Mount Carmel grad Terry Nolan Jr. earns Missouri Valley honors

Terry Nolan Jr. of Baltimore was named the Missouri Valley Conference Newcomer of the Week after helping lead the Bradley men’s basketball team to its first league sweep of the season.

Nolan, a Mount Carmel graduate, averaged 14.5 points in a pair of victories against Evansville, shooting 47.1% from the field. He also added seven rebounds, four assists and three assists in the two wins as Bradley improved to 3-1 in conference play. He opened the weekend series with a 16-point outing on Saturday, making five of 10 shots with five boards. He then helped the Braves complete the sweep with 13 points in the finale, including a 3-for-6 performance from beyond the arc.

Nolan has excelled in his first season for Bradley. He ranks second on the team with 12.0 points and 3.3 assists per game, while leading the Braves with 1.67 — the second-best mark in the Valley and the highest average by a Brave since 2010-11. The junior transfer has had a big role right from the start of the campaign as he made a game-winning basket with 0.5 of a second remaining against Toledo — his first college contest in 623 days — and added a second game-winner versus Miami (Ohio).
