QUICK HITS
:

· Quick, athletic guard who can score in bunches
· 6-7 wingspan allows him to be a defensive nuisance on the perimeter
· Brandenberg wore No. 23 as a freshman but switched to No. 11 prior to his sophomore year.  VCU great Kendrick Warren’s No. 23 jersey was retired several years ago and Brandenberg chose to wear No. 11 in an effort to leave his own distinct mark on the program.

Highlights:
· Scored in double figures 19 times, with a high of 22 against Duquesne.
· Secured four or more rebounds in a game ten times, with his high coming against Belmont and Duquesne (6).

· While senior Brandon Rozzell on the sidelines with a broken hand for an eight-game stretch, Brandenberg averaged 10.7 points and knocked down 13 three-pointers in nearly 25 minutes per contest.
· After his 22-point outburst in a road win at William & Mary, Bradenberg was named CAA Rookie of the Week.
