In the midst of an exceptional season, TCU senior forward Vladimir Brodziansky is being recognized not just for his good play on the court, but his good works off of it.
After being named a candidate for the award last month, Brodziansky was named a finalist today for the prestigious honor, one of ten NCAA Basketball players to earn the honor. To qualify, candidates must have notable achievements in community, classroom, character, and competition.
Vlad is averaging 15.2 points and 5.0 rebounds per game this season after being named a preseason All-Big 12 Conference Team member. He was all conference second team last season after leading the Frogs to the NIT Championship. With a cumulative GPA of 3.385 and volunteer time spent at the Ronald McDonald House as well as homeless shelters in Fort Worth, Brodziansky is an excellent representative of TCU for this award. He is on track to graduate in May.
According to a press release from TCU:
The finalist were chosen by national media from the list of 30 candidates announced in January. Nationwide fan voting begins immediately to help select the winner, and fans are encouraged to submit votes online at the Senior CLASS Award website (seniorclassaward.com) through March 19. Fan votes will be combined with those of the media and Division I head coaches to determine the winners. The Senior CLASS Award recipient will be announced during the 2018 NCAA Men’s Final Four.
Joining Brodziansky as finalists are Shawn Anderson (Navy), Jevon Carter (West Virginia), Angel Delgado (Seton Hall), Rob Gray (Houston), A.J. Jacobson (North Dakota State), Justin Johnson (Western Kentucky), Yante Maten (Georgia), Luke Morrison (Army) and Johnathan Williams (Gonzaga).
