ONU Blocked Shots from start of 2017-18 season

Bruns blocked three shots in the contest, giving him 172 for his 3-year career, breaking the previous school record of 171 set by Stan Mories (1979-82). Bruns started this season with 124 blocked shots and has added 47 already this season.

In last night’s win he added 30-points (9 rebounds), that leaves Bruns just 15 (1,985 career) points away from reaching a 1,000 points in his career during his Junior season.  He will join 38 ONU former players  in the 1,000-Point Club when he hits that mark.

Bruns will have his first chance to pick up those 15 points at Wilmington on Wednesday night.
