Named Missouri Valley Conference Defensive Player of the Year and earned Second-Team All-MVC recognition following his sophomore campaign with the Bradley Braves...O`Bryant averaged 13.4 points, 8.3 rebounds and 2.9 blocked shots per game last season and raised more than a few eyebrows with his play in the NCAA Tournament when he picked up a career-high 28 points in the victory over Pittsburgh...Named to MVC All-Newcomer and All-Freshman teams ...Became just the second freshman every to lead the MVC in blocked shots with 2.8 per game in 2004-05 and came close to becoming the first freshman to also lead the league in rebounding with his 7.4 rpg...Finishes career with 11.6 points and 7.8 rebounds per game with the Braves...O`Bryant was forced to sit out the first eight games of last season due to a suspension levied by the NCAA for inadvertently violating the extra benefit rule after receiving money from a summer employer, and still he made enough of an impact to push the Bradley program to the top of the MVC and into the national consciousness.
