Vucevic 11 for USC (19-15), which managed only one field goal over the final 9 minutes of the game.

The Rams shut down Vucevic, a first-team All-Pac-10 performer, was double and triple-teammed and never got into a rhythm.

The halftime score was 22-22.

In the 2nd half, the Rams found their shooting shoes to go up 34-27. USC came back  to 44-43 but VCU pulled away never to give up the lead ever again.

Shaka Smart, the VCU coach was making a return to UD Arena. He used to be on the staff of the Dayton Flyers under Oliver Purnell as the head of basketball operations in the last decade.

Miami University senior forward Nick Winbush (Shaker Heights, Ohio/Shaker Heights High School) has earned the Mid-American Conference East Division Player of the Week honors after averaging a double-double last week.

Winbush had back-to-back double-doubles for the second time this season and averaged a very impressive 18.5 ppg and 11.0 rpg as Miami moved a half-game into first place in the MAC East Division standings.

For the week, he shot 51.9 percent from the field and had five blocked shots.  He never took a rest in either Miami game. This is the first player of the week honor of Winbush’s career and the third for a RedHawk this season.

In an 86-80 overtime win over Kent State, Winbush tied a career-high with 26 points to take over first place in the East Division. He also pulled down 12 boards with 3 steals.

At James Madison, Winbush scored 11 points and had a game-high 10 rebounds in the one-point loss.

The Virginia Tech Hokies had a key game Thursday night in the Atlantic Coast Conference’s Coastal Division. Not only was it a key game, but a challenging since some of their other games were less than tight.

Tailback David Wilson returned a kickoff 90 yards for a touchdown with 2:23 to play, rallying the number 20 Hokies from a sloppy,  lethargic effort to a 28-21 win over the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets.

Virginia Tech is now 7-2 overall, 5-0 in the ACC Coastal Division. Remember, this is a team which was 0-2 to start the season after losing to Boise State and James Madison of the Football Championship Subdivision (FCS).

Georgia Tech lost quarterback Joshua Nesbitt to an injury before the end of the second quarter.

Virginia Tech still has key games left with North Carolina and Miami in the next two weeks before closing their regular season at home against arch-rival Virginia. If they can win those games, they’ll be playing in the ACC title game.

Georgia Tech falls to 5-4, 3-3 in the ACC Coastal Division.
