Brady Selected in Eighth Round by Utah Flash
Former UVU standout Jordan Brady was selected in the eighth round of the NBDL draft last week by the hometown Utah Flash.
“That’s a tremendous opportunity for Jordan,” UVU men’s basketball coach Dick Hunsaker said. “He has a tremendous passion and unmatched work ethic and energy to play.”
Brady, a 6-foot-6 forward from Vernal, Utah, played professionally in Europe last year averaging 11.2 points and tying a single-season school record for the Wolverines with 8.4 rebounds per game during the 2007-08 season. He had six double-doubles for UVU in his final year, including three straight to end the season.
