Heading into this weekend, Tyler Bradbury is two points away from owning the third spot in the single-season list and passing Jimmy Perkins (2019) and Colin Burke (2020) – both of whom had 31 points. He'll then chase after Josh Stout and James Sexton, who had 48 and 49 points in 2019 respectively. In addition, his 20 assists this season is second-most in a single-season at Utah. The Oak Park, Calif., product needs just six more assists to pass James Sexton (25a, 2019) and own the top spot as the single-season assists leader.
Cole Brams is set to surpass Seth Neeleman (54, 2019) as the single-season leader in ground balls. The Portsmouth, N.H., native is currently tied with Sammy Cambere (2019) for second with 52.
LAST TIME OUT
Utah resumed play last weekend but was not able to find the back of the net enough before falling to Mercer on the road 15-10. The Utes played well against the Bears in the first and fourth quarters, playing even ball, but allowed Mercer to outscore them 9-4 in the second and third quarters. As a whole, the match was pretty even up and down the stat sheet, except for Mercer's 45-24 advantage in ground balls and 18-11 edge in face off wins.
The #RoadWarriors continue their tour east of the Mississippi and faces one of the top programs in the country in Virginia next Saturday, April 17, on ESPNU.
